    My specs:

    6" front springs
    echobit flip in the rear
    36" tires

    I haven't lifted the rear yet and am expecting some pretty severe driveline angles. Is there an expected amount of degree change that would result from dropping the t-case? I would like to be able to stay with a regular driveshaft (all u-joint). Would this be possible?

    Thanks

    Put the lift on, drive it, then decide if you need to drop the case. W/ 5.5" of lift on my '80 I needed to drop the case about 1" w/ 5.5" of lift on my '73 I didn't. The difference: two different x-fer cases.

    I'm using that same setup with the addition of a 1 in zero rate in the back. The flip pointed my pinion straight at the t-case, so I'm having to get a CV shaft for the rear.
