Re: home made long travel front shaft
It sounds to simple, and that always scares me.
It should work though, provided you dont bugger up one side of the shaft on a rock lathe. I would fear that I would damge one side causing it to slip less readily than the other and the springs would not be enough to ballance them. I am brutal on front drive shafts in the rocks, I paint them before runs so I can see how bad I place them on rocks durring the day, They usually look like a barber poll after the first obstacle. I dont have any problems sepARATting, my front 10" slip slpine with my set up. It does seem like a very plausible design though,... just do it. Ill be there in the spring to tow you out of the tough spots if/when it fails(big grin).
If at 1st you dont succeed, your replacement will try and try again
