custom CV drive shaft.

For EJS this year, I want to do a Teraflex tummy tuck with an Extreme short shaft SYE. I will also get Brown dog Engine mounts with 1" of lift.

Dennis at teraflex told me to just get a custom drive shaft made instead of buying their pre made shafts because sometimes they still dont fit. So I stopped by at a local drive shaft and differential place down the street from my work. They said it would cost me $275 and would be done the same day to build one from scratch.

I look at more well known custom places outside of the state like woody etc. They tend to be slightly more expensive before shipping. Does $275 sound like a pretty solid price? I know they use all spicer products and when I explained I wanted to do a SYE and a Tummy tuck and needed a CV type drive shaft, they sounded very comfortable and already knew what they were going to do.

Seems about right. You could call gaylons in lehi or 6 states in Orem. They have helped me many times.

Also Tom woods drivelines is in utah, not out of state

Well now I just feel stupid. I will give these guys a shot and let you know how I like their work. Then it may give us city boys a place to go close by.

Ha no worries. I think tattons drivelines is more up your way and I've only heard good things so far about them. Braden had them make his lines if I recall correctly and we know he is not easy on them.

I have a Tatton's as well and it was $245 shipped. If you pick it up at their place, maybe they'll knock of ~$20 for shipping, saving you $50 over the other shop

My old DS was a woody... i didn't have any issues with it (but that was when i was running a 1310 and small tires (no offense to those with 35's and 37's )). I'm pretty sure mine is a Tattons (or Gaylon's)... i don't remember... Forged parts and 1350. I've killed one rear shaft (the double cardan housing twisted and the U joints inside died). Ever since i got my new one it has been fine (knock on wood). Be sure to grease the double cardan joint frequently. My rear shaft needed the flange mount grinded for clearance because i'm dealing with extreme angles and a short DS since my atlas 4 pushes everything back.

Do you feel that there is a benefit to having a CV over a Double Cardon?

Or should I ask..... What would you prefer? Why?

My guess is that you will end up going with a double cardan.

I had Tom woods make a high angle shaft for my Yj. That had a super short Sye , and a flat belly skid ( hung 1/2 below the frame rails ) I never had issues with it.
