    When doing this swap from stock ride height will the original driveshafts be usable?

    center point of your springs is 26" instead of 24 inches. so your driveshaft will need to be longer at ride height first. second. these springs are much flexier than the stock 48" and you will pull the driveshaft apart. so in my opinion YES unless you use a limiting strap of some sort which defeats the whole purpose and work of installing 52's. There are threads about this subject ALL over CK5.
