try this

www.car-part.com they have lots of those..If you have the yoke and shaft that fits the tranny and the yoke and shaft that fits the rear you can take the mess over to the drive shaft guy and he can put the 2 together and fixx the mess..happens a lot when changing out trannies and rears from what was in the car originally..

400 turbo and joints

Do you have the 400 yoke? its thicker but you can find u-joints with large ends and small ends on opposite side so you can put the 400 yoke on your shaft . We should keep the part number s of because everyone has had this kind of problem . Try a couple auto parts place til someone helps size them up.

Is that a truck transmission with a bolt on yoke?

You must have a slip yoke somewhere. You must have some length-slip on that driveshaft so the rear can go up and down.

You can't mess around buying, shipping, and altering the length of one too for the time and money it takes. Just custom build a new one.

You can get a complete new driveshaft custom made for $ 150-200.

yes, use a short slip yoke.

it is best to pull the tail housing off and check clearances with the slip yoke.

there is a groove for the sealing O ring to sit in for the bolt on yoke. This groove can interfer with a slip yoke if a long slip yoke is used

I didn't realize that you can take off a bolt on yoke and install a slip yoke over that same shaft... thanks.
