My buddy has a 93 s10 with a 4 inch lift. 2 inch body and 2 inch suspension on stock shaft. It would slowly leak fluid because it was too short.

How high you planning on lifting it? Body lifts don't count. They don't change any suspension geometry. I have probably 6 inches of lift in the rear with no problems on the stock shaft.
