    79 K5 about to get 4\" lift w/35\" tires

    I was wondering if the driveshaft is going to work correctly after I install a Pro-Comp 4" suspension lift and 35" Pro Comp MTs? I read the earlier posts about the lift and the great tips on being prepared. That helped but I am nervous about what problems I am going to run into after the lift is done.

    How many more insects would there be if there were no cars to hit them?

    you should be fine...that is if you plan on only street driving. If you want to do some trails then you better plan on going with 6" or for a 4" needing some fender trim.

    Your d-shafts should be fine with a 4" lift.

    But like Lehtola said, you may rub alot while offroad..
