Well then your fist mod should be to ditch the worthless TC drop buy a UCF Ultra High Clearance Transfercase skid, SYE/CV driveshaft and adj. rear UCA's. This will transform your rig from a low riding earth scraper to a high clearance stump jumper.

You must have rear UCA's to adj pinion angle for the CV driveshaft

Then you have no idea why you need either the SYE or CV Shaft nor what their purpose is. Read this to figure that out:

What is a CV shaft and why do I want one? - JeepForum.com

You'll definitely need adjustable rear upper control arms, and if you want to correctly set things up you'll want to get the rear lower arms as well.

When I did my 3" suspension lift I started with adjustable lower front/rear CAs. After the install I realized adjustable upper front/rear CAs were in order.

Adjustable lower CAs and factory upper CAs:
You can shorten the lower CAs to tune in the pinion angle. Depending on your lift, I'm not sure if you can shorten them enough. However, you're shortening your wheelbase in the process. Which is pulling the front tires into the rear of the wheel well. When you're flexing and got the steering wheel turned you may rub.

Adjustable upper and lower CAs
Now you can tune in your pinion angle and correct for wheelbase.

My suspension came with replacement LCA's both front and back. I currently have HD adjustables up front but the stocks in the back

Hey Guys, I have another question.
I'm installing the AA SYE / TW DS package from Savvy.

Currently have an RC adjustable trackbar on the rear. Will I need to modify this with the SYE/DS installation. I thought I read some where that I might need to do something like add a relocation bracket or something due to interferrence issues?

You need adjustable control arms, but as to requiring a relocation bracket for the track bar. Haven't heard of that, though I have only done my own and don't have a rear track bar anymore. If you have to point your pinion up alot I could see how it would put a twist on your trackbar bushings.

Typically your trac bar will get put into a bind, so a bracket is required. You can always see how it is after you adjust for your pinion angle, but I'm guessing it will get in a bind at some point. I've got a bracket on mine for now, but my next step is to 4-link the rear and get rid of the trac bar completely.

So after I get pinion angle set, I'll need to pull coils and check at full bump for binding?
If it does is there a certain trackbar/bracket recommendation?

I'm a big fan of the Johnny Joint, and as such I'd recommend the new trac bar from Currie/Savvy. You can read about it here:

New Design Rear Track Bar! - JeepForum.com

The bracket it comes with needs to be welded on (I believe) but you can't get a better trac bar than that IMO.

I saw the TB but did not see the bracket on their site? Is there a PN fir the bracket?

Did you read through that thread? I only say that because I believe that question was asked and answered there. If I find it I'll link it here. But, I'm sure you are able to; if you call or email Gerald at Savvy or someone over at Currie they could hook you up.

I can't say for sure, but I would guess you could even use the standard bolt on bracket you can buy separately on Currie or Savvy's site if you are unable to weld.

Also keep in mind both of the brackets I talked about are to be used with a Johnny Joint so if you are planning on using another trac bar (other than the Currie one) you may need to use a different bracket depending on the width of the joint/bushing.

Thanks geiman,
I emailed Gerald and he recommended the CE-9123 which I think has the bolt on bracket??

I'll see if the RC has interference issues first.

To the guys that did the SYE, with the trans case still in the jeep. Can I leave the skid plate installed or does it need to come off? If it needs to come off, where do you support the tranny at? Where the bell housing mates to the engine block? Thanks for your help.

I took the skid plate off; it takes an extra 5 minutes to do so and gives you much more room, I don't think I'd want to leave it on.

To support everything, I typically put a jack stand in the area you described.

x2. I removed my t-case though. As it is even easier when you have it on a workbench. Also check that you can shift it into every position before you seal it up and then again before you fill it with oil. You don't want to find out you put something on wrong/backwards and it doesn't shift into 4wd after you filled it with oil.
