    Hey all,
    I just made a deal for a 2" EZ-RIDE lift kit for my suburban, all spring. I do plan on upgrading my drive shaft/u-joints at a later time, but my queston right now is, do I HAVE to upgrade/ change anything on my drive shafts when I add the 2" lift? Right now they are stock '78 1/2 ton suburban drive shafts/u-joints. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
