Why can't you lower a 4wd with a 4x6 kit?

Ive searched around and have never really found a definite answer. What would prevent anyone in doing this?

I would think it has to do a lot with the front driveshaft angle. It's a much shorter shaft and can not handle the angles that the rear can.

Hahaha, yeah I got and still get those responses. I am just going by all the lift kits I've installed over the years, but the front shaft is always much less forgiving and is usually the limiting factor when picking a kit. You can always have a new shaft made up so that you can lower or lift your truck more, just costs to get a good one made.
