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.

It's no wonder the country is falling apart - stupidity abounds!

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

04' Rubi, with all the gizmos we need for long range excursions, / home modified excursion trailer;

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.
