Remco Driveline Disconnect
Shifter cable general location
Coupler & Shifter
When you tow your rear-wheel drive
car, van, pickup or SUV, the drive shaft to the rear axle must
be disconnected to prevent damage to the automatic transmission.
This requires physically disconnecting the driveshaft from the
differential and tying it up to the frame or other attachment
point. Remco's Drive Shaft Coupling was developed to
provide a quick and easy means of disconnecting the transmission
while sitting in the driver's seat. The coupling (mechanical
clutch) is installed into the rear portion of the vehicle's
drive shaft, near the rear axle.
Note: Not all rear wheel drive
vehicles require a Driveline Disconnect system.
One of ours:
One of our Driveline Disconnect
Shafts ready to be shipped. There all high-speed balanced on both sides
of the 180 degree lock and assembled using only the
highest quality USA made components such as, seamless high strength
DOM tubing, weld yokes, slip yokes and heavy duty u-joints. You can't get better than
this no matter how hard you try.
Some important reading:
Disconnect kits "are not, one size fits all". Kits
especially the driveshaft are
strictly year, make and model specific. We will need you
or your mechanic to provide specific information to us concerning style, length, and size of
your original vehicle Driveshaft. If your not
personally comfortable doing some information
gathering, we would suggest printing out the appropriate
worksheet linked below and seeking out a competent
mechanic to retrieve the information for you, which
should take no more than 30 minutes
(sorry, but Southwest
Driveline does not offer recommendations).
- If your vehicle uses a multi (2) piece driveshaft
assembly that utilizes a support bearing, replacing the
rear section with a non-assembly balanced shaft may cause
your multi (2) piece shaft assembly to become un-balanced. Multi (2) piece shaft
assemblies are balanced as a "complete assembly" when
manufactured at its factory. Replacing any section can
upset the original balance.
- You should be "familiar" with driveshaft assemblies,
how they work and the terminology that's used by our
industry in order to glean the appropriate information
that we require.
- Some installations will require you to remove
original u-joints and or other stock components and
re-install them into your driveline coupler shaft at
time of installation.
- All Disconnect kits are based on the information you
supply to us by use of one of our specific information forms. If you have made
changes such as differentials, driveshafts,
transmissions or components that change the original
specifications of your vehicle, you will need to supply
us with that information also.
- If your vehicle utilizes an aluminum single (1)
piece driveshaft that has a length of 70 inches or
longer, you will need to visit our
Aluma-Coupler Driveline Disconnect page for further
