Lift Kit DriveShaft

when lifting a truck is there anything you have to do with the drive shafts? or only after the trucks a certain height?

It really depends on how high your lifting the truck.

Now I have heard people having to shim a carrier bearing even when only going with a 2 inch or 3 inch lift. I have heard from others they did nothing with that small of a lift.

But you should not have to worry about your driveshaft till you go 6 or more inches.

Well I know for fact at 4inches or more you need to shim the carrier bearing.
