I know the IFS shaft is junk but if I use a 79-85 shaft, is the only thing that I need to have done to it is to have more slip yoke added or does it need more tube legnth also????

Don't toss out that IFS shaft, you can still use it! For $280 Jess at High Angle can put a 10" slip spline in it, replace the tubing w/.095 and modify the CV so it gets the needed 30 degree angle.

The only solid axle drive shaft that would work is the 84 or 85. Stay away from the 79-83 shafts, they are much weaker. YOu will need to call jess for a price but it's a little less then the IFS shaft swap because the CV allready has the desired angle. You will still need to retube it and replace the slip spline.

Cna places that retube shafts usually add more slip spline? Or do you have to buy a new slip spline somewhere?

If they are any kind of D-Shaft place the will have or can get the long slip. I had mine made at Driveline Service of Sacramento. 84 CV and a Spicer 12" long slip for $275.00. If I were to do it all over I would make a square D-shaft, much cheaper (about $30.00 worth of steel) because all I do in 4 wheel drive is rockcrawl, no high speed driving.
