My Driveshaft Shop axles didn't need any adapters to attach to the RBT. Yours might be different. Or my RBT may have come with the adapters you speak of.Bill, thanks for the tip. Much appreciate all the help I get from you guys. Hoping to get some some adapters from RCR this week to attach these things to my ZF. So much to learn.....Rod
If I had a nickel for every "dumb question" I've asked over the last 78 years, I'd be a multi-millionaire.Oops, sorry guys. I just found the answer after realizing BOTH ends have slip joints. I originally said it was probably a dumb question....Rod
As with anything automotive, it's not that simple? If heim joints are utilized throughout the entire rear suspension, you can get pretty close because nothing is going to change outside of the suspension movement (and really small thermal expansions on the aluminum case/bearing retainer, axle?). Rubber or poly bushings would obviously require more clearance. I kept mine simple. I used axles with 3" long splines (common offroad aftermarket axle), and just allow the CVs to float. Have never had an issue with this, and clearance is about 1/2" (from the end of the axle, to the CV cup on the axle or trans). Also, remember that if you get them pretty close on clearance for street use, and then you want to track the car, and you increase the camber at the rear, and you do that with the upper lateral arm, it will decrease the CV clearance a little....depending on the geometry of the upright, and the amount of change between settings.Bill, how much end play should you look for? I’m getting ready to install the axles and this info would be helpful.
