    8\" Skyjacker, mods needed

    I want to install a 8" skyjacker on my 88 K5. I realize that there is going to be modifications needed to be done on the drivelines. Recommendations and opinion on new drivelines or extensions are appreciated. Recommendations on other lifts are also welcome, I am still shopping

    I'd factor in a CV shaft for the rear. You may not need it, but if you plan for it, it won't be a surprise when it happens. Also, a Slipyoke eliminator kit would be great for the 208 in this case. I my self am planning on doing a 8 for my K. You will need a dropped pitman, raised arm or Cross over steering. Brakelines will be a must, and you may need to do exhaust work. My crossover would be in the way in a 8" on my truck, and I'm sure you would be in the same boat. Best of luck.
