    Depends on your setup. How much does your slip yoke slide into the t-case? what is the angle on your driveshaft now. Do you have any vibration problems now?

    Although answering these question will help you decide, only trying it will tell.

    More than likely new shafts. 4" sometimes you can get by anything more than that your pushing it. Especially if you flex it hard.
