Re: SOA almost done - Need driveshafts
Here's a post by H8:

I dont run CV shafts either. I went through 3 of them in about 6 weeks, when I 1st installed the 5.0. The centering balls on the H bar would weaken within a week or so (just, street driving) and the CV joint start ratteling like a couple of skeletons screwing in a metal trash can. The 1st one came apart and destroyed the CV, after that I would install the spare, as soon as the noise started. I finaly had a spare built without a CV, and bought a non CV yoke, so that I could do a trail run and not worry about it. There was actually less vibration, so I decided to keep it on full time and see how well the non CV shaft would hold up. I have never looked back, and have not had a shaft fail since. I get no bad vibration either, even on the highway at 70mph.
