Do i have to get a different drive shaft? I was reading about a 1330 to 1310 flange swap is that necessary why swap it? Is there anything to look out for or thing i should be doing while swaping the axle, i'm going to lift it at the same time since it kind of makes sense why move the control arm brackets twice right i'm planning to go with a 4.5 inch lift. Also im going to space all wheels 5/8 and have the wider stance on the front and still gives me the option of rotating my tires.

Get somewhere with experience to do your gear set up. That way you know they have done it before and since you'll buy the parts there as well, you'll have warranty. You'll need the flange adapter for the 8.8 swap,, IRO sells them.

As for the spacers, don't get 5/8" and it is perfectly legal to run spacers front and rear. If you only want that much less backspacing, just use a new wheel that takes that into account, otherwise you should be using SpiderTrax or similar spacers. Also, where are you moving the control arm brackets to and why?

I used the flange off the exploder and just got new Ujoints and it worked out perfect with my existing DS

I originally thought i would have to move them it seems now i don't so i will just do the axle swap for now. I don't just have the axle i have the entire explorer to strip down lol.

Spacers will pass inspection in BC. He probably thinks you'll use the slip on kind which are not recommended.

My dad told they would too but i feel better offsetting the wheels. having the wider stance on the front wont be such a bad thing and hardly be noticeable
