    I just installed some 4" bds springs in the front of my k5(with ORD heavy duty shackles). My driveshaft is too short now...damn. Its almost all the way out of the yoke at ride height and the yoke won't come out any further. Does anyone know where I can get a longer driveshaft or have mine lengthened? Any tricks to this? Am I missing something here?

    because only pavement pounders do not fill out their profile.

    Southbay Driveline down here in San Jose is a great place. Great guy, stands by his work. usually 24-48 hr. turn around.

    South Bay Driveline...Ask for Steve

    thanks, i'll give him a ring. I'm wondering why I can't pull off the yoke...hmmm. I think I'm still missing something here.

    no..your missing lube. you need to lube your driveshafts each time you wheel, or each oil change.

    also, pull the front, lube the splines by hand to be uber-safe

    Unscrew the cap on the slip yoke and it will slide off then. The rubber will make it tight, but it will come off.
