cv and no sye

hey guys, eventually i want to get a sye and cv because i want to do a tummy tuck and a larger lift. however, that is not in my budget at the moment. what are the ups and downs of running a cv with no sye, if thats even possible? by the time this goes in i will have a 2" coil lift and will have temporarily dropped the tc (untill i get a sye..or cv driveshaft??)

Not possible. One it would be two long without the sye. And two there is no way to attach it. Unless you have a rubi. Whole different story for the rubi

It actually is possible. There are driveshafts out there that add a double cardan joint but retain the slip yoke on the TC side of the double joint. Is it a good idea though? Not really. The double cardan to axle portion of a shaft setup that way gets so short that dealing with the angle can be a pain. Also doing the SYE, besides fitting the new driveshaft, shortens the TC (so lengthens the driveshaft) and strengtens the tailhousing/output of the TC.

Don't forget the control arms you'll need, as well.

I have the ability to spell correctly, it's just that the autocorrect on my iPad will not permit it.
