    is there any benefits of putting 2 CVs on a driveline, kinda like what the caddilacs, the big caddilacs, have on their driveline.

    other than more expensive and more parts to break?
    could that be done with a fixed yoke, but using a expansion/compression thingy on there, or would it require a slip yoke?

    with the caddys they use a slip into the trans with a solid drive shaft, so it would be posible to do something like that, get a slip 205, a 208, 231, 241 etc. and you could have something rigged that would work, but i think its easier just to use one at the T/C and shim up the rear, but thoeretically the angles could be anything with two CVs since the CVs would cancel themselves and all vibration would disappear. My buick (69 riv) has a two piece shaft and two CVs on it goes Trans, shaft, carrier bearing, slipjoint, CV , shaft, Cv, rearend, so it might be possible to adapt parts like these so you could use a CV at each end with a slip joint in the middle of the shaft so you could use it with a fixed yoke T/C. But is all of this really worth it???
