  2. It would be useful to know what max horsepower or torque would dictate what size u-joint to use.

    • Hello Brandt, thank you for the question. It’s a good one. We don’t apply a HP rating to yokes or u-joints, but more so, we cater the size of u-joint to the usage of the vehicle. Of course, bigger is better in this case, however, maybe not necessary if a vehicle is not for race use. For a standard street car or truck making less than 600 hp, 1310 or 1330 yokes are more than sufficient, however, in a vehicle that sees heavy traction, or severe conditions, like a drag race or offroad race application than the larger the yoke the better. Even if making that same 600hp. So, our suggestion is be honest about how you are going to use your vehicle when ordering a rearend or a yoke or driveshaft.
