    well as some of you know, im having a 700r4 swapped in with a np205 in place of th350 that came with the truck. So i have to have driveshafts made for the truck. Well the truck already has 6 inch suspension lift on and my next step is to swap in 1 ton axles and cutout flares. At first i wanted to add the ORD rear shackle flip(2.5 lift) and hill 4wheeldrive heavy duty shackles in the front(1 5/8 lift), but i decided against that because of driveshaft angles. Well now that im getting new driveshafts made, do yall think i can run those shackles and not have problems? From what i read, it looks like im going to have to put shims if i do? The d60 will raise the front 3/4 of an inch so that would get it close to level as well.

    its also worth noting that both the d60 and 14b have about a 1" longer pinion that the 1/2 stuff.
