If I recall correctly, the IFS front drive shaft is different from a solid axle's front driveshaft. But, I can't recall what the differences were. I'm looking for a replacement driveshaft for my '85 and the people responding to me either have IFS front drive shafts or they don't know.

The slip shaft on my '85 is shot thanks to NWOR's <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> handy dandy drive slip shaft boot (like a shock boot) that trapped in all the moisture, dirt and crud and let it get into the slip shaft.

Main difference is the angle capacity of the CV joint, otherwise I think they are similar as far as the slip yokes go. You can have a new slip yoke installed, one with more travel than the stock part. I had a local driveline shop re-do mine with 6-7" slip part. Or places like AllPro sell long travel slip kits.

I should probably ask the shop I got the quote from what it would be to upgrade to a longer slip shaft. Part of the problem of wear may be that there wasn't as much slip shaft contact due to the 3.5" suspension lift I have. The shop quoted me $200-$250 to replace the slip shaft with a stock length.

I have one of the AllPro http://www.allprooffroad.com/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=31 slip shaft kits. It works fine.
Since the time I bought it, Marlin http://www.marlincrawler.com/shaft.html has also put a kit in his line up.
If you have the tools needed (welder, grinder and a really big pipe cutter) it's not at all hard to do it yourself.
