I think I am just going to make that "joint" solid leaving the 2 u joints being the only points that can pivot. After spending some time at the shop playing with it, I believe that will work well.
my understanding and experience is that you need to REMOVE the rag joint and make a solid u joint connection at the box. I then think you will be fine. There should be a spline joint under there after removing the rag joint. The bolt needs to completely removed to remove the joint good luck ED ke6bnl
