The unique design of off-set trunnions sets the mating yokes further apart than a more conventional joint. This allows for 10 degrees more flexibility than would be otherwise obtainable. While 10 degrees may not sound like a lot, with a 30″ drive shaft, this will allow more than 5″ of additional droop at your axle prior to binding of the universal joint. Our testing shows that installing this universal joint into standard yokes, the drive shaft will flex to 40 degrees.
*THIS JOINT WILL CAUSE DRIVE SHAFT VIBRATIONS. It is not compatible with double cardan (cv) assemblies. It should not be used in high speed applications.
