Well no becuase the stock cv shaft is 34 spine which doesnt fit in anything other than the flimsy stock joint. I found out these are rebuildable just not up to the same task as a 930 joint so i will just tighten up my limit straps and lose roughly 2" of downtravel which i probably wont even notice.
