    6\" lift front shaft?

    With a 6" lift on the Blazer would I need to change driveshafts? Either front or rear? I read something on Superlift's site(brand I will go with) about having to grind the stock CV joint with a 6" lift. Anyone know anything about that?

    i dont know about that..but i know you will need to probobly extend your drive shaft or get a custom one..due to the extreme angles your shafts will be at, with a 4 inch lift thats about as high as you can go usually with out possibly having to do that..

    <font color="green"> I had to extend the front shaft, but didn't have to clearance it for regular use. When I get longer shocks that will allow more droop then I will have to do some clearancing. </font color>

    I have the shortest stock driveshaft a truck can come with and all I did was grind all the stops off and it works on my truck. I have a 6" suspension. I have not checked it with full wheel travel though I suspect it'd be quite short.
