The driveshaft has the following features:

  • Consists of two single-cardan universal joints, a driveshaft slip yoke, a welded tube assembly and a driveshaft centering socket yoke.
  • The splined driveshaft slip yoke permits the driveshaft to move forward and rearward on the transmission output shaft during drivetrain movement and during driveshaft removal and installation.
