    6\" lift question

    I want to put a 6 inch lift on my blazer and i have questions first. Will i need a new driveshafts with 6 inches or will the stock ones still fit? /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif I really dont have the money for a new shaft right now as i have just put a new motor and tranny in the blazer. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I think the stock shafts are really pushing it on 6" even with dropping the tranny down. I tried it and had no luck. Maybe other people have. Good Luck.

    You need to shop around for driveshaft shops. Here re-tubing a front is like 40 bux since you don't need to balance a part-time. Rear is about 110 for a re-tube on rear and balanced.

    I've got a 6" lift on my blazer with stock drivelines. I've had it flexed to the point wheir I had a tire off the ground and haven't pulled a driveline apart yet. But I am planning on new drivelines as soon as money allows.

    I have a 6". My rear shaft is OK but my front is too short.

    By lowering the t-case and adding a driveshaft spacer to the front, you *might* be able to make it work. Definately wouldn't be the most ideal set-up though, IMO.
