    Yes, you gain a little lift... not much. You will also either need to shorten the front driveline or push the front axle forward, like w/ 52's or zero rates or something.

    The dana 60 gives aprox 3/4 of an inch of lift. The pinion does stick out a bit more. Depending on how much lift you have, you may or may not need mod the front driveshaft. I have 6 inch front springs and didn't do anything to my front shaft. Haven't had a problem with it yet anyways.
