    well, as I was putting my project back together I noticed that the 14bolt end of my driveshaft is MAJOR gone ( looks as if it had a major rotating impact against the 14 bolt yoke on the axle housing. So.... I need to find a 3/4 driveshaft, rip off the rear yoke, and put it on my driveshaft - is there anyone local to me ( Santa Monica/Venice ) that could do this or are there other fab places you suggest?

    Don't know anybody close, but 4x4doctor (on Victory in Burbank) or Offroad Unlimited (ORU) also in Burbank (on Palm, I think), are both reputable shops. ORU is a bit pricey.

    You could try Cannon Engineering, They are in, i think, north Hollywood, they build a shaft for me a few years back, ran well till i forgot to service the cv centering ball, but they had new and used yokes available and the prices were decent, and the magazines have used them.

    Heres the info i found :
    Cannon Drive Shafts Inc
    10921 Chandler Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601

    well, I have had the 14 bolt on and in use for years, but was wondering if anyone has ever needed angled shims for the axle housing as I noticed alot of wear seemed to be from a bad driveline angle - the youke was making contact with the strap bolts on the axle yoke assy.

    I am using angled shims right now. My driveline was purty bad which caused some major vibes and I was going thru U-joints like crazy. I pointed the pinion straight towards the t-case, got a CV driveshft and said BUH BY vibes. It's as smooth as it was when I had no lift. But I'm not really comfortable with the shims there. They are the bolt on type, but I also have an 0-rate add-a-leaf from ORD bolted in so it looks kinda Mickey Moused. I'm going with new spring perches that already have the inch added to them and I can mount them at any angle I want.
