We stock a complete line of Double Cardan front CV driveshaft parts for 2003 and newer Dodge Ram 2500, 3500, 4500 and Dodge Ram 5500 4x4 trucks. These Dodge 4x4s use a Double-Cardan Constant Velocity (CV) Joint at the transfer case end, and a conventional single Carden universal joint with a flange yoke and axle end for the Front Driveshaft's. While the basic configuration of the shafts is the same for all years, the actual components used will vary depending upon the year and engine/transmission combination.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note: The Tech Term "Cardan" refers to a conventional cross type universal joint. A Double-Cardan CV joint is a constant velocity joint that has two Cardan type universal joints as component parts. For more information on this subject, see TSB3500 Universal Joint History, Types, General Service Methods, and Inspection or TM3000 Driveshaft Service Manual.
