I got the AA sye. They didn't offer a "cv/ non cv" yoke.
Go with the cv yoke. It has more clearance.

Alright but I guess my question is, is that the only difference? more clearance?

I've decided to just bite the bullet now and order an SYE.

I'm going to get the JB Conversions kit shown here.

Since I'm going to be running a DC shaft, I would need the CV yoke, correct? NOT the non-cv yoke?

The CV is Part #16-1200-1942

The Non-CV is Part #16-1200-1983

I'm a little confused as to the difference between CV yokes and non-CV yokes.
This, too, confused me! From what I read, the CV was better, and it was cheaper. From all I've researched, the CV has more clearance and is better than the Non-CV.

I emailed JB Conversions asking if it was a special and they said flat out the CV is just cheaper and always will be.

I'm going with the JB Conversions CV SYE as well.


Also, here's the difference in the CV SYE:

  • Our new yoke has additional clearance for those of us needing a high angle driveshaft. The new JB Conversions, Inc. yoke is also shorter than the competition. Internal spline length within the JB Conversions, Inc. yoke is held equal to the Spicer yoke at 2.00".

If you get a plate style t-case end on the SYE (like the 8.8's plate), you can run this when the tires get too big and the cute little 8.8 parking brake starts to suck.

Hmmm. Well it sounds like I'll be going with the CV then! Thanks for the info.

That would sure be nice to have. Although considering I've never had a working parking brake (and it's a manual), I don't think it'll bother me too much.


Got some more parts today..



Monstaliner One Gallon kit, black. And my free quart of chassis saver (which I'll be painting the axle with)

U-bolts came in from work (right ones this time)

So I've got most of the decision making figured out but i'm still debating on a few things:

-As far as the SYE, can't decide if it would be cheaper/stronger/easier to get the JB conversions one and order a DS seperate, or just go with a package deal SYE/DC DS from Tom Woods. Input?

-Since the stock ford flange yoke uses a 1330 size joint, I'm debating whether or not I should get the 1310 conversion flange yoke or just run a 1330-1310 conversion U-joint.
Are there any downsides to these joints in particular?

I think that's about all that I'm not sure on at this point.

You are getting a custom drive shaft???
Just have tom woods build you a 1330 one... cost should be the same.
The drive shaft in my pic is 1310 on one end and 1330 on the other. 1310 on the cv side. 1330 on the flange side.
The 8.8 is already pre-drilled for either 1310 or 1330. Just match the flange adapter to the u-joint. Cost is about the same for that too.
Custom...have it made to your needs...right?

Yes, that was what I wasn't sure about, cost. The website said it's more for the 1350 so I assumed it would be more for the 1330.
I'll have to give them a call on monday.

Did you get the SYE and the DS at the same time? i.e. I cant install the SYE and then wait another week, unable to drive, until the driveshaft arrives.

Wow! looks good. You know a really good trick for getting rid of that spatter? use Anti-spatter it comes in a spray can, pick it up at any welding supply store and you will virtually have no spatter just spray it all over everything before you weld.
