aod + clocking ring?

ok i am sure it has been covered butt this is 1 very specific question. and the search doesnt respond well to aod.

the setup cj7 5.0 aod d300 axles stock. will be going to lp44/9" soon
just gott the tranny in and as it looks i have 2 options as far as front driveshaft clearance issues

1 notch the pan

prob w option 1 is i will gain the clearance needed...? hopefully

2 clock the t-case

prob w option 2 is the conversion is smog legal and it does not look like there will be room for the cats if i clock it.already went to 2 cats instead of 4
also i know a clocking ring only adds about an inch butt rear d-shaft already is very short.

or will it solve the problem if i go with a hp44?

so basically if you have this setup or built one what did you do?

Shortening a rear DS 5/16" should be a non issue. Have you considered a two piece drive shaft for the front? Only you can determine your needs for what'll fit. Can you relocate the cat? You can pull the 6 bolts holding the 300 on, with t-case still resting in place, clock it with a jack/jackstands and see what things look like. If you order a ring, ultimatlely it can be returned less shipping charges if it does not work out.
Good luck,
Ken

Run single exhaust with the cat on the passengers side, then clock the t-case with go2guy's ring.

problem solved
