    well hopefully i will be installing my doubler this weekend and now i need to order driveshafts. Before doing so I would really appreciate everyones input on what would be the best driveshafts to use. I am looking into high angle 1350's f/r- its on an 84 suburban 12 inches of lift - 60/14ff - 39.5 boggers and is strictly an offroad vehicle. Thanks for the info.

    Your plan sounds excellent.

    Depending on rear shaft length you may need the big CV (42*) with that much lift, you'll have to measure some angles.

    agree on HAD. Best shafts you can get. tom woods are suposed to be good also, but I don't own any. I wouldnt trade my front/rear HADs for nuttin. :)

    what are you thinking shert sub?

    12" lift is all wrong! all you need is a 6" lift plus BIG DOOKIE's in the rear. as far as your drive shafts go, you need extra long slips! if your shafts are to short and you wrap an axle you will brake all your ****! there was a guy at shiloh ridge that tried to follow me in my burb and he broke everything in one "snap!" because his rear drive shaft was to long! and hey siccerfab "what ever your name is" whats "tsc"?

    Big Dookies

    "just a term of endermant". extra think add-a-leafs from 4-wheel-parts-whoselers. they will give 2 1/2 " of lift. less flex but cheap lift! i was just picken on short sub. there is a link to some pics on my profile.

    If you go with HAD consider the 205 flange and 1410's. Just my .02 cuz I like beefy parts. LOL. My buddy tim is runnin the 1410's and I think if he didnt he'd be regrettin it. He did smoke a set of ubolts although...[​IMG]

    I broke my set of add a leaves about 2 months ago. The 5 year old add a leaves broke before the 20 year old springs did. This makes me question there durability and not want to ever run them again. They also make the truck ride like ass. My 4" lift springs ride better then my stock springs with 2.5" add a leaves did.

    uhm, you've got that for drivetrain, and 12" of lift? sounds like you've got a crawler/trail rig drivetrain under a mud truck. i would seriously look into bringin that pig down! i'm getting a set of 39.5s to run with my 6" TC front springs, and a 6" Echobit shackle flip.
