    I recently bought a 81 K-5. Someone put a suspension lift on it and i dont think they did it right. When i am 4 wheeling and am crawling over stuff the rear yoke and the drive shaft pinch the u-joint. is there a cheap and easy fix for it?

    how is the rear lifted. springs or blocks? I have used axel shims to correct pinion angles but don't like to use shims and blocks together. but I guess it can be done.

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    its lifted by springs. someone told me to tilt the axel to a different angle. but i am not sure. i am wondering if i put new shocks on it if it would make a difference.

    <font color=purple>Nope shocks won't fix it. But a 4" lift with springs really shouldn't be causing this problem. Tilting the axle would help. However that can be expensive. Take a good look at your driveshaft, is it bent, maybe they lenghtened it to much? just some things to ponder.</font color=purple>
