I was going to wait to get a lift till after some more 4wheelin but my radius arms are really messed up and they stoped making them and I guess no dealer in the us has them. Plus today I herd something fall out of my truck and after much looking I realised that it was my leaf spring not just one of the halper leafs but three. It also need shocks and front spings so I guess I am going to get the lift now and put it in. My question is if I put a 6" lift on a 82 f-150 extended cab will I need to have my drive shaft made longer? Every one I know has no idea just a guess. Also is there anything else that I mite run into?
triangulate (Geometry, A squared + b squared = c squared) the level length from the tail shaft to the rear cup(A), the difference in the distance in height of the same two points(B) and the current length(C) to what it will be(C). If the shaft length increases by more than about 1.5 inches I would get it lengthened.....
i have a 94 bronco i lifted 6". i didn't have to do anything with my drive shaft. i called the tech's where i bought my lift kit and he said i shouldn't have any problems.
the only thing i had to do was add the original rear blocks (which were angled) with blocks in the kit to pitch my pumkin up a little to take the stress off my universals.
