    Im doin a 9" susp. lift in the rear and 8" in the front
    (just got the springs today /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif) As far as driveshafts, will all i need to do is get them lengthened? Or will I have to get a CV shaft for the rear? Also, I've been quoted $100 per shaft to get them lengthened. Is that a fair price. Thanks for the help.

    If your T-case uses a slip yoke (I don't know what year your truck is) it will need a c/v shaft. As for the price of lengthening them, that is a whole lot cheaper than it is in my area.

    If it is a 700/208 then it has a slip yoke.

    What size tires you planning on running under that thing? My guess is you are running stock 10-bolt axles. I hope this is just a pretty truck if you plan to run a 305/700/208 combo with oversized tires and that much lift. Cause that is the weakest combo you could possibly put together.
