    With the front you will def need one, the rear you may need one as well depending on what type of tcase you have. I know its not the proper way but my slip yoke is just slid a little out. I will be getting a new shaft when I can afford a SYE kit.

    I want to be able to clear a 36 inch tire. I just think it will be a good all around look. Now is it cheaper to lengthen them or just buy some CV type ones?

    so the 4 inch will clear the 35s no problem? the truck is in mint condition , so i dont really want to cut fenders.

    4" 35 no wheeling or fender contact. best to do 4" and 3" body if you dont want problems. and you will have room for bigger later.

    Thats the reason i want to just got ahead with the 6 inch and get it out of the way, and a 36 sounds like a perfect size. I just want it to look proportional, not all squaty like it does now.

    do some searching as this has been coverd and will have some good points with some pics. and look at actual tire size specs. you will find most 36" tires are closer to 35" tires. hear is a friends blazer with 4" fronts and blocks for 6" kit in rear all with 3" body lift and 37" tires on 10" wide rims. good luck and you have found the best site for blazers. :D
