Had this happen several times on an old Dodge I had years ago. Fixed it by re-arching the springs for lift and using a longer tailshaft.
    This HAS happened to me. Which is why one of my next mod's is leaf springs.

    You're better off asking on a Ford Forum or a Bronco Forum. But I'd assume not. I have the stock driveshaft on my 2 door with my 6inch lift. Eventually, I'll have some custom drive shafts made up, but for now it'll be fine
