Front Driveshaft

I have a single double Carolina front driveshaft in my WJ currently with a 4.5" lift. I might possibly drop down to a 3" lift. The drive shaft is 35 1/2". If I drop to a 3" from a 4.5" will I need a new driveshaft? TIA

Never heard of a carolina driveshaft

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

Flipflop there's probably a formula to figure this out based on the current angle it's at. Maybe Carolina could help but I'd say as long as you have an inch or so left on the slip yoke to allow it to shorten you'll be fine especially on the street. Off road fully compressed it could bottom out worst case but you'd have to jump the thing I'd think. Could also disconnect one side or the other to simulate lowering it to make sure.

I never knew they existed. Thanks. Cool tip. Just checked out their web site.

Does your current driveshaft handle the suspension in full compression now where it hits the bumps stops? Would you be changing the upward travel of the suspension? Probably not. If the upward travel remains the same then I would think you would be ok.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.
