    anyone know where to get a driveline spacer to go between a NP208 and my front shaft? superlift makes one for about $55. Hoping to find one for cheaper.

    Thanks Ryan

    can you use this on a rear cv shaft? is this safe for the rear? what about strength?

    thanks

    i responded to his post letting him know you were interested...

    you're pry right about not being able to post cause you're not a member, but being you just saved $25 on that spacer, you could use it for a membership :)

    Sorry but the spacer had been spoken for. Why are you needing it? My front was hitting on the xmember so thats why i got it. But I put some washers in instead because the spacer was a PITA to get in. The bolt holes wouldnt line up right. Maybe try a new mount too. Let me know and I can probably get you a deal on a new one. My buddy works at 4 wheel parts.

    driveline to short, or maybe not enough travel?

    I did a 52" spring swap to the front and I lengthend the D-line an in or so. But at full droop and flex it falls apart (to short). I thought a spacer might be the way to go (cheaper). I dont really have much rub issues on the crossmember. I have taken the grinder to it though.
    your thoughts?

    thanks Ryan

    Man if you are separating youe shaft now a 1" spacer isn't going to cure that. Even if the shaft stays together at flex it'll only be by a hair. The problem that will result (when the suspension relaxes) will be binding in the slip yoke and it'll transfer that pressure to your t-case and likely break your t-case adaptor and or the top left part of your tranny housing (where it bolts to the adaptor) A cheap solution is a square front shaft or limit your travel.
