96 ford lift problem

i have the same truck with a 9 in. lift and i had to get both drive shafts extended. it's cheaper to get them extended than to buy new ones.

I have a 77 F-150 and I had to get my shafts lengthened after a 9" lift. Genetics I guess lol.

Yeah, you will need to get them extended, and it is cheaper to just take yours in and have them add a couple inches. I think I paid 300 to have 2 shafts extended and checked, balanced, and new U-joints, but there was a little extra work that had to be done on mine because of an alteration the previous owner tried to do on the drive shafts.
