Driveshaft length with 8.8?? help
Im swapping in a 8.8 with 4" lift and im curious as to what length my rear driveshaft shoot be.

im going to use a cherokee front shaft with a double cardan joint.

i just need an idea of how long the shaft should be.

the double cardan joint is out of the cherokee(stock)

which SYE kit are you using, there are different ones, JB SSYE, or the normal AA SYE

regardless, with 4" you have to measure it, most driveline shops have a website page describing this:

Dennys Driveshaft How To Measure Correctly for driveshafts that fit right

How to measure driveshaft and universal joints

Action Machine Inc - How to Measure a Driveshaft: Includes photos & directions

Tom Wood's Custom Drive Shafts - Technical Information

and then there is this:
