pinion yoke u-joint question
So I ground a couple of brackets off of the Dana 44, went pretty good. I got greedy a couple of times and ate up the cutoff wheels too fast. I haven't had to grind something like this before so I am getting a technique. I started cutting the brackets a little away from the housing so then I could be careful getting the welds off, and use a hammer a little to knock some pieces loose.
Need some help on which parts to get. The Dana 44 pinion yoke is not made for a u-joint at all. I guess that is because of the cv shafts on the JKs?
I think that because I have a '95 I have a 1330 u-joint at the rear driveshaft to pinion yoke. I have found a place that sells 26 spline pinion yokes for Dana 44s to fit 1330 u-joints. Is that what I need to buy?
That would make it easy, I could just put my 1330 u-joint from the Dana 35 pinion into the Dana 44.

Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."
