also got to work on the drive shafts ..

started with the front ... hung the original 95 shaft , and no way , to long + the CV would not bend enough . So I decided to compare .

angles are WAY different and rather then shortening the 95 shaft , i'll use the earlier The 83 shaft .

you can clearly see the differance . (not sure on the 84-88 shaft , dont have one)

so now to line things up .
front flange works (of course , diff side) but the rear (transfer side) has the 10MM studs .. with just a few measurements , I found you could knock out the flange studs . and using the 79-83 8MM drive shaft bolts , it'll line up . I was worried about the differance in the 10mm original , and the 8mm 79-83 .. but if you look at the flange/flange , there should be no movement .

so .. now FRONT DRIVE SHAFT ON . smile , I may have to lengthen , not sure yet .. but it's on smile
