i havent try it without boot...but i am pretty sure that is what happen...
what years is the explorer you shorten the shaft...on how did you shorten it?

In all reality, you need to find a longer CV shaft. you could try putting spacers in another Ranger cv shaft, but i don't think you'll be able to get it long enough (that's what she said) So take some measurements and get you spline count and go Junkyard shopping.
