What most people don't realize is that the u-joint straps are designed to stretch and conform the to the u-joint when tightened. Once they have been stretched once, they should not be re-used. Using old straps can prevent your u-joint from being held in place firmly and securely. If you have a strap and bolt style yoke and are getting a new drive shaft, you should get a fresh set of straps and bolts. Fits Jeep and Ford yokes, does not fit Chevy or GM yokes.
Only fits 1310 series yokes with threaded holes. If your yoke has non-threaded holes, you may need a set of u-bolts instead.
When you replace your U-joints or driveshaft, it is not worth trying to reuse the old bolts and straps. You never know the weak spot. Just replace them with these new units.
My new Tom Woods front driveshaft for the Dana 30 is more than spectacular. I got the x spline And let me tell you what, this thing is beefy heavy and totally solid night and day from the stock Drive shaft I recommend Tom Woods for any driveshaft
Well, this is why buyers need to pay attention to what it is they are buying. I bought the wrong set and they did not fit my pinion yoke. The straps fit but the bolts were to small, the wrong size bolts, and trhe holes in the ends of the straps were therefore to small and I would have had to drill them out and then do something to enlarge the area where the head of the bolt was to go. I wasn't going to do that to a perfectly good set of straps so I had to go get another set from an off road shop here in town. And they were a Jeep place to and had to get the straps for my GM pinion yoke from somewhere. They weren't Spicer but they were a better than stock part and worked. So I put them in my yoke. I have decided to keep those I got from you because as a hot rodder you never know what may come up and I would have something I could use. You know?
Bought an 03 TJ in 2012, 29,000 miles on it. Had a 2"BL, 2" spring lift, and 1" skid drop. I drove it this way for over 100,000 miles. It worked okay, but I couldn't stand that it wasn't RIGHT. Finally upgraded the drivetrain a more correct situation with MM, belly-up, CA, and Tom Wood's DS. This corrected multiple issues it had. With all that was done, Tom Wood's DS was definitely the best experience of it all. Gave them what they required, and they gave me more than I needed, in the most timely manner. I will be suggesting them to anyone who has questions regarding drive shafts from now on.
Excellent quality & fit
