will i have to worry about my driveshaft length?
 
i want to install a SYE/cv shaft and rear upper control arms on my lifted tj.
it has the dana 35, which i dont really want to spend any money on to upgrade... what i want is a ford 8.8. Probably from ECGS. but because of funding, i need to hold off on the axle.
my question is this: If i buy a SYE/cv shaft with a length that accommodates for the D35, will i need to buy a shorter drive shaft?
i believe the ford 8.8 is 1/8 inch longer with respect to the pinion...
or can i get away with figuring in the 1/8 inch on the measurements? or is that unwise?

Until you know she likes it, yes you should worry about your driveshaft length...

Your CV shaft should be able to accomadate the difference...

the CV shaft has quiet a bit of movement. that 1/8th wont account for much
