    hello all,
    I am at a complete loss. I have a 1982 K10 single cab long bed trying to put front drive shaft in after a 4” pro comp suspension lift. The rear end of the front driveshaft bolts up against the 4 bolt square pattern front yoke on the NP 208C diffential. The double joint part of the Drive shaft hits the top of the transmission crossmember and I am unable to bolt it up and attach the ujoints with the straps at the front differential. Can someone please tell me what to do to make it work? Thanks guys
