HP30 Swap Driveshaft Length

I'm going to be swapping in my HP30 in a few weeks. Tonight I had the Jeep up on the hoist and when I tried to remove the front driveshaft, it didn't have enough compression left to separate it from the yoke at the housing.

Currently sitting on 4.5" of lift and short arms. Am I going to have to get my driveshaft shortened?

When your axle droops it compresses the driveshaft, so it might be at that limit. You shouldn't have a problem with the HP30 although I'd check it again at full droop. WThe last thing you want is to have the driveshaft crack your t-case. When I swapped in my HP30 I didn't have to change the driveshaft.
