Soa Question

I recently installed a SYE and cv driveshaft that measured out to 17 3/4". im currently sittin on a 4" sus lift and the driveshafter fits fine. i want to go soa w/ my stock spring which will giv me an inch and half more of lift a total of 5 and a half. will this inch and half cause my driveshaft to be too short?

Are you sticking with the D35 rear axle?

That's partially going to depend on how much slip is remaining after the lift.

The 1.5" gain in height alone is not going to be the only contributing factor if the SOA is dialed correctly. You should have more droop too, which means a greater amount of slip will be necessary.

If you are going to use 15 year old stock leafs & go SOA - expect those leafs to be short lived if you wheel it at all.

where the driveshaft slips there is a certain amount of slip that will occur untill the driveshaft comes apart at the center. you should be fine on stock springs though

be sure to find the right angle measurements (spring perches, pinion angle, etc.) invest in high steer from the git-go or cross over steering. longer shocks preferably bilstein or old man emu provide softest rides. if you know how to you can snail wrap your leaf packs or by a traction bar for the rear.

dont be dead set on 5.5" of lift. i know this gets thrown around allot but the reality can be different. my worn 2.5" leaves puts my soa about where a fresh 4" lift would be.
