I know this is probably a dumb question but, if you were to shorten your driveshaft an 1" then could you just cut the part that slide in the tranny down an inch? I seems like it would pretty much be the same thing but, that is why I wanted to get some opinions. I also wanted to know how low can you lay your car out without the driveshaft falling out of the tranny?

You dont want to cut down the yoke of your drive shaft that goes in the tranny cause it aint the part thats hittin its the outside of the yoke hittin on the back of your tranny so if you shorten your shaft your yoke will have more travel cause it will be hanging out another inch so it can travel into your tranny so you can lock up higher with out pushing on the back of your tranny. I hope that makes sense to you its kinda hard to explain :biggrin:

on the Impalas that have the 2 piece, you can cut the yoke and slide the carrier bearing forward, which in a sense shortens the back half.

OOPS My bad.

I neglected to state that I only did this because my slip yoke was 1/4-1/2 inch too small when locked.... I assumed you had a sip yoke.

Cutting the tranny yoke worked for me in this case.

Sorry all for the bad info.

Chris
