    need drive line specs for 74 blazer with 4\" lift

    I bought a 74 blazer with a 4" lift and it came with no front drive line. What length do I need for a 4" and a 6" lift on the front drive line? Also this thing is lower in the front than the back what can I do to make this thing level or slightly taller in the front?

    ORD's 1" zero rates for the front will give you 1" lift /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    i need a 29" shaft for my 73, but the best way to check is to measure the distance between the yoke on the axle and the yoke on the t-case, that will be the length you need

    If your sure you have a 4 inch lift stock shafts should be fine. I've been running mine that way for 15 years, no problems. But the Best thing to do is measure from flange to flange and have them made to the correct length . If you can, go with a cv in the rear. If you have more than a 4 inch lift you will need longer than stock.
