    Do you think a -2.35in difference in tranny length will cause a problem with the driveshafts if we switched from a t5 to a t176?

    The t176 being 12.9in long and the t5 being 15.25in long?

    I think our driveshafts will be fine. I think they had quite a bit of travel.

    Only way to know for sure is to flex out the suspension with it installed and mark it and then pull the drive shaft apart and see what ya got left for engagment.

    I wish I would have measured our existing setup before we took the old one out, but didn't think we would possibly be switching to a different transmission. I think we will have enough spline length to work with the -2.25in shorter t176, if we find one.

    Make sure your front shaft will not bottom out since the Tcase will be closer to the front axle. I have seen that happen and it is not pretty.

    Yeah, that wouldn't be good. I'm trying to figure out how to get measurements since we already removed our T5....

    Made a deal with a guy on a t176 yesterday and he sold it out from under me before our scheduled pick up time.

    Back to the seach for a t176.
