I might as well change the pinion seal while Im down there but how hard is it to do them?.....Also, I was wanting to ge tthe conventional double cardan shaft from Toms (the one with 3 u-joints) and changing the yoke...would that be good for my application? Im never going higher than 3.5" of lift and their website says I can use that shaft....I also might be changing to a 242 soon so if I do will this shaft also work with the new 242 swapped for my now 249? Thanks Im a real noob when it comes to driveline stuff.
I had the same plan, but decided to go with a junk yard replacement/upgrade to the conventional u-joint. It wasnt hard to change the yoke, but i didnt change the pinion seal, not sure if that would have made it more difficult.
I decided to wait for for the custom drive shaft until I was completely done with the drive drive train. After a 249-231, axle swap, and maybe another 2 inches of lift for 6 inches total. All of which would change the drive shaft length, not to mention I did the swap for about 1/4 of the cost
