Ok here is the deal.. Im looking for a U-joint that will work with my setup. I have a fox mustang with 9" but Im using a "stock style" driveshaft. Im needing a ujoint that will fit my driveshaft and the 9". Prob is where it mounts to the rearend is a little bigger then the driveshaft side? Any ideas? Thanks guys.

I have gone threw this before in the past but it was a GM with a 9".

They make conversion joints. It's best to take your driveshaft and the yolk from the 9" with you to a good parts store (the guys at the Zone will look at you like your nuts). Make sure the driveshaft is not too long or too short. If the shaft needs modified it's best to find a yolk that fits the 9" joint and swap it onto the shaft while it's being worked on.

I run into this all the time when swaping axles in trail jeeps.
