Driveshaft for LT230 ???

Lame post...I know.....I will delete it when I get an answer.

For those of you that have swapped a BW for a LT230 by how much did you shorten the shaft. The driveshaft shop wants me to somehow compress the suspension fully and measure the distance. Not sure on how to do that. Maybe find a cattle gaurd and winch the vehicle down???

Trying to get the DS shortened tomorrow and wanting to give them an amount to shorten it. I have heard two inches. I obviously have no problem getting the extended length.

Thanks Way

Well......since I am unemployed and sitting at home using up good air, I can crawl under my truck and measure it for yo. It'll cost you a .

OK, flange to flange is 24 11/16". This is with the ome med susp. I was also able to see that it is extended 1/2" from the stock length.

Adam:
I can measure the flange to flange on a '93 Rangie versus an '88 if this would help any. The 93 has the BW, the '88 the 230.

Range Rover Classic, SWB w/BW t-case, stock front driveshaft = 26 inches flange to flange
Discovery Series One w/LT-230 t-case, stock front driveshaft = 23.5 inches flange to flange

Sorry it took a few minutes. I had to kill 3 cockroaches and a spider getting back to the corner they were stacked in tonight.

The measurements I took were both driveshafts sitting next to each other on the garage floor. Both slip joints were fully compressed.

I thought he was just asking for the difference from the front driveshaft used with the LT-230 vs. BW.

That was the best way I could think of.

FWIW...
