CJ driveshaft angles

I was just wondering the easiest way to fit bad driveshaft angles on CJ-5s. I don't wanna use a transfer case lowering kit cause it would negate a suspension lift. I have a T-18 and AMC 20 if that helps any. Axles are stock 20, and 30.

Re: CJ driveshaft angles

put a rear cv shaft in and point the rear axle at the rear transfercase yoke minus 2 degrees

Re: CJ driveshaft angles

yes, but you will have to put a cv yoke on the back of your 20. And fix the pinion angle of your rear axle

Re: CJ driveshaft angles

One last question. When ordering the CV driveshaft do I just use the same length as the original driveshaft? And are CV yokes sold at places like Autozone or Napa? If not where bouts can I get a CV yoke. Appreciate all the help.
