4" of lift is really pushing it for a stock Rubi rear DS.

Front shaft should be fine - mine was with the 5.5" RELA with 1" spacers.

Agreed,, I'm sticking with my 2" spring, 1" body lift.. Plenty of stock flex, and plenty of room for 33s.. All the mods and added expense for a 4" lift, to gain 1" of clearance?? I'll keep my center of gravity low, and if I ever feel the need for that extra inch, I'll install a belly up skid and gain 2"... If I do go to 35s, a sawsall, and tube fenders work really good. Just my idea, for my rubi, TEHO

Worth it to do it right IMO. I'll get the new rear DS. This is my only vehicle but I have a company work van so I don't drive it mon-fri. Still want to drive up north n shit and not have to worry about her breaking down.
