    When I install my D60 front, will my front driveshaft have to be shorter? I'm hoping yes, since it's a little short as is, and it'd probably make up for it. What do you guys think?

    When I installed my 60 I moved it forward 1.5". My driveshaft with the 44 had about 1" of available slip left in it, when I tried to attach it to the 60 it was a bout 1" too short to reach the axle. Seems to me that the 60 is about the same as a 44. Sorry... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    If it's the same, that'd be fine. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif My current shaft is working out ok for right now. It seems a little on the short side with about 2" of the smaller section showing.
