    I have a 71 K20.....the slip joint in the middle of the shaft is "sloppy". Is there any fix for it other than taking it to be rebuilt????

    You basically need to rebuild it at that point. Its just worn out and getting ready to start slipping on you.

    you could goto the junk yard and pick up another not-so-sloppy shaft /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.
