I was looking into this sometime back when I managed to strip the head off one the bolts securing the strap. I bought a number of u-bolts from the HELP! section and couldn't get enough clearance at the rear of the yoke. Everything I found online regarding this 'mod' was for a D35 or D44. Were the yokes different with the 27 and 29 spline 8.25?? Would've saved me some bucks. I ended up replacing the yoke. :

Thats weird? I only saw 2 diffrent sizes, maybe my HELP section blows, hahah. But anyway, I didn't have any issues with clearance though. You can see in the pics there I had more then enough room to put the nuts on. Were your u-bolts extra long or something? And I think the 27 and 29 have identical yoke part#s.

I know this is pretty old... Has anyone else done this since? Yesterday I picked up a pair of u-bolts to use on my '00 8.25 (neapco 1-0089) and they fit the u-joint like a glove, but they look too narrow to fit the yoke properly. In other words, the U is too tight, and the ends are too close together to go into the holes in the yoke unless I bend the u bolts further apart or drill over sized holes in the yoke. Anybody have this problem?
