    I have an '87 3/4 ton 4x4 Chevy. I want to put a 4in suspension lift on my truck. I want to make sure my driveshaft can handle the different angle. I don't want any odd vibrations or sounds. I would like any info from other peoples experiences about this truck and lifting it.

    No problems. You have a long bed. The shafts will be fine. Just be sure to get the drop steering arm, NOT the dropped Pitman arm, or dropped drag link. After installing the dropped steering arm, the truck will make even tighter turns than before the lift.<p>~Chuck<p>----------<br>Chuck's Chevy Truck Pages - Snowplowing Central<br>http://members.aol.com/csmith669/plowcentral.html
