for those whom have leaf springs with shackles in the rear, did you have to alter your drive shafts?

Never change the quotes, you want to change the bottom link if anything. Quotes are needed incase there are spaces in the link. Remember kids, when naming pictures or web pages, always user the underscore! _ :thumbup

You shouldn't have to change your driveshaft if you just lift it straight up, obviously. It would be no different than doing a coil lift. I guess just make sure you're measuring correctly, and if you have to move the axle at all, move it rearward to account for the extra distance the shaft has to reach. Just restating what I'm sure you know..

Yes. I had to lengthen the splines 1.5".

There are two factors for the shaft being to short; when doing the SAS, most folk will move the axle forward 1"-2", and the live axle allows for more droop.

also, running the shackles to the rear of the spring means that is the end of the spring that is moving and your pinion will drop more. i never had an issue running stiffy f350 springs but with the 52" chevy springs i had to make a long travel (square tube) for now.
