The driveshaft is from a 79 ford bronco, just had it cut down and rebuilt. also had to use a conversion u joint.
the steering was not that bad, i was able to turn any where i wanted. the traction with being locked front and rear was awsome.

They dont ride that bad, it rides a little rougher than stock. For being leaf springs i think they flex really good.
