I got 4 inches of lift and I need new shafts front and rear. I have the two piece (dented and out of balance) rear and want to ditch it. Also i have an extra front shaft. What do you think about using the front CV for a rear shaft when i have new ones built. Is it strong enough? Is there a point? Are reg. U joints a better plan?

Depends on what the measurements are from the tranny flange to the diff flange. If you measure from the top of the tranny flange to the top of the diff flange and do the same on the bottom and the measurements are almost the same, mine were 67 1/8 top and 67 1/16 bottom the guy at the d-shaft place I go to told me I did not need the CV. This is a one piece d-shaft on a 90 ex-cab. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">
