Well, you've probably noticed by now that things look a little different around here. You are a keen observer!

The whole site is new and that includes all of the software that drives this forum. With probably over 10,000 settings and hundreds of back-end programs trying to talk to one another, there are bound to be a few glitches that we haven't discovered yet. So, if you happen to stumble upon anything that just doesn't seem right, give us a shout and we'll try to sort it out.

Thanks for using the VCOA Forum and enjoy the new look!

Anyone know if it is possible to convert a 122 2door to a single drive shaft? If so, what all is involved?

Thnks,

Tommy

Yes, possible, but much work and money involved.

The distance between the trans (or OD) output shaft and the diff flange changes constantly as the car traverses bumps and turns. That is why the existing shaft is two pieces with a slipping spline joining the front shaft to the back.

A single drive shaft would need to accommodate this distance change while smoothly transmitting the torque to the diff. Even if you moved the spline to one end of the one-piece shaft it (the spline) would need to be stabilized and designed to allow distance changes.

This reply is being made without a visit to google - rare for me.

Thanks George. Thought it might be a big deal. Was mostly curious.
