SPOA Drive lines.

Tim at NCO has been very helpful, says that for a SPOA with aftermarket springs for a lift over six inches drive lines become a problem.
So, how does everyone cope with this.
I can't buy KAD or SUMO drivelines. They are OUT of the question.
Is there an alternative method of sorting this?

90 hard top, Snorkel, K&N, 5:43 R&Ps, Locked rear, 2" body lift, Revolvers all round, OME springs, etc. etc. for a lift of 3" suspension, and 2" body.

Re: SPOA Drive lines.

I'm running the sumo shafts (CV rear) with my YJ s/r and spring over. I get some front drive line vibration above 30mph (rear should be installed next week).

I have heard of some people taking a front shaft and having it shortened for the rear on the larger lifts. Not sure what you can do for the front.

Re: SPOA Drive lines.

The rear axle can be shimmed to rotate the pinion so it points at the x-fer case (this is kinna a rig for what I've heard about drive line angles'n stuff. It works great for my zook with the 4.5"). Extended slip yokes would work (I think they are real bad if you run the S/R, especially for the front end). ummmmm, ahhhhhh, errrrr, yeah.. You can get a modified drive shaft for 200 on a few online vendors. You can spend 300 for a shaft kinna easy (cv, extended yokes, etc..). The guys @ arazona drivelines would help out lots, give'em a ring..
