I made one last summer cause my double slip was too short when I lifted it again and I was poor. Worked fine for low speed. I coated the inside of mine with the plastic/rubber tool dip and it is totally quiet. However, I will be replacing it with a long slip as soon as I get a final position on me front axle. I do have 19" of slip right now though

I made one run with mine, then called Jess the next day. I like the tool dip idea. Mine vibrated and made noise, but I was running about 40 mph in the snow..... kinda asking for it with all things considered. I've heard that if you run beads on the outside corners of the inner shaft, then grind them down for a tight fit into the outer shaft that they are less noisy.

i have them front and rear. the rear does vibrate and make noise when used at speed. when my atlas comes in i will build another round for the rear but i will keep the square shaft on the front. i really like how beefy the square ones are. i would keep it in the rear if it wasn't for the chatter.

I think that I bought 3 ft of each tube. It was around $40-50 total. However, I had a lot left over. (It's always good to have receiver tube lying around ) My front shaft before the latest axle move and 60 install was 34" at rest. I had 6" of compression and 13" of droup. I think that my new set up will more like 8"/11". Still plenty for me!

On the smaller inside section, I ground the yoke down on 4 sides until it would slip in (tightly). I also drilled the tube before inserting the yoke. Then, once I got the yoke in, I rosette welded it and also welded the end of the tube where the yoke met.

On the larger one, the yoke was way too small. So I used some 2" od 3/16" wall tube that I had and did the same thing as above to get it to fit. I then cut it down so that it was only as long as the yoke part that slide inside. Then I inserted this into the larger 2" ID tube and welded the ends and rosette welded also. Does this make sense? Let me know is you have any questions.

What about drilling and tapping a couple places along the length of it and fitting some zerks. Then you could keep it greased up so it did not vibe.

I made mine exactly the same way that scout dude described, with the exception of using 2x2x.25 instead of 3/16, very small difference.
