this made me chuckle. not at you, but with you. I can't count the number of times i was just short of getting a hammer to make something fit, but then simply turned it around and there was no issues what so ever.Geez. I gotta check that afterwork. I hope its something that easy. Thanks
he should not have to do anything to the cross member. the driveshaft just needs turned around is all. im running a 6" as are many others and dont have this issue.yes you have to drop the cross member. i have seen it done by cutting the crossmember on both sides of the driveshaft and building a drop U outta some angle or something and welding it back together. or you will have to find a drop crossmember bracket. i dont recommend flpping the shaft its not made to be that way.
