    It's as simply as puting a spacer between your crossmember and frame. I've got a 4" lift and I dropped mine 1". I would recommend it, but thats just my opionon.

    You already have them. Unblot your tcase crossmember - they are on the bolt, on top of the framerail. Just put them between your crossmemer and the frame. Once you get under there with a wrench, you'll see what I mean.
    Just remember that for every degree you correct the rear, you are making the front angles worse the same amount.
    On my k20 with 6" the front angle is where the problem is. I understand the shorter wheelbase k5s have to worry about the rear also.

    TX Mudder-Just wondering... what have you done to ease the front shaft's angle? If I go CV in the rear too I shouldn't really need to drop the t-case should I?

    Well, I rebuilt my front CV (the pin bushing had worn to the point where the CV would wobble instead of just spinning. It clears now with no grinding. I have not flexed it out yet to see if it hits when I do. I imagine it will bind when I flex it out, and I plan on using my air die grinder to clearance the yokes and CV. Until then, I've been busing building up the rest of the truck.
