Will a stock front drive shaft work with a 4 in. suspension lift.
Yes, but if you want to be absolutely sure you can have it lengthened like i am going to.
So far, with some of the flexin i have been doin, mine has been ok though.
What can happen without a longer d.s. and a 4" lift.
(worst case scenario)
Not sure yet, but from what i can see, it would seem that the slip joint part of the driveshaft could possibly pull apart, again, not sure though as i do not know how long these parts are.
Maybe somebody else on here has had one apart and can tell us how long they really are???
worse case senario, it pulls apart and flops around. if you and crawling minimal damage is done, but if yuor going faster than 20mph it can do some major damage /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
i had a front ujoint came of the yoke and punched a hole in the pan and killed my motor /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif/forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
Not to H.J. this thread but ,does the rear d.s. also need to be loger with a 4" lift? (susp. lift)
any advice appreciated.
Nope, i am using both stock driveshafts.
Again, it would be nicer to have maybe another two inches or so as the lift has cause it to pull out slightly from the rear of the t-caes, but it has been working fine for me so far.
my d.s on my sub is good, I haven't flexed it out yet but I have a lot of slip...
Thanks for the info /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
