Universal Joints Selection

We carry more than a hundred sizes and styles of U-joints, however for custom building drive shafts, we use only five as they are by far the most common on consumer vehicles.  For an explanation on how to determine which u-joints you need, click here(Note: the U-joint in the front may not necessarily be the same as the U-joint in the rear.)

Length

The length measurement must be accurate.  Click here for details and if you have any questions please contact us: drivelineofpgh@gmail.com.  We will not be responsible if we are given the wrong measurement, so it's better to ask questions first rather than have to pay for a second drive shaft.
