SRS and drive shaft seperating

I did a search on SRS and so alot of info concerning drive shaft seperation. I'm running a th400 and quadratrac and the front shaft is really long with a long slip spline, has anyone done a SR and had problems with this setup?

Re: SRS and drive shaft seperating

i have a tf 727.. almost as long as you.. with a slipyolk.. and yes, i pull mine apart everytime i wheel with it.. and it is fully collapsed normally. it really depends on how far your jeep flexes... i have the most trouble when both the front wheels are off the ground, it stretches the whole axle away and has just enough to pop, the driveshaft free. i also moved my front axle forward a ways.. try it, and if it comes apart... order the $250 driveshaft

Re: SRS and drive shaft seperating

With my SOA, and SRS, I even pull apart my Tom Woods long travel driveshaft, but it only happens when both front tires drop.

Thanks, Ray

Re: SRS and drive shaft seperating

I never could spell. Got fluent in spanish and it got even worse. Prof. said that I learned to spell everything the way it is pronounced. Cost me a fortune in beer to get all my papers proof read.

That is amazing, that you pulled apart your TW driveshaft. Did you have that ultralong travel shaft(the one that isn't ballanced, it has like 18" of travel)? Or did you get the long travel one that is ballanced(10" of travel)?

Re: SRS and drive shaft seperating

i have a similar setup as you, nick. i have a warrior products shackle reversal system and 4" lift with shackles 5" from bolt center to center. i moved my front axle forward an inch and got a new driveshaft made. i just got a longer version of the stock shaft made. i think it is 40" running length with about 1 1/2" of compression and the rest of the travel for extension. i haven't had any problems with the shaft yet either.
