    I have a 88k5, that is going through a tranny/transfercase swap sm465/np205. I also did a 57" ford spring conversion in the rear, with echobit shackle flip and lowering shackles. I used the longer side of the spring toward the front giving me a longer wheelbase. What would my D-shaft lenth have to be? Would a shortbed shaft work, due to lift and extended wheelbase?

    It is impossible for us to know what your driveshaft measurement is going to be. You will have to put it together, measure, and order shafts accordingly.

    There is only one place for driveshafts, High Angle Driveline. www.highangledriveline.com

    He sponsors my rig. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
