This joint has been developed for RWD applications and high-speed propeller shaft joints. It is an 8 ball joint that has a best-in-class mass and package size for its torque rating. This joint has very low rotational lash and better high-speed operating properties than a standard cross-groove joint. It is an ideal choice when packaging space, mass and high performance are desired.
