    Running 4\" TCI Springs (?RS 9012?)

    If I put F250 towers and 9012s on my front end will I need to get a longer travel driveline. Right now I have about 1.5" of spline engagement give or take on full droop. I just need to know any of you who are running this setup with the stock travel in the slip joint on the front DL.

    Thanks
    Dave Cowley

    I did have that combo on my K5, but it also had a D60 front (longer pinion snout). No problem with the spline engagement on mine, but might be on a stock D44/10B front when you flex.

    Mine is a D60 also so it sounds like it should be fine. Thanks for the post. Anybody elses commentary is welcome.

    Mine was fine with the stock shaft, 4" lift, and 9012's. Also it's on a D60.
