When i did my 8.8 swap i still had a sagging 3.5 lift so the driveshaft may have been SLIGHTLY too long.. but i kept it and have had not problems with my 8.8 - heres a shot of mine right after the install.

If I remember correctly I ordered a Tom Woods CV shaft at 14.25" length. I have no clue what the stock shaft is.

I'm running an 8.8 with 3"lift springs and SOA'd so it may be a little longer than your application. Just make usre when you weld up the spring perches to aim the 8.8 output right at the T-case. my buddy did mine wrong and i have to use shims now! geez don't make that mistake
