    I have had great service from a place called Florig equipment in Conshohocken pa. They have been in business for more than 30 years and I have never had an issue. Highly recommend for drive shafts and spring re-arching.

    Quality repair is never too far. Spend money on crap you are going to have to keep going back to have fixed.

    Are you sure Memphis sold you a new shaft anyway? They do repurpose stuff and send it to their paint shop where they make it look like NOS when it's really a take off

    Why don't you buy the components and build it with the help of a machine shop?

    Did Wes say a 1610 u-joint?

    1610 is the series of heavy joint for large trucks. 1610s are a 279x u joints. Same joint that the front driveshaft and the between tandem shafts on a 809/939 use. 1710s are a heavier wider joint that are the 280x part numbers. this is the transfer case to the front tandem on a 809/939 and on some of the 5 ton FMTVs. Then there are 1810s which are big big joints.

    All of the components are readily available for the 1610 u-joints including flange yokes, weld yokes, male and female slip yokes and tube. Tube seems to have different thickness, 3.5" dia.

    From my experience, the slip joints wear out from highway driving. With the 2-1 hub reduction at 58mph those driveshafts are really humming away. Once you get play in the driveline you run the risk of throwing a driveshaft. This happens way more often than one would think. The manual has a hinging test it states .0015 inch of play is bad. The local unit that I know a few guys at say they cut that amount in half.
