    ok guys
    How bad is this, and what do I need to do, and how much is it gonna cost me to fix it.
    This thing hasn't been lifted at all (but will be shortly), the tranny was just redone, what in the world would cause this?

    check out the pictures at

    If it gives you the little red x, just click on it and it should come up....

    Thanks guys

    Ok, now I see what your talking about. that is the slip in the driveshaft. That is normal. This allows the driveshaft to extend and retract as the axle moves up and down. normally there is a rubber boot over that to keep foreign object out.

    If I put a lift on it, will this cause problems? won't that pull it out more? do I need to get this thing lengthened?

    It will pull it out some more. It jsut depends on how much of a lift your gonna install. You should be ok with say a 4" lift and maybe even a 6". I have a 4" and I haven't had to extend mine.
