    85 4runner build the start

    changed my mind on my 85 4 runner now its getting 5" long travel springs all the way around rock sliders,hy-steer,ubolt flip, and the aussie lockers came in today lots of work to do. Now I need to find a good place to build my drive shaft any ideas?

    if u r using it on the road and can weld, buy the tube at a driveshaft shop (got mine at driveline one, was about $50) and just make your own--i assume u have the ends of the shaft and just need different length
    they're not much fun to get apart at home, but can be done. press the ends into the new tube, but not quite until it bottoms, then bolt into the truck and spin it while having a dial indicator on it and tap the ends until u get a good reading--the closest i could get mine was about 0.007" which i thought would be too much, but i haven't noticed any vibes...
    if off-road use only, i've read about some people just using a piece of square tubing inside another piece, welded to the ends....just some ideas
