so i got a free DS for my SYE

my driveshaft is the front shaft out of a durango i was planning on getting it cut down and balanced to use when i install my SYE my question is.... it only has 2.5" of slip in the shaft is this going to be enough.... i have seen some DS's with up to 4" of slip

any info would be great.

I'd say yes.
Measure your suspension fully cycling,
(I took my springs out) and see.
I had remarkably less slip needed than I thought.
With that, (assuming 2.5 usable, not 2.5" and it falls apart) I'd say have just over an inch for compression, and about 1.4" for droop/slip.
