Yes you will. They won't be near long enough.

My front is good with 8 so you should be fine. Make sure you adjust your carrier bearing other then that it should be good to go. Good drive shafts will not hurt however.

Almost certain you won't need to. But, you will need a carrier bearing shim.

Your kit should come with a carrier drop piece. It is just a spacer. I just bought a truck that has an 8in lift for the past 160km. The slipyoke and CV joint were worn out when I got it, but the truck has a total of 260km on it, so they lived as long as expected. I just had the rear shaft rebuilt and they lengthen it one inch. You should be good with the stocker. Back to the carrier bearing. My rig is an extracab shortbox and it doesnt have one. It is a one peice driveshaft. The two peice shaft uses a carrier bearing.

Every truck is different but you should be foine with just a carrier drop..We have a great 8" kit with 4 link arms..also full coilover front rear 4 link if you want a killer kit..
