    About to order driveshafts. Will a standard slip driveshaft from H.A.D. be enough or will I need the long travel one???? What are you guys running

    I got all my DL stuff from Tom Woods. I really liked his stuff and his tech service was great. Just give him a call 1-877-4x-shaft

    As for your question with those springs I do not think you will have enough flex to need the longer travel slip.

    Jess should be able to fix you up the best. He can talk with you about how you wheel and can determine whether you need an extended slip.. More than likely you wont... But support a CK5 supporter and call Jess!
