    Does any one know what the stock clearance on a rear slip yoke is. I have 1-1/2 inches between the rear housing of my t-case and my driveline yoke. I'm not sure thats enough clearance under full compression and I think it's less than factory, but I'm not sure. I can test the length under droop, but not under compression.

    Thats about right. Mine is 1 1/2 or damn near it.

    When in doubt.....Use the Saws-all[​IMG]

    I've never measured it, but I've been looking at the leaky-a$$ thing enough lately to say mine is exposed no more than 2". Stock (worn-out) suspension '87 K5, 31" spare in back, top on, 50lbs of tools, fluids & parts in back, 1/2 tank of gas. With these conditions, I have about 1 1/2" clearance between the bumpstops and the axle tubes. Hope this helps...

    If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style...
