    I'm assuming by your name we're talking about a K5, right? Try a search of the forums (type in "6 inch lift" for all forums, "and" as the search options, and "all posts"). Reason I'm taking the easy way out by saying search is that this is a heavily covered topic, and also there are many ways around it (some people say they didn't even need to.)

    I'm running a 1 inch spacer on the front to keep the front shaft from hitting the transfer case crossmember and the rear shaft was lengthened 1 inch.
