front driveshaft with bigger lift kit.

Hey guys. I have a 6" lift with the Dana 60 up front so I figure I have about 8" up front. Well I can't drive faster then 40 km without my front driveshaft chunking and ratcheting in 4x4. Is my only option a f350 driveshaft with the double u joint, Or an expensive aftermarket driveshaft with a cv joint.

A f-350 driveshaft should fix your problem. The double joint is in the back. If there is still some noise/vibration, I'd suggest to shim the leaf springs to change the angle of the diff, so the front joint will have less angle.

I did this on a Excursion at my shop. It has a 10" lift kit. Both diff are more angled than stock, and we had a double joint installed in the rear.

By tilting my front diff won't that mess with the steering rod. As well I didn't think the track bar would allow it to tilt.

How would one go about clearancing the yoke? I've never heard about doing this before.
