    I have a 85' blazer with a 208 t-case and I heard that you can get a double cardon driveshaft from a cadillac 400 turbo, has anyone done this? I want to be able to stick my t-case up above the frame rails to make a flat belly skid. Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    You "could" use it but the splines in the caddy slip yoke are realy short /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    When I ran a 208 I had a High Angle Drivline slip yoke CV shaft.The splines on it were twice as long as the caddys.

    yea I was just trying to get out of having to spend $400 bucks but I think it is probably the better thing to do. Ill just have to save up. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    How about just replace the splined end? I'm sure Jess could sell you that portion, though you'd need a 1330 (or is it 1310?) to 1350 u joint, but at least you'd be saving a few hundred until you absolutly HAVE to upgrade.
