    So I got the shackle flip and when I accelerate hard and brake hard (only sometimes) I heard a loud shifting underneath my truck. Just out of curiosity would that be the shackle flip? Does anyone else have this happen? Should I worry? http://community.webshots.com/album/120867897qagiCH
    And I got my front driveline back so this weekend it will be time for some pics. It is way past due. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Some kind of binding/clearance issue in the driveshaft yoke perhaps?

    A picture would probably help a lot.

    Re: Shackle flip

    Ill take some pics at lunch today. I dont know if anything is binding. I had my drivelines lengthened and I dropped the T case. The angle on the rear driveline isnt bad at all and it was doing this when I didnt have the front driveline on. I checked the yoke after reading pauly383's post about his yolk. It all seems good?

    Pretty driveshaft. Are you going to correct that pinion angle in the rear?
