With the reoccurring carnage to our passenger side we began discussing with other IFS Chevy owners and mechanics and began to see a trend. Thus it was not surprising when we measured off the knuckle and found that the passenger-side halfshaft was stretched nearly 3/4 inch longer than the driver side. We looked over the mounting brackets for the axlehousing, but none of them are notched to allow movement side to side, so we deduced that we either need a spacer to shorten up the halfshaft, or an aftermarket halfshaft that will allow for more slip, so we're working on both. Plus we are looking into longer shafts to go into the passenger-side halfshaft and stronger CVs that will stand up to more throttle when fully turned.
