so ever since i bouht my 1998 Chevy s10 2wd, v6 , automatic
i've Always have had big problems with my driveshaft.
changed all u-joints and made a completly new socket sfor that CV-joint. well it was ok for this summer... now it's bad again.
sick and tired of that piece of sh*t DS .. so i really want to get rid of that split shaft or what they're called and go for a single shaft.
got many good suggestions about driveshafts from Sonoma, hombre etc..
well these trucks was never sold in Sweden so there is no parts for them to get here..
so i found this thread and ben Reading a bit but since most of you have lowered trucks i get quite confused... so i just want to se if i'm following this correctly.
a Chevy silverade 2500 alu. shaft will work on my Chevy s10 -98 ,v6 aut.
all i need is to shorten it and change the joint to the tranny?
small info about my truck: at the moment its stock ride height, planning om liftin it at least 2" in the rear and 3" spindles in front. i have steel DS (2piece)
want to get rid of most of the vibrations, noise (the klonking) and i need to be able to load it quite Heavy, max 881lb (400 kg) since i ride dirtbikes and such , almost Always loaded with something...
am i somewhere near what i thought i understood from this thread?
