Bronco U-Joints

U-Joint 3 7/8" Dana Spicer 1330 series u-joints
1980-96 Bronco
1980-96 Ford Truck

 

A corporate 14 bolt uses 1350 series u-joint and a stock driveshaft will fit with a 5" lift but will need a combination joint (half 1330 and half 1350) or a strip of plumber's tape around the joint on the 14 bolt side (not recommended for anything long term)

 

Combination u-joints can often be put together at a part's store by finding two different u-joints and switching the caps.

U-Joint Info

U-joints come in a lot of different configurations and are manufactured by a lot of different companies. 

 

Brand - For general use (both highway and heavy offroading), Warn industries has found that Spicer brand u-joints are superior to all other brands (the closest competitor was 85% the strength).

 

Solid Body U-Joint

Body Fitted Zerk Fitting

Capped Grease Fitting

        

Grease fitting configuration -

 

Size - bigger = better.  Late model Broncos come with 1330 u-joints.  1350 are stronger and 1410 are stronger yet.

NOTE: D is the Ujoint cap diameter
E is the outside dimension across the joint from cap to cap
R is the diameter of the machined seal surface
Q is the length though the hole, and while not absolutely critical should be close o as to allow proper pinion nut tightening
S is the total "length" of the yoke, and as such, assuming Q is close, will affect driveshaft length slightly
