I just inherited my father's 05 Yukon and I'm putting a three to three and a half inch lift on it and I need longer or better CV axles and angles I've read on other posts that 07 CV axles are longer and they will fit 2000 to 2005 Tahoe/Yukon for better angles and they're about a 1-1¹/⁴ longer. Has anyone done this or heard about it also? Or should I get 1in CV axles spacers. I will also be going with lifted upper control arms also.

I have a 6.5" lift which uses spacers and a diff drop. Use the spacers. On the pickups, a 4 inch lift is better than 3".

The longer cv axles from the 07+ will give you better cv angles than using a cv spacer will.

Yes both are 33 spline 6 bolt everything is the same except compressed length is roughly 1.3-1.5 inches longer. lengths in both generations vary slightly depending on brands
