Question Front driveshaft DC conversion

is installing a front DII double cardan driveshaft on my NAS 110 as simple as swapping the LT230 front output flange with a DII and bolt it on, or is there more to it? Can't find anything conclusive that gets in the details.

I seem to recall that some DII shafts did not come with grease nipples. Could be wrong though.

tom woods will make you one for $380ish...

None of them came that way from the factory. I assume he is buying a rebuild.

What size is the flange bolt? Asking since I don't have any large sockets.

Talk about perfect timing, when I moved somehow I lost my front shaft. Worried about shelling out a grand for a new one. Are they titanium or something?

No, new ones are just silly expensive. Front d90 shafts are the same as front DI and 87-88 RRC shafts so used are cheap or you can swap the flange and put on a rebuild DII shaft with greasable nipples.

They had one on the diff end, not the gearbox end. You can rebuild them for < $60 in parts though.

I have a stock D1 you can have for $50. I'll rebuild it if you want for the cost of the 2 u-joints, about $26 for the two.
