    How short is the rear driveshaft going to ba and what kind of angle is it going to be with a doubler on a K5? I have a 6 inch lift, th400, and a 14 bolt in the rear...

    My driveline is already very short...
    How much shorter and how much worse of an angle will my rear driveline bee...
    I suppose it would be time to get the new driveline from Jesse at that tiem too huh...

    If you're running a 205 now, it'll be 6" longer. If you have a 203, the rear driveshaft will stay the same. You shouldn't have any problems with a 6" lift but you're probably going to want to go with a CV jointed driveshaft. This is similar to the combo that's in quite a few vehicles on this site, the UAV is one of them and it all works out pretty well, so you should be fine.
