do you think my stock driveshaft will be allright if i lock up the rear end with 12" cylinders? I've heard it might fall out? It's a 66 chevy caprice / impala. what do you all think?

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.
