    Talking 10 inch lift on 1986 3/4 ton chevy silverado

    got everything ordered up to do my 10 inches plus 38 inch tires. just wondering if i should do a single lengthened driveshaft or toss in an extra cv joint? what do you guys think about this? plus does anyone have any pics of this body truck with the same lift and tire combo just so i can see what im gonna look like at the end? thnx guys.

    Should be a regular cag long bed so a one piece drive shaft should work.

    yeah its a reg cab long bed truck. ok. its just the guy at the welding shop said i might have to go with an additional cv joint due to vibration but hopefully i wont have to because this lift and tires is runnin my wallet dry. haha.

    A friend of mine is running stock shafts on his '84 ton truck with 12" springs and 40" Hawgs. No problems. If you get your lower joint angle correct, there will be no vibrations.

    awesome guys. thnx for those awesome truck pics btw. i was hoping that 10 inches and 38.5x14.50 thornbirds wouldnt look stupid and all those trucks look pretty decent. i might need a shim kit to correct my joint angles though.
