So I installed all-pro's drive shaft extension on my front driveline.
Up front I've gone to 44044s and cross over steering.

Current problem is that the driveshaft binds at the transfer case. My pinion angle is good on the differential end (I've rotated the axle). After taking a careful look at it, the ball joint in between the U-joints is the spot that is limiting my deflection angle.

Short of going to a dual-case setup and creating a better angle, what can I do to the driveshaft to increase the allowed deflection angle at the transfer case? I'd really like to have 4wd again!

I think the early '80s front CV joints had less angle capability than the later ones ('84-'85). You could swap in one of those or try clearancing the inside of your CV:

Or swap in a u-joint for the CV on the top end of the shaft.

Did it.. replaced all the u-joints too.
Thanks for the link. The center bearing in my cardan joint is @#[email protected]#$'d beyond repair.. Man, you've got to really search for that part.. NAPA has 'em though, about $44. Without that bearing, or with it in bad repair you're going to bind.
