I test fitted the front section of the driveshaft and its a 1″ too long. It clear only by a hair on the steering rack. It really looks like It didn’t but it does. I trimmed the shield from the dampener to help with clearance
Nope once I placed the bolts in. It made more space because everything came together rather then each piece separate. I now have 1/4 ” clearance.
I live in Canada so it a little far for you. But it looks like going to a axle shop and they can do this because of the cup. Yes this is a TT shaft
