how wide (or is it measured in gauges??) were the standard 1 ton drive shafts.
I got to get a completely new one made to go to my 14bolt to my 208 so how big around does it need to be?

My rear is 3.5" .120" wall but it's already dented. Next one will be 1/4 wall but I doubt it will be balanceable. But nothing else on the truck is balanced so why should it be? :insane:

yuh, i MIGHT be getting the yokes/end's i need for free so i will prob just match it up to them. Ive never had to get a completely new one built (just old ones rebuilt) so im not sure what to really look for

my truck aint going to see asphault ever again so i prob wont balance it
