    I heard the gen 2 is going to shorten up the adapter so that overall it is the same length as the 203.This means if you have a 203 now and put the Doubler in your shafts should work with no mods.Brady

    I have a 205 now, behind a turbo 350. How much longer is the current doubler, and how much should the new one be, total?

    What if we want the extra length of the Gen 1 doubler??? I mean, I have a 12" lift and desperatly NEED front driveshaft length (this is in a Suburban). Now what do I do??? Maybe hang a divorced 205 under there and forget the doubler....hmmmm......

    Ken, the current doubler moves the output face for the front shaft even further back than stock. I think yer gonna have to grit yer teeth and spring for a longer front shaft.

    I mean, I need the length so as to decrease the front driveshaft angle. Oh yeah, I could purchase the $750 80 degree angle CV shaft, but why? That's alotta folding stuff!!!

    Ken, don't worry, the first style Doubler uses stock adapters and ORD will still be able to set you up. I got my Doubler for my sub for just the same reason you were talking about...a longer front driveshaft. I even run a manual with a 8" lift and the front driveshaft was my weak link but not anymore. In fact, the Doubler improved the angle so much I don't have to use a CV joint.
