#2 constantly changing angles of the shafts:confused:
No, on the drive SHAFTS, at the T Case. I don't really think there is a good answer for this.

Thanks for the info 'Dad, I will start looking around for these elusive air discs. I'd like to see them

#1 as liliysdad said, yes.. air disks do exist, but are rare.

#2 kind of a good question, & I never really thought about it. on a permanant mount, it makes sense they could work out the angles & just run joints. Maybe there's a clearance issue that makes it easier to point the diff at a CV, or maybe it's just to ensure that there's not problems in the future. Maybe it's just habit from years of running CVs with solid axles. Who knows.

Some of the pusher motorhomes I work on have air disk front and rear. Also they mostly run a 22.5" wheel:eek:
With 40s the diffs would damn near drag. :flipoff2:

mostly for the new GM trucks with autotrac t-case's that are lifted. front shaft spins all the time so they use them to reduce the vibration at higher speeds.

Are we talking about double cardan CVs or the "birfield" kind used commonly on FWD axles??

If it´s the latter, then how do they keep the grease boot from grenading as a result of the high rotational speeds of the driveshaft??:confused:

I´ve seen a lot of guys try to use these type of CVs, but with no success...........
