16. With the flexy droop of the front axle, it was time to get a front shaft capable of a good joint working angle. J.E. Reel Drive Line Specialists built this CV-jointed driveshaft. It uses a flange to mate to the Nissan transfer-case output and a 1310 U-joint on the other end to bolt up to the Dana 44 pinion. Long-travel splines were incorporated as well to accommodate the pinion falling down and away from the transfer case under droop conditions. Note that it's generally a good idea to order the driveshaft once the axle is mounted and some real-world dimensions can be checked.
