I am looking at buying a parts rig, and will have an extra drivers side stub if I do...can you just run the driver side stub on the passenger side?
Brd , was that the only added dimensions you needed to run the driver shaft on the right? That is an eventual goal, so anything I do that can move me in that direction, I want to do. Fordem, that sounds like a Dodge issue on 6 speed transmissions in diesel pick ups. To get enough fluid in some of them to keep them from becoming a grenade, you filled with fluid to the top of the fill plug, then remove the shifter and add 2 more quarts.
seems like you could be compromising longevity by letting the pinion bearing be a little bit dry.
I was thinking of doing pretty much the exact thing you did BRD. I was probably going to use 1"x4" stock, primarily because I have a random stick of it laying around. I am probably buying a parts rig in the near future, so I will then have a spare set of control arms to play with. I have to drive the rig to work every day, so long term tear downs don't work out well. I need to then figure out what I need dimensionally out of the modification so I can use the left half shaft on the right...I also need to look at your front diff drop again...I am needing to drop mine, but I want to figure something out to drop the entire thing and keep it level...I don't like the idea of tipping the diff back...seems like you could be compromising longevity by letting the pinion bearing be a little bit dry.
