    this weekend my front drive shaft stopped working. I can twist it where it extends, like the gears are stripped. I was thingking this was because the ancle to the t-case is too great and the shaft is too short to reach. Can I lower the case just by putting spacers betwwen the frame and crossmember, or are other things needed. Also where can I get a good replacement shaft in colorado?

    K5- because size DOES matter!

    lowering the tcase will actually hurt your front angle so that will be of no help. I have no clue what kinda setup you have on your truck... but if the shaft is short you could look into getting a 1" spacer from superlift for added driveshaft length and get another stock front shaft or just just get a nice one ton CV from Jess.
