    Putting on my 4\" front 5\" rear lift... will I have driveline issues?

    This may be a dumb question, but I would rather find out now rather than later... When putting on my 4" front 5" rear lift, will I need any driveline work? How about pinion angle issues? I have a dropped pitman arm and longer SS brake lines (Thanks TX Mudder) so its ready to go on...

    Thanks

    my front shaft nees to be replaced.at full droop i pulled it apart off a jump.the previos owner put a new rear shaft in already.3 inch tube for strength.it all depends on if you are going for looks or for jumping or what.200 or 300 for custom shafts should be what you are looking at for a price on new ones.or if you can find longer ones at the JY it will be cheaper.ive always wondered if getting a driveshaft from a pickup will give too much extraz length or just enuf?maybe a shortbed pickup will have a good length to use.i have a stock blazer shaft but im not sure how much shorter it is.
