    Swapped out my 8 inch lift last weekend to a 4 inch. I think I need to lenghthen my rear driveshaft. Here is a pic. The 4 inch lift has made a big inprovement over driveability on the highway. Now when I push my breaks I am not all over the road. :eek1:

    Yes, that shaft needs to be lengthened to were the seal was originally riding (end of shiny spot) looks like maybe 1.5"-2" ?
