You will most definately need a longer rear shaft with that much lift... Costs me about $200 to get my rear lengthened, most of the cost is in the tube since I run a real heavy wall to resist dents. Stock size tube will probably only be in the $150 range, but then again steel prices went up 65% about 2 weeks ago :flame:

Most people go thinner. The stock one is really thick and that aluminum so its easier to balance.

you may not have to strtch your shaft but will definately have to relocate carrier brg, just check your splines after you lift it then worry about that. hell your from cali aint ya must be 50 chrome shops by you. you can save a lot of money on chrome if you polish it yourself first.
