    #1: Who has done the swap and is running a sm465-np205 combo, I am worried about the driveshaft binding when flexing. I all ready have a HAD 1350CVto1410 shaft but it is allready close to binding with just 4" bds springs.

    #2: Where is everyone getting the corect bushings for the swap. Offroad Design wants $56 plus shipping for the set:eek1:, Thats sounds alittle high.

    A buddy of mine has 52's w/ his SM465/203/205 K30/Scout Hybrid and he got his drivelines from High Angle Driveline. He didn't get the 42* CV like I did, but he got a high end line from Jesse.

    so I guess it would be impossible to run 52's with the stock front driveshaft from my k20 burb that has a th400/np203?
    I've been contemplating this kind of swap. Would it be possible that I could just lengthen the front shaft? Or would I have to get a custom made one?
    thanks,
    James

    Check out DIY4X, Kert makes big thick washers that you can use with the stock 52" bushing to make the overall width correct. I got my rear shackles and washers from him, the stuff is first class and fit like a champ. Using this set up I have an off the shelf bushing that wont be hard to find in a pinch.
