High Angle CV Joint/Double Cardan??
I recently purchased a 1979 Chev 2500 with a '89 body. The truck has a 8" suspension lift and a 4" body lift, also 38" boggers. The front double cardan joint on the front driveshaft was broken so we rebuilt it, and when we put it in the driveshaft won't even turn. The ears on the CV joints are rounded off and the angle from the transfer case to the driveshaft is too high for the standard double cardan joint. Can I get a high angle CV joint or double cardan joint?? I don't want to turn the front differential up anymore as it is already at 11 degrees and the transfer case is tilted up also (7 degrees) to allow the rear driveshaft to have the standard U joints (18 degrees). The angle of the joint between the transfer case and the front driveshaft is 29 degrees.
So if anyone knows where I can get high angle CV joint or high angle double cardan joint please let me know!
