RE: [Chrysler300] Smooth as Silk drive shaft : )



I would not say poor design. Outdated maybe, but not poor.

After all, it was around for many millions of miles.

Just needed regular maintenance, like everything else mechanical.

I have done this .. Way to go .the old one is a very poor design . Good only for flat six . That is a great price . Maybe make some deal w club --send our shafts there . Even with 100$  ship if they are good and do it well it is a great deal . Too many duffers will ruin shaft . You need to be skilled to do perfectly , have right equipment . Nice find Rob .

The flanged Fitting for a modern joint is used on Winnebago motor homes , not an uncommon part .

Hello 300’ly to all!

    I just replaced the front ball and trunion u-joint assembly on my C with the upgrade of the slip assembly more modern front u-joint and I must say that I could not be more pleased.  The car runs as smooth as silk and is quieter.  It almost feels like the vehicle is at peace with itself!  I had tremors develop between 30 and 40 mph upon easy acceleration and again when accelerating above 60mph.  The front U-joint had 1/16th  inch play.   The grease retention boot was replaced a month ago when discovered that it left the party who knows how long ago.   The new u-joint was installed to the front of the driveshaft which was balanced with the rear u-joint in place and then installed.  Precision Drive Shaft in Oklahoma City did all the work and obtained all the parts .  3 day turn around time. $298.00.  Many thanks to Club members Mike Burke, George McKovich, Larry Jett, Murray Park and Jeff Carter for discussing the upgrade and helping me decide to go this route!  Rob Kern
