Driveline angle



I have a 4inch Skyjacker Suspension lift and a 2 inch shackle lift.


How can I offset the driveline angle besides a transfer case lowering kit and or motor mount risers? Anyone.

And how do you work with the side offset of replacing a Dana 35 with a Ford 8.8 rear?

Basicly WTF do all these super jacked up jeeps do to reduce driveline stress?

You will need to add on what's called a Slip Yoke Elminator. This eliminates the factory slip yoke tail cone of the 231 and changes it to a fixed yoke setup that is much shorter. This will ad around 3 inches to your driveshaft length hence reducing the angle of the driveline. You will also have to replace your rear driveshaft with a CV style rear. The entire setup can be had for about 500 bucks from numerous internet vendors.

Also the offset in the diff of the 8.8 isn't enough to cause any problems when putting it under your rig.

CV stands for constant velocity. Basically when a normal U-joint on a driveshaft spins at an angle it speeds up and slows down causing serious vibrations. A CV style drive shaft eliminates this by putting a special kind of joint instead of the U joint. Very simply think of a ball in a cage with gears and a shaft into the ball and another out of the cage. It keeps the shaft speed constant no matter what angle. Hope this helps you understand heres a pic

Thanks, that looks pretty good. I think I am going to try the slip yoke eliminator first. It looks like I already have a t-case drop that came with my lift because I have the bushings btwn the skid plat and the frame, but correct me if I am wrong. I have a lot of continous driveline problems, especially throwing u-joints
