    Hey all,
    I just put some Add a Leafs inmy blazer, And I see about a inch of splines showing at the front. Can I drive this slowly to a shop to get it lengthened or is it unsafe to drive?

    Thanks

    How much lift are we talking? Are you talking about the front drive shaft? If you just added the leaves and that its, don't worry about it. Those things have quite alot of length on there. Just take it off and have a look see if you want. There is also a little zirk (? I think thats what they are) on the middle of the shaft, give that a grease while you're thinking about it.

    Why not just remove it for the drive to the shop? Why take a chance?

    This is gonna sound kinda dumb but do you have the part-time conversion kit for you 75 or a partime case? Drive it in two wheel, lol. The front driveshaft doesn't move in two

    Sorry, I wasn't thinking when I posted. I should have included "if you have fixed yokes".
