Default toyota drive shaft questions

i have a 5"SPOA lift, and 3" springs. and no whte driveshaft is makign a knocking sound. so im thinking about goign with toyota driveshafts. will they bolt right in with a few holes drilled into the flanges of the diff and t-case?
and if so, which year would be best?
i had to remove the front drive shaft, it wouldnt drop low enough to bolt to the diff.

RockRat builds the adapters you need. Here is the description from his website:

Rat Adapters
Adapt your 1979-1985 86-88 IFS Toy 4cylinder CV and non CV driveshafts to any 1986 and newer Samurai or Sidekick T-case flange. Adapters are CNC machined 1020CR to fit Factory spec. Hardware kit included.
Adapters are made to be Bore Centric, not Bolt Centric to elimate vibrations from being mounted out of round.
Each adapter has the samurai snout turned onto its face and has the Toyota Bore turned into the opposite side.
Adapters sold in pairs

Price: $84.00

Check out the adapters in the products section. xX ROCK 4X FABRICATION Xx

He is the only one that makes those, so you probably have a set. As for length... You are lifted 8" - although you may be a stock wheelbase, the driveshaft length needs to be longer because of the lift. You need to measure the distance from flange to flange (or spacer to spacer) while the vehicle is at rest and go from there. Start with the driveshafts listed in the paragraph above.

The best place to learn about driveshaft tech is from the master - Tom Woods. Check out his site and go to the 'Tech' section. He will teach you more in an hour than you ever needed to know.
