A buddy of mine just threw a 6 in lift on his 78 Cevy, half ton, standard cab shortbed. One small problem he ran into ( or at least he thought he ran into) is that the kit rotated his rear axle up, so he has an almost 0 degree angle, but on the front, it seems to be too extreme. He was thinking about rotating the front axle too, but realized that would screw up his steering. Was wondering if anyone knew whether or not his front driveshaft would work, or if he needs to do something to it, to make the angle less. If it helps, his front axles are off of a k10 Blazer, he's running 4.56 gears front and rear, Detroit lockers front and rear, and 37 12.50 Wrangler MTRS on a 15X10 rim.

Its a couple different things to look at. First you could get degree wedges for the front and that would help the front angle. Shouldn't mess steering up. Next, if the kit come with a T-Case drop kit, then take the kit out and put T-Case back stock, and see what it looks like. As far as the rear, if he installed blocks, then the blocks are cut on an angle to correct pinion angle. The angle on the front has to be pretty bad to do damage, Usually the CV joint, (T-Case & Front Driveshaft) will give you problems first.
