You can do what you want but you know what happens when that front shaft locks up at 55 mph right? Bumpers are a want not a need, as is a lift. A drivetrain is needed....

yeah the shaft is already out, was gonna fix the cv joint but it was messed up beyond just replacing with the kit from the parts store. i just dont wanna pay the 5 to 8 hundred bucks for most i see. but i also dont wanna buy one that breaks again in a few weeks or months.

find a drive shaft shop, i just had both mine done, they both needed the cv replaced, one needed a whole new slip shaft all new u joints and balanced, for under 500. for what you need i would guess around 200...and then you know its done right...the place i went even painted them, they looked brand new when i got them back....
