    Im new on here so please bare with me. I purchased a 76 fj40 disc brake axle from cruiserparts for my 70 fj40 and the bolt pattern on the drive shaft flange and the axle flange dont not line up. They are just a little off. I was wondering if I could just replace from the slip yoke forward to the flange with a later model or will I have to replace the flange it self from either the axle or the drive shaft?

    Thanks

    Welcome.


    You can replace the female drive shaft piece with a later piece if you want, or you can change the companion flange on the differential.


    Either will work just fine.
