    I have a 9" Ford rear end and T5. The driveshaft I have matches up to the 9" Ford, has to be shortened and I have the Yoke to fit the T5. What do I need to match the front end to the T5 Yoke after I shorten the shaft? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :(

    The yoke that matches the T5 yoke. Is this a yoke?

    When you have the driveshaft shortened ... have the driveshaft place install the T5 yoke.
    They have access to special " mechanics U joints " ... which can have different sizes on the ends ... Or have them weld on the correct driveshaft end to fit the T5 yoke.

    You might check out a late 80's aluminum Corvette driveshaft. They are the correct size for my 32 roadster. No cutting of any modication needed. Fit PERFECT. It slipped right in the 9 inch Ford rear end yoke. Of course ... the placement of your engine and the type transmission used will affect the lenght needed for your 32 ;) :rolleyes:

  4. you will find u-joints know no brands. they make damm near any application i have ever needed the past 30 years. like duece roadster stated and i have known to be true hit the wrecking yard because their is probably one that will fit without cutting.
