    Jesse -

    Would you recommend grinding your 1350 CV shaft for extra clearence? I am at a point where it will bind if I flex at all.

    usually if the 1350 c/v binds like your saying we go with the 42 degree c/v - we can swap it out for ya- Jess

    will a 42 degree cv work with my 400/205 setup? Someone was saying that the trans pan was too big on the 400 and wont clear anything bigger than a 1310 cv. I hope thats not true because I need a shaft for the front of my rig and it has a good amount of front end travel. Thanks, sorry for the jack.

    Get rid of the expensive CV's and go with a superflex joint at the t-case end.
    Thats what I am going to do when i get my Stak in, there good to 42*.

    How much is this 42* CV and is it still 1350 joints and will it bolt up to your 1350 flange that is on my SYE on my 241 case?

    JUST the CV is around $500 last time I asked him, so for a full shaft im sure your looking at 1k.
    But it is 1410 joints.

    There aint no way in HELL i would ever pay any kind of price near $500.00 for just a CV portion of the driveshaft. Someone must have fell and bumped their head.

    Jesse,
    The 1350 c/v is about the biggest I can fit in there now with the atlas... There is no way the 42 degree c/v will fit...:confused:

    How about a 2 piece carrier bearing set-up? With a super flex in the mix, you should be fine. Depending on your travel you will have to put limmiting straps on.

    I had one of those superflex joints on my front pinion when I had my 10 bolt and that som-bich vibrated like it was coming apart if I was in 4wd above 20mph.

    Since I got my 60 I had to get a std. conversion joint and the vibs are gone.

    Just FYI

    Good input. Any idea of the angle you were running?

    I don't have my measurements any more, but it was the angle at ride height with 52's (~4.5" lift) It was a fairly low angle... I wanna say ~13*

    That third plane vibe is mentioned on the Tom Woods website...on the other hand they installed a pair of those joint on a Grand Cherokee rear shaft and didn't get any vibes until ~75 mph. The shaft angle was only 3 or 4 degrees though.

    I'd think for crawlin/wheelin it'd be fine, but for driving on snow packed roads at 20-35 mph it might be a problem.

    Those were my thoughts as well.

    I am going to grind on the HAD CV first. If that doesn't work, then the superflex joint is next.

    Time to break out the carbide bit and the die grinder...

    We actually have a non c/v set-up also its custom -that will get 41 degree's but have some vibs due to operating angles- if you choose to go with the flex joint you better buy two joints save one for a spare-As for cost these are expensive (if you want more then 30 degree's )with no vibs its pricy -if you wanted to try the flex joint be aware its going to vibrate without question and it will cost more then the joint itself because you have to buy yokes and grind some of your stuff- you will also in this situation have to lengthen the driveline and add a tube yoke- just tenetivly speaking around 300$ to swap your shaft around and add the flex joint - by the way i don't sell those- Jess
