Moser 9" Stock Drive Shaft ?
I did a search, looked through about 50 threads and got some conflict... I just installed a Moser 9" learned and few things, have a few questions, I'm still waiting on my axles, hopefully tomorrow she'll be makeing a test drive.
Who's running a stock drive shaft with the P447 universal joint? How's it working for you?
Who opted for a longer/different Drive Shaft?
Who needed to use adjustable LCA's? It looks like the Moser 9" sits about 1/2" to the rear and that seems to pull the drive shaft about 3/8" out of the Transmission?
I'm useing a UMI TQ Arm that relocates to the tunnel, I have G2 LCA's... I don't mind buying adjustable LCA's if others recommend them, as I'm placeing an order for a Spohn sway bar and 9" brackets soon.

I've been running my stock aluminum drive shaft & moser rear, and still never had any problems ! Drag racing it for at least 8 years now !

I have the PST DS with the 9". I didn't notice the wheels sitting off-center in the wells, but I haven't physically measured it either. I have non-adj. BMR LCA's.
With the larger diameter DS, the fit is tight with the Torque Arm, but it does clear. No issues yet. Had it installed since last summer.
I THOUGHT there was about a 1/2" length difference when going to the 9" from the 10 bolt.

Here's an update, the rear is sitting about 5/8" to the rear of the car, not quite 3" between the front fender and the tire, not quite 1-3/4" space in the rear, the drive shaft is sitting about 3/8" to the rear. The suspension may compress a little, she's about 1" higher than she sat with the 10 bolt.
I'm going to get Double Adjustable LCA's... wish i was a math wizard like I used to be, bringing the rear end forward that 5/8" should push the Drive Shaft back forward the 3/8" were it was with the 10 bolt.
Currently running no sway bar isn't noticeable with LCA's and the UMI TQ Arm, a 1" sway bar is going on order as well, don't intend to take off that fast in the mean time, so far it's not noticable.
I apreciate the responses, seeing bills98ta standing the wheels up with a stock drive shaft is reensureing.

I had to get the Double Adjustable LCA's too, to get the rear where it belonged. I couldn't re-install my 28" tires, because the moser was so far back... You should get the LCA relo brackets too, for better traction !

I ordered about $700.oo more parts tonight to finish the rear end, figure I can sell my bolt in BMR relo from the 10 bolt and G2 LCA's for a $120 or so to recoupe some of the extra I didn't plan to spend.
Thank y'all for your help, I had trouble getting answers from the local board.

Moser did put the holes in the wrong location... But, sounds like you have it under control !!! Good Luck !!!
