    I picked up an extended driveshaft with 1350 yokes, and is about 3/4" longer than stock. (Stock is around 29.5", this one is about 30-1/4") Is there a rule of thumb for how much length should be added for a certain amount of lift? Like 4" lift should be around 1", 6" add 1.5", etc. I know every truck is different, just looking for a general guess or SWAG /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
