I have been thinking about doing a hack and tap and running some type of double cardan ds. I'm not sure if this is possible or not. I also haven't been able to find a lot of info on np233 sye. Is there one or does a np231 sye work on the np233?
Iíve also been thinking about a slightly longer shaft that fits my slip yoke, maybe a truck shaft? Only reason for being longer is to compensate for the extra shaft I have exposed from the lift.
As for the leafs I have no idea where to even start. I like the flex the stock pack provided but it obviously they didnít hold up. I would like to find a set I can use the stock hangers with. I would also be interested in a set that provides about an inch more lift over a stock pack.
I have lots of ideas, but little time to decide on my options. Any suggestions?
I used the Novak Adapter for a 231 on electric shift 233.I had both T-cases just in case. They are identical. Also did not need any D/C on either shaft.
