6 inch lift how to.

I recently purchased an almost new 6 inch suspension lift for my 98 dodge ram 1500 with a 318 and an automatic transmission. The lift is all suspension with no blocks, I currently have a three inch lift on it. My question is where could I get longer drive shafts to fit the lift? Or should I get length added on at a machine shop? It's a single cab short bed, so I was thinking if I got a long bed drive shaft, would that work? Also my front end seems like it has death wobble but my friend told me that it is from the angle of my front drive shaft being angled to much? Any ideas?

I'm going to put this in the 2nd Gen Ram forum since it's a question, and not an actual How-to write up.

Good luck with your project.

With a 6inch lift i would not think you would longer drive shaft. Maybe an index kit for the tcase, but ive been out of the 4 wheel drive game for about a year now so im a little rusty, been into lowering and hooking

So a transfer case lowering kit might do it? But wouldn't that only help the front axle?

What kind of problems are you having? I wouldn't think with just a 6inch lift your rear driveshaft would have an extreme angle

Well right now I have a three inch on and there is a rotation problem somewhere in my front end, sorta like the cursed death wobble but it only does it at 42 mph. Nothing after or before I figured if the angle was to steep already I would need longer shafts.
