    How much will a divorced 205 help with driveline angles? Enough to look for one?
    I believe it would make the front better(longer) and the rear shorter. Just curious.

    Just keeping all options open.

    I just know that if you have one of those on a Blazer and some lift, your rear shaft angles are going to be very extreme.

    All the divorced case is going to do is sit away from the tranny and allow for a longer front shaft with better angles.
    The rear shaft, however, will be even shorter than the stock shaft. Almost too short that binding will occur. I'm not even sure if the shafts by Jess (High Angle Driveline) would be sufficient to help the angles for a set up like this.



    I'm not picking my nose...I'm just pointing at my brain!! [​IMG]

    This is about what I figured. The more I thought about it, the more I answered my own question.

    I have a divorced 205 that I plan to use in my Suburban (12" National springs). I think I can make it work with a long enough rear shaft, and long enough front shaft to where I don't have to spend $850 for an 80 degree front driveshaft. I will drop the 205 down a bit, and clock it also. Now if Steve at ORD would just come out with a rear yoke kit for a 203 range box, I would really be stylin'!!

    Divorce T-case will help

    We're running a 12" suspension lift plus a ton ton frame and have no rear drive line problems at all with 106.5 " wheelbase

    As said , drop the t-case.

    You have an extra driveshaft which is easier than changing the adaptor.

    We use to blow the adaptor with the mated t-case.

    All said and done, we run horsepower which will stress everything. If you're runing moderate power , you won't have a problem.
