I did something similar, but forgot to rotate the shaft while checking that the CV and driveshaft would articulate enough to accept full droop. The result was an assembly that would only accept full droop if not rotating! I had to restrict suspension travel by shortening the damper rods.

Hi Shaun,
Can you give us a little more information on the cv and drive shaft options you have chosen? The adapter plates - what were they turned in and how thick are they? Also what dimension did you end up with for the shaft?
I'm considering doing this myself so any info you can give us would be gratefully received.
