    I have a customer with a 95 yukon. he has installed a 6 inch lift. his rear driveshaft is too short. Has anyone found a stock oem driveshaft out of a truck or other vehicle that will fit and have enough spline to work properly.

    I'm guessing a shaft out of burb with a 241 t-case might work

    Its steel. And yes I know it would be better to have someone make a shaft. that is what I quoted him on... its the classic example of someone spending all their money on a lift and tires with no consideration to the other modifications neccissary for it to work.

    A 6" lift on that vehicle in my opinion needs a c/v - if your shaft is short don't think it will be good with the vibs because of the length alone- its an angle issue- Jess

    Ok, This kid has no money, I know a cv style shaft would work better. that is what I have on my truck....I am trying to help him out by finding an oe shaft that will work and allow him to drive it period. vibrations are not really a concern for him...he just needs to get to class.
