    This was the stock driveshaft off of my 88 with 6" BDS front springs and an echobit flip with ORD add-a-leaves in the rear. I am currently running a 14bsf and it actually pushed the d-shaft in the t-case more. I ran the shaft for a while but the angle was too severe so I went to a CV slip. Here are the measurements:

    29 1/4" ctr u-joint to ctr u-joint
    37 1/2" end to end
    6" slip yoke

    Recently new slip yoke, upper spicer u-joint and lower conversion 1350 spicer u-joint are the specs.

    I can get a pic but it's going to have to wait until the weekend. It's at my house and I'm at school /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    What do you think about $65 shipped?

    Lemme know
    Thanks

    I'll go measure my current shaft...im also off at school, im going home today back to my truck so I'll measure and let you know.


    price seems kinda steep... how about 45 shipped??

    I sold my other shaft to jeff for ~40 shipped. And now realize i really should have a spare.

    Yeah I figured you would need to measure to be certain. Only reason I was asking that much was because the conversion u-joint was only run for at most 2wks and the slip is only about 4-5 months old. So the shaft is in really good shape. But I can sympathize with the "poor college student" because I'm in the same boat. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    How about $55 shipped, or maybe you have something I can use??

    Thanks

    $50 shipped is fine, unless you have a D44 passenger side knuckle drilled & tapped for crossover??

    PM me your addy and we can go from there.

    Thanks
