    You should be ok, but if your going to do something then I would extend your drive shaft. I really dont think loosening up your axle then tightening it back up is going to change anything. As a matter a fact the person that told you that is nuts. Another thing you might think of is shims which pivot the angle of your axle housing, this wont make up for the entire inch lost but will help somewhat. One more thing you might think of is dropping down your t-case which will also help on the lose of the inch. But keep in mind that for the smoothest ride of your vehicle you should keep the angle, of both your t-case and rear axle, parallel in other words at the same angle.

    Another option is to purchase Superlift's 1" driveshaft spacer part no. 4310. It's basically a steel spacer with four grade 8 bolts and lock washers. You install it between the flange at the t-case end. It costs about $40.00.

    That's pretty good advise above. try one of the drive shaft shops with websites for some more shaft info. I like Tom Woods Custom Shafts, www.4xshaft.com
    Another to try is high angle driveline, I don't have their url right now, but a search would find it.
    Thanks
