    I called high angle drive line to get new driveshafts and he told me that the 100 series has a strange output pattern on the rear of the transfercase. Has anyone replaced a driveshaft if so who did you use? Or what was the "special" part needed on the rear of the TC?

    Thanks,
    Ryan.

    Thanks I don't want to bother either Slee or Dan at work, since I may or may not be buying from them depending on the outcome. I guess I will just wait until they stroll in here and see my post.

    Thanks,
    Ryan.

    So I was thinking...

    Why do you need new driveshafts?

    You might try buying a used 100 shaft from a salvage yard and then have it re-worked to fit your application. You should able to track down one pretty cheap.

    By the way, I love the build-up of your 55, that is going to be really sweet when it's done!

    Greg B,

    Thanks. I will try to find a used 100 shaft, if I can't find the CV? end that I need to mate up to the 100 TC.

    Thanks for the encouragement on the 55 build at times it seems like it will never end :)

    Ryan.

    I agree with Greg. Check the internet for wreckers, I've seen a bunch of 100's and LX470's and some good used driveshafts are just a phone call away.

    Do the 100 and 80 series axles share the same pinion bolt spacing? To make the 100 shaft work I would think that it would have to be the same on both ends, or else the modifications could get expensive??? Just a guess.

    Ryan.
