    Well, my front D44 is bolted in... but, the driveshaft is just too short /forums/images/icons/mad.gif . Even after I dropped the T-case, it was still less than 1/8" too short. I know superlift made a spacer that pushed out the front flange of the t-case. I dunno what application this was for, but I have an NP208. Anyone know where I can get this spacer?

    I looked on NT&W's website.. but found nothing. I tried summit too, nothing. Any other places I can go? I wanna have this spacer by next week so I can test my truck out.

    4WPW part number 04310 $52.95. I made my own and unless you have a lathe it is kinda tuff to make one. Most machine shops will charge 1-1 1/2 hours to make one, my $.02= jsut buy the spacer /forums/images/icons/wink.gif Also lowering the T-case will slightly raise the front output but lower the rear so it doesn't help the front driveline at all (or so I'm told) /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Actually, dropping the case got the D shaft closer to the flange. I was surprised.. but it's still just a little short.. spacer time it is! thanks for the part #
