Question Front driveshaft question

Installing a Currie 4" lift and swapping to a HP D30 front axle at the same time. Wondering if I need to plan on a new front driveshaft (or at least lengthen what I have). With the two together, does it keep it all close enough to the same to not need to mess with that?

Thanks,

Eric

You can keep your front DS as is for your 4" Currie (great choce) lift. It is so much longer than the rear driveshaft is that it is not nearly as affected by lift height as the rear driveshaft is.
