What is the difference between 1310 and 1350 U-joints?

Size and strength. The 1310 series joint is what you would expect to find stock in most Jeep or small trucks. A 1350 series joint/shaft is what you might find in many full size trucks. While it’s not 100% accurate, you could say that a 1310 is a “half ton” joint and a 1350 is a “one ton joint”.

What is a conversion u-joint?

Conversion U-Joint 1310 Series To 1350 Series

Normally the larger the U-Joint the stronger it is. The 1310 to 1350 U-Joint Conversion is a mix of two different series specifications on the same u-joint so that that different sized yokes and driveshafts can be connected.

What are U-joints used for?

Universal joints allow drive shafts to move up and down with the suspension while the shaft is moving so power can be transmitted when the drive shaft isn’t in a straight line between the transmission and drive wheels. Rear-wheel-drive vehicles have universal joints (or U-joints) at both ends of the drive shaft.

How much drive shaft angle is too much?

Ideally, both driveshaft-operating angles will be 1 to 3 degrees. Anything over 3 degrees at the rear axle will shorten your universal joint’s life and could create vibration. If your angle is larger than 3 degrees, you must make sure not to exceed max driveshaft RPM as shown on this Spicer table.
