Broke driveshaft, rrr No, wait, its not that. *update* OK, here's the update for those that are forum members. As if anyone cares lol. http://coloradok5.com/photos/showgallery.php/cat/500/ppuser/1569 Well, thats what I get for exercising my truck I guess. Made a couple of full throttle pulls in 1st gear to clean out everything, last time I got on it, sounded/felt like the rear 8.5" had let go. Nope, driveshaft twisted in half. Guess I just had too much traction on the pavement and not enough give, so the driveshaft gave. Lucky for me only half a block from the house, so not a big deal to get home. (besides I could have just unbolted the rear shaft and gone with 4wd) Anyways, now I'm at a crossroads where I probably need slapped for not paying attention. Any one best place to get a shaft built? Any particulars that make a stronger than stock shaft? Is shipping prohibitive enough on these that it's just as good to go local? I don't abuse this thing but on the street, so the only concern I guess is brute strength. Stock angles on everything, so thats not a concern. When I put the newer 465/205 in (1991 1 ton donor for the 205) I know the shaft will need to be 3" shorter than now, since the newer adapter is 3" longer. IIRC, the one ton 205 uses a larger u-joint than the 1/2 ton(?) 205 I have in there now...so I would need a driveshaft with the corresponding size joint. (no need to spend money for an adapter joint if its being built new) On top of that, at some point I will probably find the 8.5 to be the weak link, and at that time, a 14SF will likely find it's way in there. I can handle an adapter joint in the back in expectation of a better rear axle, so what size does the 14SF use? Same as...? Thanks for ideas/thoughts on this. I didn't expect to keep from breaking parts forever.
