My T bucket has driveline vibrations. Turns out my rear-end pinion is off-center to the right (3") that it's causing driveshaft harmonics. I forgot about the offset when I built it. I am running an early 90's Ford Explorer 8.8" rear axle. I did some research and found that it "may" be possible to have the "long side" (left) of my axle-tube shortened by 3" and then just use two stock Explorer "short side" axle shafts. This almost sounds too good to be true. Anyone ever done it or seen it done? [/B][/FONT] P.S. The rear wheels are centered in comparison to the frame rails in my rod... The pumpkin and pinion are both offset in the original Explorer so the drive-shaft would clear the fuel tank. My driveshaft is about 20 inches long; this offset is too much for the u-joints. I am not sure yet if I have 28 or 31 spline axle shafts. I want the pinion centered and don't mind having the pumpkin off-center. I can't afford a Ford 9" axle. Thanks!
