No you wont have to buy new driveshafts if you have a slip yoke but make sure when you install it to check the angle of the pinion to transmission to make sure it will not bind if it does bind you can buy blocks to tilt the axle so that it wont bind

You need to use a shaft stretcher. The transmission goes up in the air higher but the rear end stays stationary. If you can get a longer yoke it may work, but go to a transmission shop to have them stretch your shaft.
