whitebuffalo shouldnt need new splines unless you have insane amount of flex. mine twists up pretty good and the xj shaft shortened worked fine. if it doesnt have enough travel, you'll need a custom shaft built.

to cut down my xj shaft it seems like it was around 50 bucks. i got both my shafts done at drive shaft shops.

jpdocdave yep, gotta be cut, rewelded properly and balanced. usually has to go to an actual drive shaft shop.

Lancem That's not a home job, look in the yellow pages under Automobile Machine shop service, give one of them a call and they'll be able to direct you to someone that can do the work.

Chopping down a XJ drive shaft...

Is shortening a front drive shaft out of a XJ something I could do? or do you need a machine shop? and if I cant do it, what kind of place do I need to take it to? Will new splines need cut into it?
