    4\" lift

    i am considering going with a lift. don't really need the hight just wider tires so i may go with a 2", but then again you can't really go high enough. what mods are required to the driveshafts(both front and back) on a 4" lift??

    My buddy's red '72 is currently using the stock front driveshaft, but it gets over-extended when he droops the suspension fully on the highway (when cresting fast rises). He is running a longer rear driveshaft than stock. I'm not sure on the measurements...

    To doit right new driveshaft would be in the best thing to do.
    also a steering arm is needed to keep that drag link parallel with the ground. Brake lines and such shouldn't be much of issue at most the front brackets would be relocated to the bottom of the frame rails.
    Good Luck
