Once you have replaced the pinion yoke installation is as simple as sliding in the transfer case yoke and bolting up the rear u-joint.

Some driveshafts with cheaper prices have conversion u-joints that step from one u-joint size to another or greaseable u-joints. Conversion and greaseable u-joints are not as strong as the cold forged solid cross u-joints that we use and have more play. Many of the cheaper shafts have cast weld yokes at each end while ours are USA made forged weld yokes. In fact, every part of our driveshaft from end to end is USA made premium product – assembled, welded and balanced by our team here in Indiana.

Once you have replaced the pinion yoke installation is as simple as sliding in the transfer case yoke and bolting up the rear u-joint. Prior to placing your order, ensure that you verify clearance to prevent any potential damage from the larger tube diameter.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\nYou won't be disappointed with your 5 inch aluminum driveshaft.

Heavy Duty 5 Inch Aluminum Driveshaft

This driveshaft fits 2001 to 2004 Chevrolet/GMC, Duramax, extended cab, short bed, 4 Wheel Drive trucks with both manual and automatic transmissions.

Use this driveshaft to upgrade your 3.5 inch steel 1410 series driveshaft into a heavy duty 5 inch aluminum driveshaft with 1480 series u-joints. Our Aluminum driveshaft upgrade offers a stronger and more reliable driveshaft.

This driveshaft is heavy duty from end to end. We use the Spicer cold forged sealed u-joint - the best and strongest 1480 u-joint available. The Aluminum tubing is 5 inch OD Arconic premium aluminum seamless material that is 1/8 inch thick -- rated for over 7,000 ft/lbs of torque! It will handle even the heaviest towing loads. We offer a lifetime warranty on our welds and a one year unlimited mile warranty on all parts.

The driveshaft comes assembled with the transfer case slip yoke, balanced and ready to bolt in. You will need to remove the 1410 pinion yoke and install the provided 1480 pinion yoke. This kit includes new seals and a new 1480 strap kit. Once you have replaced the pinion yoke installation is as simple as sliding in the transfer case yoke and bolting up the rear u-joint. Prior to placing your order, ensure that you verify clearance to prevent any potential damage from the larger tube diameter.

You won't be disappointed with your 5 inch aluminum driveshaft. Time and again customers are impressed at how well made the driveshaft is and better yet, how it helps solve vibration and carrier bearing problems - no matter if it is a daily driver, over the road towing rig or pulling truck, aluminum is the way to go.
