    this sucks, i went down to englewood driveline today and they told me the only way to make a c.v. slip shaft is w/a caddy slip (which we all know the splines are way too short on) who were you guys ordering that c.v. slip shft from for like $325? was that a caddy slip also? thx-j.c.

    I called Tom Woods some time ago and talked with them about driveshafts for K5's. He said the price was $325 and it was built with a used Cadillac slip joint.

    Just swap it out, that's what I'm doing. [​IMG]

    I've heard the caddy slip yoke works fine.

    People are using them, even Tom Woods will make you such a shaft.

    I used to love my 208 but this 205 is calling and it looks good!!!

    Did you ever talk to Jesse at HighAngle DL to see what he offers?

    I personally would go w/ the yoke kit, but sense I have a 208 and really don't care to go to the time or expense to try and get another tcase and out put shaft on the tranny I went w/ a Tom Wood's shaft... it is awsome. That slip yoke fits tighter then dog snot... no problems what so ever from the shaft.

    Jesse will not make slip yoke CVs. He just doesn't like doing it.

    Tom Woods will. If you need a CV and don't want to swap out your case right now, he's your man.

    I'm just swapping out my case.
