Longfields will not work on the fulltime 4wheel drive. CV unlimited seems possible, but why are they so cheap? Used worth while is few and far between.

I have a headache from searching the web.
I was in the same boat as you Kevin. Lots of choices but none of them too appealing. As far as I know I am the first in the club to try these rebuilt birfs. I only have 100 miles of street use so far, but they are doing fine. After I get a couple more maintenance issues addressed I will be doing a shakedown run locally, probably Slaughterhouse or something. Then I will be bringing my 80 to CM2011 so that will be their first real test.

If you can wait a couple of months I should have some decent real time data to help in your evaluation.
