    I installed a 4" rough country suspension lift on my 85K5, now I need a longer driveshaft. Does anyone know the length I need to make it work. Also does anybody have one for sale?
    Thanks

    Is it the front driveshaft that is too short? I used a Superlift spacer on mine and it works great. We might have a spare one. It was $50 new. Let me know if that's what you need and I'll see if we have one for sale.

    I just did that too. You can the lengths in this thread

    I also did the front. I am not sure of the original length but the shop made it 1 inch longer. The price for the custom front drive shaft with all new parts was $180 with exchange.
