    did you have drive line vibes? Shims? If so what degree did you go to, the 83' had the 4 speed/208 combo and 10 bolts.

    Thanks,

    I have the shackle flip and I am getting some Vibe. I dropped the Tcase down and had my drivelines lengthened so now I am wondering what degree shims I will need. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    No shims or vibes. I do have the CVC in the back though. The angle worked out well with just lowering the rear of the spring.

    Because when I apply throttle I can feel a slight vibration. And if it is all quiet and no radio it sounds like a bass tube inside the truck?

    The best combination I have found is 6.5 degrees down on the rear pinion and about a 1.25" T-Case drop. This is still pushing the limits of a stock length 2 U-joint shaft. My U-joints are both at about 13 degrees. I still get slight vibrations sometimes (my wife can not notice it), but I have tried several combination and this is the best I can get it without a slip yoke eliminator or CV shaft. My U-joints are lasting forever, too.

    I had vibes BAD and then dropped the t case and they went away. Have done some power adders (duals, intake, tossed the ac) and now under some acceleration from a dead stop, I get a little vibe, but it quickly subsides. Pinion angle is perfect for a CV.
