Expert:  Kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

Have them cross a 60-1375

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
38" was length they gave me I checked only 23"
Expert:  Kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

Did they cross reference the 60 - 1373? It's the same length as the opposite side just has a different inboard joint.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Flash! There is short splined stub shaft with a replaceable seal race slid into the cv shaft with a external snap ring. You need to clamp a vise grip onto the shaft and tap it to remove the stub shaft. Drive this into the new shaft and your set. So in the end both shafts are the same, they just forgot one small detail reusing the stub shaft. A learning session all around.hope this will help you, thanks for your input.

I asked you about the links. You should the only difference was the inboard joint. I'm glad you were able to figure this problem out.
