Questions about 1 ton swap

I already have the 10.25 for the rear. I believe its out of a '91 so i know its short pinion. What all do i need to convert to long pinion?

I plan to run aprox 9" of lift. I'm planning to go with a 6" lift spring and a shackle flip. Will i need to run a shim block for pinion angle?

I plan on Cage Radius arms for the D60. Any advice for these? They have those weld on brackets...How do i know where to weld them on?

With the 9" lift and the one ton axles what will be the strongest option for drive shafts?

Thats what i was leaning towards but I'm looking for others thoughts.
Theres a 1350 yoke made for the NP205 right? Will i need a CV in it? Do they make a CV for the 1350? I recall reading somewhere that they don't?
yes they make a 1350 yoke for the 205, spicer also has a 1410 yoke for the 205. the 1410 yoke can be found on a 89-93 dodge 4x4 cummins. if you do want the 1410 joints go find a used drive shaft off a wrecked superduty. i picked one up off a 06 for $50! and than the yoke for the t case was around $75. and flange style yoke for the axle was $20 used. i just welded up my own rear shaft for now.. i have enough flex in my driveshaft with the 1410. but i have a longer wheelbase so the joint at the tcase is the one you will have to worry about..

also when you put in the new gears you will have to upgrade to the 92 and up yoke. most aftermarket gearsets are for the long pinion.
