Driveshaft

I have a 5 inch SPOA with a YJ conversion on 31's and am having some problems. The front driveshaft is hitting the crossmember and the U-joint is hitting a bind. I've shaved it down about as far as it can go and still binds. What do you guys with your extreme hights and driveshaft angles do to fix it? I also have bad vibrations accelerating in first and 2nd. None of this happened till i put the YJ's on. HELP!

Thanks for the info,
Stefan

I have a 1 inch spacer and the transfer end, and a 3/4th at the other. That helps. but it still binds and has terrible vibs.

Heres a new product I just finished up allows you to cut the stocm x-member out if you want $70.00 minus rubber t-case mounts if mounts needed additional $19.

Re: Driveshaft

That may help with the vibs, I'll think about it. But what about the problem with it binding, even after shaving it as far as possible?

Re: Driveshaft

Yes this will stop the bind on the x-member but the only way to get rid off shaft bind at the u-joints is to either clearence the u-joint or extend the front wheelbase, or get a shaft that has more deg. Like a rear yota shaft cut down.
