Question 1990 Ramcharger Driveshaft Problem

I lifted my Ramcharger 5 inches which put the rear driveshaft in a bind where it attaches to the fixed yoke on the transfer case. Is there a driveshaft out of another vehicle with a cv joint on it that will work for the rear driveshaft or is it simply better to put a cv joint on my existing driveshaft? or have a custom driveshaft built?

Don't understand why you are having the probem. Have 4 inches on my girlfriend's 90 RC and don't have a problem. Do get some bad vibrations though.

I would go with a CV shaft. That is what we are going to have to do on hers to get rid of the vibs.

I didn't have to grind those nubs down on the front driveshaft till I had about 7 inches of lift on my 79

The front drive shaft depends on what trans&transfer case your running mine had a had the coupled trans&tranfer which brings it closer to the front and I believe a 90 is same. and the back you could just use degree shims on rear to correct angle under 20 $ at auto zone and chevy shims work fine to
