Guys, are our drive lines 2 piece or one piece?  Replaceable u-joints or throw away drive lines?

1 Driveshaft, 2 replacable U-joints and yoke.
Although you could through everything away of course and buy new

1 piece shaft.  As herman said 2 U-Joints.  I believe the Universal number is 415.

Thanks for the info guys.  For less than 100 bucks the drive line shop will install the u-joints in the car for me.  Not having a lift of my own to use, it makes life so much easier.

He means the Imperial has more than one U-Joint.  It uses CV's like the Caderacks did.
 
The older Chryslers used a ball and trunion in the front.  Up to 64 there was a flange on the back of the trans.  That shaft had one joint on the back end.   They used that for years

Yes, beceause of the CVs, a typical Imperial uses four U-joints.
 
Thiose B&T units on the early cars, while expensive, served their purpose in a great way!  Even in a complete freeze-up, they will not allow a break on the front of the shaft.  If you've ever seen a car "pogo" on its drive shaft after a failed U-joint, you'd be glad to be driving with a B&T!

No, no, no!  If I'm driving and eating, it's either McDonalds or Jack-in-the-Box.  I never eat anything that might drop on me while driving.  Those two places make fairly ry burgers, so they're easy to eat! 
 
HAve any of you ever tried to eat a TAco Bell taco while driving?  Yeouch!

You've never seen my idea of a BLT.  It's bread, L, T, mayo, and a whole package of bacon....

it that's the way you like them, then you need to go to John's Burgers on F St.    most places put 1 or 2 strips of bacon on there, but these maniacs put about a 1/2 pound on it......dang it's good !

Lettuce?.......that's a vegetable Snotty, you might die!........I took a computer tech who was visiting to John's because he said he liked BLTs.......I said wait till you try this one......he said that was the best he ever had because they put 5 times more bacon on it than most places
