Picked up the tires and u joints this morning. Very happy with my purchase. Here is the deal though. The Super Joints still have chromo inner axle shafts attached to them. I had to pay more for the joints because the guy didn't want to separate, but I still got a great deal anyway and can sell the chromos for ~$100-150 if I want (only paid $200 for the joints and shafts). The chromos are for a F150 hp44. Im currently building a F250 hp44 though, and for some stupid reason they have slightly different axle shaft lengths. As I ranted about a couple pages back, I still need a driver side inner chromo for my f250 housing. The f150 driver side inner that I bought with the u joints is exactly 0.29" longer than the f250 shaft. That is completely stupid. They are from similar year model vehicles, why not have interchangeable parts? What I need to know is if that .29" is enough to make a difference. I'm hoping there is enough leeway in the carrier to allow the slightly longer shaft. That would keep me from having to spend $100 on a new chromo. Anyone have a definitive answer for me? If not Im gonna post a thread about it.
The passenger side f150 shaft is well over an inch shorter than the f250 shaft, so I know that one is of no use to me. Even a cheapo USA Standard passenger inner shaft is $150 new for a f150, so even selling it alone I should be able to grab $75 or so (pretty sure these shafts are Alloy USA).
