Hey maan! I read all the way to the last post. Unless I missed something, I noticed no one made mention of if your truck is a ???1500 or 2500 crew??? as the 1500 crew has a shorter bed and different rear end and drive shaft. This would be helpfull info so we know exactly what we are dealing with. ThanxTHIS ONLY APPLIES TO 2WD NBS CREW CABS
Not sure what all years this affects other then the 05+ but know it affects the 06 2wd crew cab. Well, just putting this out on the forum and not sure if its well known as im not as up on this as I use to be. But if you are adding a 4" or bigger block you HAVE to lengthen your drive shaft. It may need to be on 2" block but I doubt it. I installed a 3" coil & upper control arm kit along with a 4" spindle and 3" body for a buddy. Used 4" blocks in the back, and we noticed the shaft was short but didnt think it was toooo short. Anyways he slammed on his brakes at a light tonight and the shaft came out. Looks like it needs about 2" to be perfect. But I thought I would share this so it doesnt happen to anyone else...
Hit up Frank @ FTS for some offset blocks^ my question relates to abernaseballs post. I just installed a CST 4" spindle with a 3" block
The other day I noticed trans fluid under my truck when I was parked in the drive way. Now the pinion is damn near
Flat the drive shaft aims up towards the trans. Of I shimmed the rear end to point up a Lil bit would that stop the trans fluid from leaking out? I'm sure the shaft is pulled out to far causing the leak. Only happens when I'm parked in my driveway.
Any thoughts or ideas to solve my concern?
