How much spline is left inside the outter housing? Make sure theres around an inch or the outter will split under torque.

the square stock will start to collapse unless sleeved and your bolts will continually come loose

it's safe as long as you keep it in your front yard...

Yeah I agree - at very least get a sleeve for the bolts inside the square tube.

[iagree]
My first truck was an '84 Toy that the previous owner had lifted, etc.. Here's his genious solution to driveshaft lengthening:

Just tack together a couple pieces of flat stock![2e]

As it was my first truck and I was a total n00b, I didn't know any better and thought nothing of it...wheeled lots and it managed to stay on. But knowing what I do now, theres no way I'd keep that garbage on my rig.

Even the flat stock is better than the tube.

Please try again before that shit comes apart on the highway.

anyone who has there hubs locked on the highway is moron to begin with.

the tube is a bad idea... but i dont see anything wrong with the flat bar. hows that any worse then the aluminum spacers that they sell?


if you are running just a single stock t case, get the rear half of a two peice driveshaft.... like the one i had on my 84 extra cab, take it to a driveline place and get it shortnened. cost me $30

but do it right........get a square shaft..... its way stronger , allows for more flex etc
