driveshaft q?

i was wondering how long driveshafts would last with a t-bar lift and 31's. i was wondering because the truck has been acting weird since i did the lift

has it been making a thud noise when you pound the throddle and felt like something was slipping?

cranking the torsion bars is not a "lift" and it will not wear out your driveshaft. Is yours even 4wd? If not, the torsion bars have nothing to do with wearing out your rear driveshaft.
