Chevy Truck w/ 9" Ford Rear - Need Driveshaft Info

Here I am again asking "stupid" questions. My project is a Chevy S10 (350/350 for now) that I narrowed the frame on and a 9" Ford rearend. I am not ready to install the driveshaft yet but was wanting to know in advance how I need to go about fitting the driveshaft into the 9" yoke. Do I need to replace the driveshaft end with one for a Ford or is there a special u-joint made for this swap?

Thanks

chances are theres a u-joint to fit the application. i have a u joint going from a stock Chevy drive shaft to a for nine inch rear. I'm pretty sure theres only a handful of sizes used for U-joints. maybe someone will chime in who knows a little more of the details. of you can try googling the subject or contacting a drive shaft manufacturer.

Try these sites. They've got quite a bit of information on them. I've had a few custom driveshafts made for my Jeeps. A couple real odd-balls. They literally can make just about anything work with anything. On the 4X site, click on the tech tab at the top of the index page. Enjoy!

They do make a u-joint that fits, all you have to do is measure the cup sizes and cross widths and go to a parts store with the dimensions. I know Precision makes one, I just don't remember the part number.
