I just finished putting a 4 inch suspension lift, a T-19 tranny and a 1 inch body lift in order to lift the tranny off the ground for clearance. I built my own crossmember in order to get the tranny snuggled up to the body. Oh...this is on a 74 cj-5. After getting all of this done, I hop in and when I got going about 20 mph I thought my teeth were going to rattle out. I assume it is the angle of my rear drive line. I called a mechanic to get some prices on CV joints or even finding a donor with a CV and he said since the drive line is "in line" I could not use a CV joint. Is what he is saying true and if so how do I and what do I do to correct the vibration problem?
