1310 vs 1350 is all about size. Your stock driveshafts will use 1310 u-joints; the 1350s are too big for your yokes.

Other than that the list you've already come up with, I can't think of anything...

It's in the rear right quarter panel where the jack is stored. About a foot of wiring between it and the taillight. Black rubber connector 1/2"x"1/2"x2".

The brake lights not lighting was traced to a wire issue in the right rear quarter panel. The...

30mm on mine. Some have used a 1 3/16" SAE socket, which is ever-so-slightly too big. I bought the 30mm just so that I'd have a nagging reminder to change the fluid now and again, sans excuses.

So I've done no new wiring, but now my brake lights won't work (though the signals do), and every time I push on the brake pedal the dash cluster clock turns off completely. What the heck is gong on?
