Re: Birfield driveshaft

Why would you want to run one of those, Birfields are a PITA and weak.

Re: Birfield driveshaft

I would much rather have a shaft that I could replace the joints in if it goes bad (U-joints). If you blow that birfield on the trail, how you going to fix it? I would get the Sumo front shaft from Asian Auto parts, it uses GM half ton u-joints, and it runs real smooth. Bet it is about the same price to boot. I run them in the front and rear of mine, and love em.
