9 inch owners with stock driveshaft PLEASE HELP!

Here the deal, I'm getting ready to install my moser 9 inch this weekend and wanted to use the stock drive shaft.

I've done a bunch of searching and come across a few guys who have but I need some part #s and some one to confirm what I need. I've heard that a U joint from an old Faraline will work because its longer.

I do plan to have one made over the winter, but right now I just want to use the stocker if it doesn't cost too much to convert the drive shaft.

If any one could help me out it would be greatly appreaciated

i have a ford 9" with the stock drive shaft and stock u-joint, if you look you can find that ford makes a 9" yoke that uses the same size u-joint as the factory gm

Re: 9 inch owners with stock driveshaft PLEASE HELP!

I've already got the billet yoke that came with the moser rear, I really didn't want to change the yoke on the rear. Was the different GM yoke longer to make up for the need of a longer drive shaft.

I'd like to use my stock driveshaft without modifying the length, just the rear u-joint if at all possible.

yup ford makes a 9" yoke that is longer and uses the same large u-joint as chevy it works perfect with the stock drive shaft, i dont know what ford vehicles they came on stock, i have an extra one here that i might part with for the right price,, i found it at a swap meet and bought it for an extra for my car

Re: 9 inch owners with stock driveshaft PLEASE HELP!

Have you tried contacting Moser for the proper U-joint to use??? Or you can take the Yoke and the stock u-joint to a parts store and have them match it up...

Re: 9 inch owners with stock driveshaft PLEASE HELP!

I havn't started the install yet, I'm just trying to get a game plan.

So, If I get a different yoke for the rear, Is there any problems with removing the yoke and distrubing the gear set? I just don't want to damage or mess with the pinion gear depth.

Sorry for all the questions...

Re: 9 inch owners with stock driveshaft PLEASE HELP!

nope, just replace the yoke, just dont over tighten it and you would be fine,

on my car if i used the small short ford yoke and the stock driveshaft i came up a bit short, not enough of the yoke in the trans

so i found the large long ford yoke's and it worked out perfect with the stock u-joint and drive shaft length

Re: 9 inch owners with stock driveshaft PLEASE HELP!

my moser has the 1350 yoke. I bought a Precision 447 u-joint from summit racing to put in my stock driveshaft until the Denny's Nitrous ready one gets here. It fit perfectly.

Re: 9 inch owners with stock driveshaft PLEASE HELP!

Removing the yoke may or may not affect your pinion preload. My 3rd member was built with a solid spacer so I'm able to remove the yoke. Some 3rd members use a crush sleeve to set the pinion preload; removing the yoke would affect the preload. You need to check with the builder of your 3rd member.

I had to go with a shorter driveshaft with my Moser 9"; I have a M6 though.

So your using your stock driveshaft with that u-joint. There was no issues with the length of the driveshaft?

Thanks for all the help guys!

Re: 9 inch owners with stock driveshaft PLEASE HELP!

need a 1310-1350 U joint! best bet is to goto a Driveshaft shop.. Autozone is really useless when it come's to this stuff.. Napa's tend to be pretty good w/ their knowledge so you can try them as well.. i have a stock driveshaft as a spare in case i snap any more.. From what i hear its a 3rd Gen Ujoint.. But i can't confirm!.. bring your yoke w/ ya if you can..
