    Can someone measure the distance from the top of the rear output yolk. of their 205 to the bottom of the body. mines out so i cant take this measurement. im working on my driveline parking brake right now trying to finish it up. the rotor will mount with the same bolts as the driveshaft just for reference.

    thanks

    I'd measure mine for you but mine isn't in the "stock location" any more. I put a 4x4 on my jack and jacked my truck up by the floor to gain clearance for my e-brake /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    From the top of my 1350 rear NP205 yoke (u joint strap is the highest point) to the floor measures real close to 3.25 inches. I have newer poly body mounts with no body lift. Hope this helps /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Sure thing! What if you added a 1" body lift? That would give you approx 1.5" over what you have now with worn body mounts. Good luck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
