      I made my own jeep style long arms (on my second version now) and they are working great.
      What driveshaft bind are you talking about, at the pinion or T-case?

      Originally I had a fairly steep driveshaft angle and I clearanced the d-shaft and it was never a problem. With my new set-up I lowered the front 1" and extended my arms (lowers) an 1" as well and it's made a world of difference. At full droop there's very little pinion change and I can turn the d-shaft with no binding anywhere.
      The amount of lift you run is key to reduce binding
      .
      The cardan or CV joint driveshafts are nothing special, just a Spicer 1310 CV which is also used in jeeps and dozens of other vehicles. If you found one from another vehicle, you could homebrew a new shaft and make to the length you need fairly easy

      Just Curious-can that front end be set up with locking hubs? My '84 B-II is pretty much stock except for Rancho shocks and slightly bigger tires,but works okay for what I do;I'd thought about a SAS,but so far I really can't bitch about the stock set up. I gotta have locking hubs though-just a personal "weirdness".
