So, I was thinking about something the other day also in the same area. If we replace the cv coupling pin once a month, why don't they make the dog bone side replaceable also with a set screw? I have the tools to remove the pressed in pins, but a recent try on some associated pins was ruthless. Now I see why the out-drives wear more on associateds than the dog bone pins. Next time on the associated I will just buy a new shaft because after the bone saver and the hudy pin removal tools, neither of them would move it.

You have me a bit confused; do you offer some sort of universal sliding shaft?

After reading many of the posts, i'm gonna have to agree with what many people said.
That being, even if you made the joint dual pivoting, there is still 4 tiny areas that if stressed too much would cause the joint to break or in the case of titanium bend it.
