Front driveshaft CV binding, would a 1410 be better?

    I have a 1310 flange style front out put on my 205. I had the driveshaft shop grind the CV for more flex but it still binds up pretty bad and will not allow full droop of the passenger side front.

    Would a regular 1410 U joint allow me more down travel?

    Get ahold of Jesse at High Angle Driveline ( http://www.highangledriveline.com/) and chat him up. I have his 1410 front CV driveshaft and it flexes quite well. However, it is a monster and takes up a lot of space. I have mine on a doubler setup.

    If you surch Mudzerwhateverhisnameis he's got a post, way back where he put a 1350 cv center section in the 1310 cv and he got some serious working angle.

    edit: I've got the same front shaft and DR. The thing is major beef.

    1410/1410 shaft will run at 29+ degrees without bind. Front shafts aren't fulltime high speed applications anyways so that's what I chose to run. If it isn't enough I'll run some Tom Woods superjoints at either end.

    Rene, do you run a CV or just a single 1410 on both ends?

    He is gonna run 1410s at both ends non CV on both shafts:D Something about equal length shafts and only needing 1 spare shaft/joint.

    That is the plan...I'll get some final driveline measurements pretty soon and see if that's going to be possible or not.

    Wow that HAD CV is bad ass, I don't think it would fit in my crossmember though. I had their 1350 CV on my old K5 and it was awesome too.

    Thanks for the info all.
