The CV style has some "slide" forward and back. If I weld a yolk on the
end, won't I lose that? It seems like I would need it. Maybe not. Advice?
Anybody got an old drive shaft like the one Joe describes they would be
willing to part with. The condition of the u-joints are not important as I
already purchased new ones from VB.
