    I just installed a 6" lift on my 72 K5. Can anyone tell how much I need to lengthen my drive shafts?

    All trucks are different. There is no one length drive shaft fits all 6" lifts. As allready stated...some do not need any lenghtning, and others may. The only way to know is take measurements on your drive shaft. A company called High Angle drive lines has a web site, which shows you how to measure your drive shaft to see if it needs to be lengthened and how much.
