Re: driveshaft loop question

If you run a larger driveshaft this one won't fit them. It wouldn't clear my 3.5" shaft during suspension travel. I bought the largest universal lake wood loop and ended up just cutting the ends off and rewelding them to match the floor pan angles.

Re: driveshaft loop question

The Lakewood loop will fit normally with an aftermarket torque arm. It's bolted through the floor so you need to remove the seats and pull the carpet up to properly attach it.

I stopped using the Lakewood loop years ago. It was easier to attach a universal loop off the transmission crossmember. I think all the newer aftermarket torque arms use this feature. My old Spohn torque arm didn't.

Well I didn't buy it with one for some damn reason. And I have a stock driveshaft size.

Lol well Spohn takes forever to send stuff and I'm in a time crunch unfortunately. I'll just get that one for now and mock it up if I need to

You've probably already ordered, but I have the Jegster loop on both of my Camaros with 3" DOM shafts. Fits fine.
