    I think when I got my shaft lengthened I got too much length put on. How far in can the slip yoke go on a 208 case before it starts to bind?

    <font color="green"> It can go in until it bottoms out. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Disco it from the axle and find out, shouldn't take more than 15 minutes... </font color>

    Unbolt it from the axle, put the TC in neutral and spin it by hand as you slide it in and out. When you can feel any extra resistance you found your limit. If you are close, remember to account for drivetrain movement, and extraordinary (like more that you think it can do) axle movement when beating your rig on the trail.
