6" INCH LIFT AND DRIVESHAFT REPLACEMENT

I am installing a 6" lift in my Excursion shortly and was wondering about the driveshaft length and vibration.I read some people change them out for a driveshaft with a cv in it and others have no issues.For those of you that added lift did you change the shaft or leave it alone?Looking for some input.

Ive been wondering the same thing about the one piece drive shafts, I have a 6" lift on mine and have never bee able to get it as smooth as it was stock and I have the pmf adjustable bracket for the carrier bearing, don't get me wrong this is an extremely well built piece and I had great customer service, but I still havent gotten it dialed in perfectly. The drive shaft super store has a special right now forany lengh drive shaft up to 60" for only $245, seems like a good deal but arent ours longer then that?

Think they are.Some people have been fine with the angled blocks.i have also heard of some with the cardon joint in it and saw my first one today in a gas engine at work.Might research that a little.

Went with the 4" instead.It runs great rides great and didn't require any driveshaft work.Put the add-on block in with the 4" block I had and is perfect,
Even got rid of the vibration I had before.
