Clearance between Driveshaft and loop.

I finally managed to get my driveshaft loop bolted up, but it took some serious mods to the loop to get it to fit. Anyway side on between the driveshaft and the loop I have only about 1.5cm of clearance and am wondering if this is enough? Would the driveshaft be able to move sideways 1.5cms?

Cheers,

Re: Clearance between Driveshaft and loop.

The driveshaft should not move sideways at all, or it will vibrate then possibly whip lash and break.
As long as you have room underneath the driveshaft (alot more than 1.5cm), it will be fine.

Re: Clearance between Driveshaft and loop.

The only movement should be up and down as the rear axle follows the suspension. Jack the rear of the car up on the chassis so that the diff is hanging on it's shocks, then check the loop clearance. Due to the shape of the loop, you shouldn't have any problems, unless you've mounted the loop in the wrong position.
