    High angle driveline. I did the 1ton fixed yoke cv. Save yourpennies cause you will need them for this shaft but it solved all my problems and if I knew the end result I would have bouught it years ago and even paid more cash for it. This is the last shaft I will ever need to buy for this truck. Just do it!!! You will be happy. You can also get a smaller cv and save some cash but why???

    I went with Tom Wood's myself. I needed a slip yoke shaft which jess wasn'tthrilled about making, plus Tom has been making shafts for my race cars for quite a few years. He makes an excellent product IMO. My CV shaft was made and shipped to my door for the sum of $325. (The free shipping is great [​IMG])

    How often do you need to grease the CV on your set up? The reason that I ask is that I've heard that the CV joint is not sealed and may need more maintenance than a standard CV.

    They are just like the front driveshafts on these trucks. Just BIGGER!!! Each individual joint should have a grease fitting on it. But Im not sure I haven't gotten it yet.

    I hope that is how it works out as this is the only reason that I haven't bought mine yet. I have a really crappy driveline angle and a BBC in front. U joints are a pain to be dealing with every 3-4 months. Please post a message about the seal when you get yours.

    Thanks

    The u-joints are greasable in the CV, but what about the centering ball between the two? Or doesn't it have one? Just curious because I did the fixed yoke conversion and looking for new shafts.
