    hi guys,
    I want to get me a new rear drive shaft with double joints, 'cause I'm tired of replacing the u-joints every couple months.
    I have a 6" Lift, how many Inches can the shaft be longer then the original???

    Don't worry about comparing it to stock, just measure your truck and get it made for your truck. Just because your truck has a 6" suspension lift doesn't mean that your shaft needs to be a specific number of inches longer. There are many factors that could make yours different than another truck...so just make sure you measure yours correctly.

    Drive it to the drive shaft shop and have them figure everything out. That's what I did.
