    I have a 76 GMC Jimmy w/6" lift gotta lengthen both drive shafts,But, I was wondering if a stock rear dirve shaft from a short box 4x4 scottsdale would work in place of the very needed lengthened rear I have on there now?
    Thanx,

    You can't really fudge DS length! You'll have to take measurements, and have a shop lengthen your shaft for you... which also means shortening the front shaft.... /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Well heres the problem I have to lengthen both the front & rear shafts, not shorten the front.
    But, Thanx anyways, It was only a passing thought.
