    I don't know what length to be exact but when I was thinking about a 6" I was told I would need to lengthen the shafts. I talked to the guys at "The Off Road Shop" and they said they could do it for about $200-300 for both shafts. I think he said they need to lengthened 2-3" not sure though. Might want to check them out.
    Also, I know of a pretty good shaft shop in Mesquite if your interested.

    Hey George
    Your best bet is to install the springs & then measure. If your old shaft is in good shape they can retube it. If you put the 14 bolt in now you wont have to have your "new" shaft shortened later. The 14 bolt's yoke is longer than a 10 bolt.Dont bother with The off-road shop, they will rip you off.
    Inland truck parts, they are downtown Dallas but they are good & have a fair price. Hows the truck coming ?
