    This is a picture of the cv joint I had installed on my driveshaft. It is from a 1970-1978 rear wheel drive Cadillac. I have not driven this yet since I am waiting on my RS9012s for the rear, but wanted to share the picture.
    The drawbacks I have came across so far are, the driveshaft length was reduced by about 3". The original maximum angle on the joint was about 12 degrees until I ground the tabs off, now the maximum operating angle is in the neighborhood of 30 degrees.
    To use this setup you have to have the large (turbo 400) output shaft from the transfer case. Although the smaller (turbo 350) yoke is available it is very difficult to locate. The pic is located here. Not sure why the markup did not work when I tried to use it.

    I only have 1.5" until it bottoms out. I installed new 4" springs and the ORD 4" shackle flip so I am thinking after the springs settle it will be about right.

    Did you use the original yoke or the one from the Caddy? What kind of problems were you running into with it being too short? Have you had any problems with this set-up?
