    I am going to take my rear driveshaft in to have it lengthened. What should I know and what should I ask for when go? I know the length from the T-Case to the rear end is 41" what else?

    What size u-joints etc . Basically explain what you want to do , and any competent shop can help you . Just adding length doesn't sound hard for a driveshaft shop . When I had my done , it was from scratch , and I gave him my length , what size yoke was on the rearend , that I intended to wheel it etc . I wish I had measured stuffed and drooped , but I don't seem to have any problems :xmas:

    I'm reusing my yokes and u-joints I just need it longer. I called a couple of local guys and got an average quote of about $135. Thats to retube it and balance it. Bye the way this is for my S-3/4 ton Hybrid Truck! :)
