Ain't broke

My ideas have come around to the if it is not broke don't fix kind of thinking..as far as replacing a 2 piece drive with a one piece drive you may find the one piece to be so long and heavy that it eats u-joints..

I have one of the trucks with 2 piece and I am not clear as to why the carrier bearing needs to be relocated..now I can buy on having to modify the front section in some cases..Say after and engine and tranny swap and the tranny wound up being moved back..

Just my way of looking at this ..

Same situation here. The drive shaft fits but the yoke seems way to close to the transmission. After crawling under everything in the junk yard I've decided to have a shaft made/cut/lengthened to fit. Option 2 would be to shorten one of the two shafts an inch or so.

V-8 S-10's are fun to drive aren't they?

When I did my engine swap I purchased a set of rear end relocation plates. This allowed the rear to be moved back 1/2 inch and take the excess pressure of the yoke. About $30.00 from stealth conversions. And yes S-10 fan they sure are.
