    Im thinking about getting the 0 rate add a leafs for my k5 with a 4"lift, i was goin to keep the axles centered but i think i could use the extra inch of clearance because im running 35x12.50's on a 10 inch rim, but my dad thinks i will get drive line probs since it may make the front or rear shaft too short

    BTW- the transfer case us droped

    The best way to tell if it's going to be a big deal is to jack the frame up 1" and see what it does to the shafts. That way you'll know for sure. That's all the zero rates will do. You may see some pinion angle change also but that generally has a fairly small effect on the driveshaft length.
