    Will the stock driveshaft work if the truck has no lift?

    The 14 bolt uses a 1350 ujoint.
    Your drivehshast will have a 1310 ujoint.
    What some people do is buy a conversion ujoitn from NAPA with 1310 caps on one side and 1350 caps on the other.
    Try a search for more info on this.

    Uh yea, that would suck. If you don't mind me asking, how much does it cost to have a shaft shortened? Or can you do it yourself?

    we just put a 60 front, in my friends with a 6 inch lift, his driveshaft was never lengthend for the 6 inch lift, so we figured the 60 would shorten the driveshaft for us cuz of the longer pinion, the front shaft needed to be shortend to even bolt up..... You might be ok, i dunno,
