Okay, heres the deal. I'm building a hopper w/ 24in. cylinders in the rear, mounted coil-over style. Its all in a '85 2dr. Chevy Caprice. Now I know everyone I talk to says I'm going to need a slip yoke. I know what it is but where can I get one or have one made? Also, how much are they running$$$???
If not, does anyone know where I could find some info. on fabing one?
Any & all help is appreciated. Thanks.

Any drive shaft shop should be able to do that for you also you may run into a problem with binding the U joints with cyliders that long you might need to get constant velocity U joint which means you will need to get a rear end that will accept one. those are some possibilities. George SRS

I asked a couple local drive shaft shops and they all didn't seem to have one that'd do what I need it to do. Then again, they probably kinda wanted to stray away from auto-hydraulics.
Who is "RICH" & where can I find him?

Your car already has a slipyoke, what you need is a slipyoke eliminator.

A slipyoke technically is the splined yoke to slides into the tailpiece of the transmission. It slips in and out of the tailpiece as the rear end travels, hence its name.

A slipyoke eliminator, has its slipspline in the middle of the driveshaft, not at the end. The reason being is that the tailpiece can only accomidate maybe a 2 inch slide. With the slipspline in the middle of the shaft, it can be made to accomidate a huge amount of travel.

I bought my driveshaft from arizona drivelines, it has a 18'' telescoping slipspline and a CV on the rear, paid $550 for it.
