These HEAVY DUTY wide angle prop shafts are custom made for us to our own specification, they are a very well made prop shaft using the very best of components we can source, they are fully greaseable including the slider, they are balanced to a very high standard and have proved to reduce vibrations on many Land Rovers.
- 30 degree wide angle (1310 series) to prevent the propshaft binding up on long travel suspension.
- Large 3 inch heavy duty 3mm wall tube.
- Higher torque capacity than a standard Land Rover propshaft.
- Heavy duty round flange face (not the old square type), that bolts onto the diff and gearbox 79.4mm PCD.
- Heavy duty 1310 series Universal Joints (81.8mm x 27mm) with nylon thrust washers and nylon/rubber seals, the nylon thrust washers also have 5 slots in them to allow grease to get to each cup when greasing them (see picture of joint you can see the 5 slots in the thrust washer).
- Rilsan coated spline for smother operation and helps eliminate vibrations.
- Upgraded involute spline configuration with 18 splines that is also GREASABLE which is a feature only found on our propshafts.
- Double seal arrangement on the slip assembly, with 110mm of movement and full spline contact on the male and female slider to help with long travel suspension.
- Internally plug welded to hold grease in the slider.
- Phased when required to reduce vibrations.
- All prop shafts come with a tube of k48 grease.
Please note that prop shaft UJ`s on lifted vehicles are under more strain and require REGULAR GREASING to prolong their life. No prop shaft should be run for long periods of time with a steeper running angle of more than 10 degrees, anything above this angle used for long journeys will cause the UJs to overheat and cause premature wear. This is always a problem on Land Rovers, especially with suspension lifts above 2 inches as once you lift the suspension the prop shaft angle steepens, even caster correction makes the prop shaft angle steeper.
