This Tom Woods custom drive shaft u joint will give you clearance so your driveline will not bind. Effectively gives 10 degrees more useful angle to your driveline. Only recommended on the Front driveline. If you have a Scout with a Spring Over (SOA) and 2-4" springs this is a great alternative to run on the front driveline right at the t-case. Offroad use only. Super Strong!
The unique design of off-set trunnions sets the mating yokes further apart than a more conventional joint. This allows for 10 degrees more flexibility than would be otherwise obtainable. While 10 degrees may not sound like a lot, with a 30" drive shaft, this will allow more than 5" of additional droop at your axle prior to binding of the universal joint. Our testing shows that installing this universal joint into standard yokes, the drive shaft will flex to 40 degrees. With a little grind work on the yokes the drive shaft will flex to 45 degrees.
Real world testing at the recent Supercrawl in Salt Lake City has proven this universal joint does what is supposed to do and is up the most demanding challenges. And of course it carries our famous “Gold Seal”TM warranty.
The "Super-Flex" universal joint was not designed to be a "cure all", but rather specifically to solve a binding problem that one may incur under situations such as full axle droop and spring wrap. Situations like a front drive shaft, where you have a lot of lift and have also installed buggy springs or revolver shackles in conjunction with your shackle reversal
