Put a 4 " Skyjacker lift , 4 springs, on my 1990 Ramcharger and my front driveshaft (CV) is binding on itself , I really don't want to go grinding on it , is there a correct way to fix this issue ?

Grinding it works really well. This is my W250's shaft when I was done with it. After more lift, I needed a longer shaft and went to a 2ndgen one... the spicer 1330CV already does that angle without grinding.

SuperLift driveshaft spacer = its for a Chevy but it the same thing as a dodge / also grinding IS the correct thing to do

Thanks for the info , I guess Ill take it apart and grind it , I should probably replace the ujoints anyway since I don't know how old they are , they seem tight but I've owned it for 15 years and have never changed them. Does the driveshaft spacer shorten the length of the driveshaft after lifting the Ramcharger and correct the angle to some extent?

Thanks Again

I have one of those Superlift spacers and the four extra long bolts if you are interested. It's just sitting in my parts cabinet taking up space. Cheap.

I used it after doing my 4 inch lift. But, pulled it off a few years later when I had the front driveshaft modified.

PM me if interested.

The most correct way would be to rotate the axle to match the new angle. But, that would require repositioning the spring perches (cut and weld) as well as the front steering components ("rotating the Cs") all of which are expensive and labor intensive compared to just grinding a little.

Right...I didn't disassemble mine either. Just ground them down.
