I have some crazy vibrations up there as speeds increase and I think it is due to the fact that the front pinion points straight at the t-case.... which i don't want to change since i have my caster where i want it. so... I think that instead of using the CV style shaft in the rear like I was thinking, I need to just get my pinion angle right in the back, and actually use the cv shaft in the front. Kinda the opposite of what I wanted to do in the first place.
Sounds right. I just converted the front on my 80 to a DC shaft using a Taco shaft, which for the 80 is bolt on once you have it retubed.

i just lifted the front of the motor an inch to relieve some interference issues and in effect changed my output flange angles... well, now the vibration in the back is much better, like night and day different. still vibrates up near 80 but now i know that with a little more tweaking of the rear pinion flange i can get it right! fun stuff. the lead i had on the DC shaft looks like it may have dried up... so a taco shaft might be what i get. Bill, where did you say to get one from?
