Question deaver install

I have a deaver g50 pack w/camburg shackles, 14in fox remo. resi's, top spring shock mounts, dixon bros bed cage. So....my truck has a 3in spindle lift w/2in blocks in the rear. i know about flipping the stock shackle mount. the deavers are supposed to have 1.5in lift in them.....so here is my ? is there anything that needs to be done to either the 3rd member or the drive shaft in order to do a proper install or can i just put it all together and be good? sorry for the rambling wanted to let you know what i had to get a good answer. any comments or advice would be helpful. THANKS

rear shafts are generally good up to about 9" lift or so. **Include stock blocks in that number too.

I was helping a friend get his rear suspension done for his solid axle swap on his '07.......Grand total of about 15" total rear lift and the shaft halves finally popped apart. lol. Needless to say, he didn't drive his truck for about a month because he didn't think about shaft length.
