    I use one. I didn't need it until I swapped in my D44 - then the splines just started to show out of the shaft, so I decided to put one in (I'm running 4" lift). Superlift is the only company I know of that makes them. I bought mine from www.ultimate4wheeldriveperformance.com

    Oh yeah, with tax and shipping, it was $67.10

    I've got one. My BDS 4" lift ended up being closer to 6-7" in the front. Had about 1.5" of the splines showing. I got my spacer from 4wheel parts for $43.70 (can't find the receipt but I bought it a 86$ body bushing kit that was on sale and had the whole thing sent for 136.xx)

    I think mainly its used to get the driveshaft angle out past the crossmember and factory exhuast ypipe /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    (it was shipped with a body bushing kit, there was a $12 4wheel parts performance something charge (I think because I had them ship it ASAP) I still can't find the receipt /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
