    I'm going to be installing a shackle flip on 84 blazer,np208 14 bff.I'm going to order a cv driveshaft from Tom Wood's before I get the flip.My question is should I go with the same length as stock shaft or what?

    You will be fine with the same length shaft.

    If you plan on doing any kind of offroading, then the answer is yes.

    Im gonna run bilstein shocks when that time comes (probably next week). Not sure what series, but most likely plain 5100s. Probably the best name for our buildups. I gotta figure out what length though...

    Technically you should do the flip first then take the measurement for the driveshaft and have it built. Stock length should work but is probably not going to be the optimum length for your setup.
