Rear Axle Pinion Yoke Q's *Searched*

im swapping in 04 axles under my E99. i got the front end done and now just have to do the rear. the problem is i have a strap yoke on my current rear end, and the new alxe has flange style yoke.

my question is, would there be problem swapping the yoke(from my current axle) and new crush/nut and all or would it be easier to pick up a drive shaft flange end? will it shorten or lengthen drive shaft?

i havent done this specific swap, but normally adding the flange end has the effect of lengthening the overall unit but not so much that it causes problems. i would carefully measure both yokes from the inside mounting point to bottom of u in the ujoint mounting point . for a stock truck +/- 2" is not normally an issue , on lifted trucks the added length is usually a big improvement on spline engagement. also look on your slip yoke to see how far it actually rides in the seal from min to max travel. you can usually see wear marks giving u an idea of how much room you have to play with. sorry for such a long answer, but too long and it can cause catastrophic damage to transfer case,too short and you end up with less than desirable slip yoke spline engagement and at best a driveshaft that flies apart when suspension flexes at slow speeds to much worse happenings.
