    I have a 1956 Dodge Coronet coupe, when I bought it the driveshaft was not connected to the rear end. There are flanges for where they come together, and I was let with no hardware to mount it to the rear end. I was wondering if anyone had photos of their bolts or know what bolts, nuts, washers, etc.. to connect their driveshaft to their rear end flange. driv.jpg drov.jpg DRVE.jpg

    It's just 4 bolts, nuts and lock washers. I don't remember the size, but it's the size that closely fits the holes; nothing special.

    Do not fear the ball and trunnion joint. It was used in the S/S hemi cars.

    Looks like you need a new boot also. I've heard the new ones they are making are Crap. Fleabay had some leather boots that might work. I had a friend that is a master leather man make one for me.

    I actually did find a full on kit to replace the bearing (?) and it has everything that comes with it so i should be able to put everything together from that image, and i did purchase it off ebay and it had a rubber boot!

    Use high quality fine thread bolts, with a plain shank, and torque them to spec. You don't want them coming loose. If you can't find OEM bolts from an old Mopar, then I'd be looking at aircraft bolts....Aircraft Spruce has a good selection, but you need to do some careful measuring and research to make sure that you get the right size.
