    So I am replacing my rear u joint, at the rear third member flange and I went to oreilly they looked up the part and I was on my way, when I get home I find its not the right size, so I go back with the u joint I took out and the guy at the desk was very confused saying he has never seen a u joint with two different lengths across the "X" He then proceeded to pull out about 10-12 other ujoints from the back parts shelf and none were the right size. Does anyone have a part # for this? I have searched the forum and haven't come up with anyone that ran into this problem, just want to have the right part # for this odd shaped u joint.


    Just went outside and took out middle u joint in rear driveshaft to see if I could confirm they are all the same size, the rear has one side that is shorter..... here is a picture... same on one axis and shorter on the other (horizontal in pic):

    It is shorter on that one side because the yoke from the rear-most flange that connects to the differential is smaller as seen in this pic:

    Is this not normal?

    dafuq. They should all be the same size!

    Is the one you are replacing an "original" to the best of your knowledge. Reason i ask is it is not, originals would have zerks in one of the end caps.

    Glad Im not the only one thinking this... It very well could be un-original, but the only reason I noticed it was different is because I tried installing the "normal size" one and it would not fit in the rear yoke.

    ---I just bought the truck a couple weeks ago, 130k miles, Im the third owner, maintenance history was blurry so I am going through everything

    @excorcist Are there any part numbers on the flanges? I can compare to mine.

    Thank you so so much for the help, just waking up first thing I check hoping that someone has some input and luckily you do...

    Part numbers on mine: On one face it says SPR, the other A4994, and the other F22871, pics coming shortly:

    Good morning. I'm willing to bet your Driveshaft is factory and the yoke flange has been replaced. Compare your Ujonit to these measurments, I bet one side (driveshaft side) matches.

    Yes the driveshaft side is same as factory, the yoke from the rear end is smaller, I am off to try and find a 5001905 yoke today... Any idea if there are aftermarket ones that may be easier to source? I have been chasing a rear end wine, kind of interesting to run into this, although I highly doubt the are correlated.

    Again thank you so much for the input. Was getting very confused, wonder why someone would have done this?
