I have a 2001 GMC Sonoma 104Kmi. With ZQ8 sport suspension. 6 mo. Ago I had the double Cardan joins replaced and the rear cardan just failed again after 10K miles. Got ahold about having them replace the cardan joint and ballance the shaft. Local NAPA did it lat time, won't touch it now. After talking with Jim from DynoTech I asked him about the Driveshaft Alignment Kit from Jags
He said that maybe the only way to get the new Cardan joints to last more than 6 to 12mo. He said he just got out of a meeting with the Mfg. That made the drive shaft in my truck and they know that they are prone to failure and GM has discontinued the double cardan joint idea. The alarming thing was he said parts for this shaft are going to be discontinued shortly. Which mens custom made shafts from here on out, big $$.
So I'm hoping that the Driveshaft Alignment Kit from JTR will take care of the cardan joint failure problem. The vibration would only hit bad from 55 60 MPH but still ruined the cardan joint gues this is even worse with lowered trucks like mine.
