Pull apart the driveshaft's CV part (double cardan joint) and hog out the insides. It'll allow the joint to bend more. You'll see what I mean when you tear it apart.

why tear it apart when he can grind all the tabs that limit travel with it put together. My shaft was at so bad an angle it would not turn at all on level ground. I ground down the tabs with a grinder and used a dremmel with a small grinding bit to get the harder to reach stuff.
