    i settled this problem already and was told to get spacers. the angle of the driveshaft to the rear diff is too steep and runs a little ruff. if i get bigger tires will this settle the problem? i've got 32's and was planning perhaps 33' if that would fix the problem. thanks in advance.

    Larger/smaller tires will not affect your driveshaft angle. I wonder if they meant flat spacers in between your springs and axle to raise the axle, but this would effectivly reduce your lift. Your best option is to get a doube cardan CV rear shaft and point the pinion at the tcase. It might just be that your u-joints are gone and need replacing.
