    Any idea how much spline contact you need on the drive shaft to a 241C transfer case? I lost about 1" in the slip yoke after installing a 14 Bolt Full Floater. I've got 2 3/4" spline contact when the truck sits loaded and 2 1/2" with the suspension fully extended. Should I have the drive shaft lengthened?

    Thanks,

    Torque wise, you have plenty of engagement, for alignment, you can never have too much but you're probably fine. Before you have that shaft worked on, I'd make sure you don't need a CV or something.

    Thanks. I should be fine as far as a CV is concerned, stock suspension, no lift and after about 2 hours of driving, no vibration. I won't be needing to do any work on the shaft, just keep the stock one as it is. I get to save a little money this time!
