I was wondering if anyone had ever changed a yoke and had it actually cause a balance issue. So far everyone says put it on and go.

If it does vibrate after you change the yoke, it won't be the yoke or the driveshaft balance itself, it'll be the clearance between the new yoke, and the existing bushing in the back of the tailhousing.

I've seen that.

I like a Mark Williams billet yoke sized for a roller tailhousing, and a roller tailhousing.

The additional cost offsets the variable IMO. I don't enjoy fk'n around with stupid chit just to save a dime. Learned that the hard way long ago.

My driveshaft was balanced and had no yoke when I bought it from Strange.

I made sure diameter is correct for application. Appreciate feedback on strange drivesaft. Is more of a time restriction than cost and wanted some input.....

Chances are low, but if it does vibrate it'll be a clearance issue between the new yoke and the existing bushing in the rear of the tailhousing.

How long the bushing has existed in the rear of the tailhousing, determines ultimately, the percentage of possibility.

Good to go, unless you're changing the yoke because of a vibration. Wink
