A new path to more flex?

Recommended Posts

Guest SOOBME

OK, from what Iv'e been told, the front stubs out of the trans are the same as the rear dif stubs. And the front outers are a CV, not a DOJ ( the inners are the DOJ in the front, right?) Soooo..... If U used the CV from the rear, and the CV from the front with a shaft that has a slip joint in it, U could have a higher degree of angel on the axle with out blowing the CV's. It's the DOJ that can't take the angel. And then just use 2 CV's in the back with a slip joint shaft. I'm not sure how much the shafts would cost to have made, or if somone here knows how to make them. But this would make for a little better flex on the trail.

Well....... I have 2 shafts that are 1 CV and 1 DOJ, I dont think that they are OEM.

And the CV's on them can flex A LOT more than the DOJ's. But who knows, I might have some off-brand re-build with the wrong joints on them too.8o

Datsun 240/280Z cars have slip joint axles. Maybe try infusing the 2.
