    yesterday I completed my 14bff swap w/ shackle flip, along with flip I installed a 1" zero rate, my total lift gained is about 5 3/4" , now my question is, what do I need to do with my driveshaft?, the guy who has done driveshafts for me before told me that I need to run a cv in the rear because of the extreme angle on the joint at the transfer case I want to know if this is necessary, $$$ is tight and I don't want to get ripped off spending that extra dough if I don't need it, I have a 205, does anyone have the same set up as me with or without the cv? I already intend to get the 1350 yokes along with a longer tube, is the cv really needed?

    I did the shackle flip and I am not running a CV joint on my blazer.
