MGW + Lowering + 4" Driveshaft?

I was wondering if anyone knows if a MGW will clear a 4"DS with the car being lowered?

That's the one I'm looking at. Your lowered? How much? Do you have the heat shield on the MGW?

Quick review of the shaft? Operation/ Install?

Thanks a lot

1.4 front, 1.5 rear.
If you get the loop, you will need 5 stands or two ramps and 3 stands. More a pain to use ramps if you e already lowrred.
I am lazy and don't trust my work. Had a shop do the ds when they did the suspension.
Spins up nicely. And no clank noise when starting from a standstill
I did get the heat shield. Even still, there is more heat around the shifter than before

Thanks for the info. What loop do you have?

What else has you done to the suspension? Like UCA/ LCA

Hopefully you have the axle exchange 4" that am is currently selling...

I posted a thread 'small upgrade. Installed' which had the list. Basically overhauled the whole thing.

Ds purchase was recent, I don't suppose they have changed
