hey you seem to know a hell alot about 64s so see if you can answer this. i was thinking and if i made the slingshot arm but attached it to an added on frame addition at the same area as one of the universal joints the pivot of the frame and suspention would be the same. therefor there would be no need for a slipped shaft. would this work?

not really sure how you mean but no, it would not work, you'll need a slipshaft...

hey badass 64, i am getting a driveshaft made and was told to use a slip unit from a chevy 4x4. you are saying that you need 12" of slip but these only supply 4". will that still work with 14's?
:biggrin:
you would prolly need more play than that.
