    4" will usually stretch, but at 6" you are really pushing it with stock length stuff. to have a driveline shop make yours longer is pretty cheap if the stock ones are i good shape.

    My friend lifted his '84 and the front works fine. The rear shaft will still slide into the t-case and he drives it like that, but it really needs to be longer to be done right.
