Ya Ya I know! Dont say it.

Anyway I'm in the process of making my front square shaft and was wondering how you guys tied in the 2.5"stock.

Did you use a CV at the t/c?
or
Did use use a Toyota slip joint?

I have two CVs, but I'd like to go without one. this would move the upper part of the shaft back a few inches and help my pinion angle to some degree.

For the front half I squared off a Toy slip joint and slid it inside the 2" stock, then welded her up. Even if the weld does somehow break the slip willnot turn inside the stock.

And don't suggest a search, been there done that. I wanna hear your thoughts on this..

Thanx Tom

mine has no cv.
On the 2.5 side I welded the 2" side on then slid the 2.5" over and welded it up.
This way the 2.5 centers it self beter.
Email me if you have more ?'s

Mines Square, but she still likes it. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">
I'm going to use two IFS slip sides, they seem to have more angle to the U-joint. Just grind down the sides untill they fit tight in the 2" side, and then finish like Overeasy did. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I've got the pre 85 cv joint on my front shaft.I just made sure its cut square and lined it up.Make sure they're in phase or you'll get bindage.

I used the CV with mine. With dual tcases , I didn't really have an drive angle problem.

I used a mill to flatten and square the yokes. I also drilled some 1/2" holes in the square shaft where the yoke would be and welded that area too after slipping the yoke in. Mine works soooooo dang good, and is more balanced than my dinged up rear shaft...
