    Looks like the bottom one. 2 d’s back to back. They can be various sizes.

    Ok thanks. Yeah mine looks like the top one actually. Diameter measures 1".

    Guess I'll call borgeson tomorrw and see what I need to get.

    I'l probably just do the lower joint to keep the cost down since I also want to get the global west rear leafs soon as well.

    The stock shaft is made to bolt on to the rag joint. Up at the column end, it has two pivot points that stick out to attach to the stock bell joint. This means new borgeson U joints will not be able to attach to your existing shaft. I think is all or nothing if you go the boreson route. The individual peices are not compatable with stock stuff.

    I got a Jeep shaft forever ago from a guy on TG.O, but haven't driven with it yet. They do seem a little wimpy.

    Too bad I didn't clearance that part of the subframe while I recently had it cut up in bare metal. haha

    Parts arrived today...

    damn, these things look seriously heavy duty. Looking forward to getting them on the car!

    So far you guys on this site have been 100% correct on the benefits of the Y-braces and upper control arms... so I expect the same here! :)

    If anyone is on the fence about this, do it. It is a solid upgrade
