Jim/Dennis,
Are you guys going right from a slip yoke on the motor drive shaft to the U-
Joint on the rear-end? Or do you have an intermediate carrier bearing in
the driveline?

The motor shaft and the pinion shaft _must_ be parallel when
you are driving the car. They don't have to be coaxial, but they
_must_ be parallel within a couple of degrees. This is both
up-and-down as well as side-to-side.

Bingo Bill, you have the right answer, I thought you only knew how to make
bikes go fast, however one slight error. The two shaft centerlines should be
parallel ALL the time when viewed from the top and the side.

Hi Bill,The S10 has a coil over ladder rear fully adjustable suspension.With
all the excitement of driving this new truck maybe I missed the vibration but
I will listen more close next time down the track. Dennis Berube

Yes! that is why they use four bar equal length on the really hot cars.

If it is a four-link suspension, then you will be able to set it up
perfectly.

Only if the top view of the drive shaft geometry is correct.

Congratulations on some mighty quick runs. Most folks don't do nearly
as well, even after years of work on the car.
