2001 V70XC viscous coupling to permanent 4wd

Post by Helar J » Mon Nov 21, 2016 1:18 pm

Hey everybody!
I have a 2001 V70XC with the old pre-haldex system. For some time already I have thought if it is possible to remove the VC from the rear differential and lenghten the cardan shaft so that there is no VC in between. The rebuild itself seems fairly easy and the outcome would be a nice, permanent 4wd. With this idea some questions popped to my head.
1) Has anyone ever done something like this?
2) Are there any dangers involved?
3) Should I know anything more involving the rebuild?
Thanks in advance!
P.S.
Sorry for any grammar mistakes etc. English is not my mother language and I haven't had a good practice in a few years :P
