Well when I put the 8.8 in my jeep my rear d/s was too long, I got it to fit but there was no room for the d/s to move in or out of the T case. I'm having it cut and rebalanced tomorrow but I was wondering how much would be a safe amount to shorten it? It is into the t-case as far as it will go now so have it cut and inch 1 1/2 or more?

you should be able to just measure the distance between t-case and diff. yokes and tell the driveshaft guys, and they should know what to cut it to
