Is there anyone on the site who can lenghten my driveshaft.The lift thats on the Wagoneer has pulled the driveshaft apart 1.5-2 inches and at full flex the shaft will seperate. I need to get this done asap as I'm already driving my jeep to and from work but would really like to get it on the trail soon. Thanks guys [cheers]

it might be cheaper for you buy a longer driveshaft from PnP or scrounge one and have them shorten it (if yuo can find one of similar application). lengthening means they have to buy the metal new to redo the tube, but it should only cost $75-100 to shorten one.

just a thought, not sure if it's feasible for you.

:D

or weld a shd 40 pipe up and have them balance it for you?

Coast was very good to me.

Made me a custom d-shaft (actually made me two) that didnt end up working because of a vibration, refunded me all the $$ and didnt charge any labor to fix my old d-shaft.


You get what you pay for..

I got my bronco shafts done in chilliwack at a machine shop. Both front and rear legthened with new u joints needed was 253 or something, Havent had a problem

Front shaft got new slip joint..

Rear shaft was new tube, I put my 460 in and destroyed every single part in my drive shaft... So its brand new stuff.

If you don't drive everyday on the street just cut the the shaft right in the middle, pull it apart how ever muchy you need to lengthen it and slide a peace of shd 40 over top the length of the entire driveshaft and weld it on the ends. It will be straight enough and strong. I wouldn't do that if it was a daily driver. But for a trailer, weekend wheeler it works good.
