Front driveshaft lengths-90-93 longer?
« on: May 15, 2017, 09:58:00 AM »
Was wondering if anyone knows if the front driveshaft on a 90-93 is any longer than the earlier models.  I thought I did this on my 84 years ago to make up for 4" lift.  All those splines showing on my 89 make me nervous...

     The  front drive shaft on trucks with overdrive are longer than trucks with no overdrive by the added length of the overdrive unit.

    The OD (auto) front shaft is like 6" longer.

    If you want a shaft that's just a bit longer, check out a 2ndgen shaft. Thats what I'm running with ~4" lift.

    Yup... the current front shaft in my '93 W250 is from a '95 Ram 3500 cummins w/5spd.

    EDIT: Hold on... I thought this was for an '89 cummins truck. Is this the '89 RC in your sig?

    OK... scratch my suggestion.  :-\

    There is a 1" driveshaft spacer puck...

    I picked one up to fine tune the shaft length in my '90 RC, but I haven't installed it yet.
