Driveshaft loop

Just wondering if anyone knew where along the driveshaft a loop should be fitted? Does it go towards the front or towards the middle? Would anyone have any pics of one fitted?

Cheers!

Re: Driveshaft loop

towards the front more then the back, the fact is a driveshat into the ground will catapult you in the air if it hits wrong, a driveshaft dragging on the ground will just bounce around and make alot of noise.

Re: Driveshaft loop

TIKFD6, I have this recurring problem that when people post picture links I can't see them in their message body. Doesn't happen all the time, but enough to be frustating.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: Driveshaft loop

Hope they can be of help, i got my loop off Ebay, for $35, it had to be modified a little to fit, but it all went in well, the bottom 1/2 of the loop itself is Bolted in, and teh top welded.
