    so i notoced when i lift my truck on the rack at work it seems like the drive shaft is almost to short so that leads me to belive that if i put my lift on the shaft maybe to short the lift is only 4" what do you think /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    ok to be bit more helpful i think the prior trany was a 700r . and im wondering which drive shaft longer a t350/208 or a 700/208 /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    It depends only way to find out is lift it and see. You used to have a 700? and now have a 350? I lost about 1/2" when I did the swap so if you are looking for a new driveshaft get one from a 208 equipped shortbox pickup and have it shortened. Thats what I am doing it's cheaper plus then you have a spare driveshaft. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
