The problem isn't going to be falling out... see, the rear end goes forward when you lock a car up, so if the driveshaft is too long, it pushes too far into the tranny and damages it... I would at least have it shortened... but preferrably, use a slip yoke at the back of the driveshaft.

Im sure this has been covered before but my search isnt turning up anything.
I am doing a hidden setup in my 67. Going for a 70s style lifts setup using flipped 8" in the rear (nothing in the trunk). But how do you flip cylinders in the front? Is it a small coilover? is it strong enough to lift...
over the years layitlow has seen this question 1000x's. do skirts fit on a lifted impala....this could be a thread dedicated to skirt clearance issues. and make it easier on the backyard builder to find parts for his project. there are few options available.
1. narrow stock rear end
I have a regal -78 /g-body with telescopic pistons in the rear, I am afraid that I will damage the gearbox if I drive the car in locked up or three wheeling it when driving. (Even if I don’t drive crazy high in any way.)
Now to my question, is it enough to shorten the drive shaft...
