    You want a cv shaft or you will chew up ujoints in a hurry. The max angle on any ujoint is about 10 degrees.More angle = less life on joint. My total driveshaft angle is 21degrees but with a cv the two top joints share the angle at 10 degrees each and the diff side one is at zero which is even better. Use an angle finder and tell me what angle you have on rear shaft... Don't have an Angle find well go get one

    Here's the kind you want

    Angle finder tool for roof pitch or for finding angles of anything

    A cv driveshaft? why? ive read on the RCV site that they are pretty stout. just never gave it much thought to swap

    I made my own bracket because I can clock the bracket to any position I need which is key to get the bleeder screw vertical to be able to properly bleed all the air out of caliper. You'll want a cv driveshaft as well. best to do it before so you can set the caliper positoin to the axle after its rotated up for a cv shaft

    im doing the swap from drums to disk brakes on my d60 rear. you said you built your own brackets and that doing so was probaly better bc of your lift. I have 8" lift what does that matter or effect on my swap? will buying just stock brackets work? thanks
