    Just lengthening the rear shaft might work, but I think your still going to have issues even if you relocated the perches at a different angle. If i were you, I'd just go with the CV shaft.

    Lol most people have vibration issues with 8" and some with 6". I'd go CV. Call Jesse /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    When I went to the 12" kit I went ahead and got a rear cv high angle driveshaft.Never had any vibration problems yet.
    But when I had the 12" lift on my former 91 blazer it was a different story.I did not get a cv ds and it went through 4 or 5 TH400 rebuilds. I would go with High Angle Drivelines
    for sure /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
