Looking for drive members

Hi,

I'm looking for drive members that maybe an odd size. I need some that will fit a 1985 to 1987 110/90 front or rear hub but that will alow the half shafts to move 3/8 of an inch closer to diff. I'm putting an odd grouping of parts together and everything works exept that the half shafts are 3/8 shorter than what would be ideal. Anyone know if there is a maxidrive or other drive member out there that will do this? Thanks for any help.

When I converted my 91 Range Rover to 24 spline rear axles I had to use the Discovery stub axles and hubs to move the axle shafts inboard - that might work for you as well since the Disco stub axles are shorter.

I'm doing something a bit strange... I'm fitting military 110 front spindles and hubs to a disco rear axle casing in my project 90 so that I have some really good wheel bearings and common parts on all four corners. I need new drive members so that I can use my stock military 90 rear half shafts. Failing that I can use a 110 long side shaft and have a custom short side made up or I may modify some stock drive members or have some custom made. My goal is to have have disc brakes but without the suspect disco/NAS 90 hubs and wheel bearings. There are other ways to do this but I have all the parts on hand to do it less the drive members so it is worth a try.

What I have done is use the stock hub and bearings, removed the stub axle seal and run the wheel bearings in gear oil. If you change to an RTC3511 double lip hub seal you can do this. I am also running Maxi-Drive shafts and flanges. I have had no problems or leaks in over 40k miles.
