    You can get a slip yoke CV setup, or convert to fixed yoke output and run one off of that. You are sort of talking about a carrier bearing, CV combo I think. Which would be too long for your short wheelbase setup I think.

    www.highangledriveline.com is a great place to get driveshafts.

    the cadillac c/v's do fit but the c/v's are not what i concider good for a couple reasons- the slip yoke is vented and will leak- okay weld the hole and hope it does not leak- and the c/v center kit is not good for more then 15 degree's in my opinion i quite building the 3r style c/v's about 7 years ago for 4 wd stuff because they sucked- and one more thing to think about the caddy slip yokes are not splined all the way down and should be in a 4 wd application with more travel- Jess
