CJ Rear Drive Shaft

CJ Rear Drive Shaft

Background – ’85 CJ-7 that I just installed an RE 4.5” lift and added 35” tires. I also was smart enough to order a new Tom Woods Driveshaft (CV with double cardon from my Dana 300 TC to my Dana 30 rear) after the install. After installing the lift, I measured from nut to nut (not top of yoke to top of yoke) and measured 26.5”. It seemed long, but it was always the same. Well, I got the shaft in and went to install it tonight and whoa! It seems tight. I actually didn’t finish installing it to make sure it is not going on wrong. I can barely get it between the CV and the rear yoke when the shaft is fully compressed. Is that the way it is supposed to be or is it too long? Let me know!
