One piece driveshaft????

I had my two piece driveshaft replaced with a one piece. I had my truck lifted 6.5" and they could not get the vibration at take off to stop. I was told a one piece driveshaft would fix the problem,so I did it,and this fixed the vibration.Just wanted to know if anybody has had any problems after doing a one piece driveshaft?

why really do they use 2 piece driveshafts? Life would be so much easier if it was just one, even if it was 9ft long.

is your truck lifted with springs or blocks in the rear??

What you need to look at is the agles of the ujoints on the front and rear of the shaft. If I remember correctly they should be very close to the same angle. you may have to use some wedge shims on the rear axle to get the angles correct and that should get rid of it. I had to do this on an old jeep. lifts are designed around the 2 piece shaft and only correct for those angle and even then some do better then others. but hey this is just my 2 cents.

hope this helps

They would go inbetween the axle and block. If you have a flat block you could look for one that has an agle built into it as well.

Here is a link to the shims Driveline Alignment Shim Kit

and a pic of where they go

I have a 6.5" lift also. The center carrier bearing was shimmed down at the time of the lift (previous owner) and was not a problem until I added a TW chip. The new HP showed up several weaknesses in the old girl. I found that my carrier bearing was worn - replaced that and still had a little chatter on take off. Made a couple of 3/16" shims yesterday and added them. The additional 3/8" has almost cleared up the problem. I can still feel a little vibration. It may be the U-joints?

My rear shaft is within 1 degree of being the same as the pionion shaft angle. The two shafts are within 2 degrees of each other now. It is hard to determine the angle between the output shaft of the transfer case and shaft.
