Agreed. The 4" kit should come with a transfer case drop bracket that will help in keeping your rear pinion lined up properly. Some people have had to get a SYE and CV driveshaft to eliminate driveline problems though. Take a look at the lift kit review thread that is a sticky on the top of this forom topic. Good luck with your install and welcome to the forum.

Thank you for your help this has helped me alot. Do driveline problems occur frequently with 4'' lifts though or is it pretty rare for it to happen?

I just got a 4" pro comp lift and I HAD to get a sye kit and a custom cv driveline installed... and the 2.5 degree wedge that came with the lift wasn't enough, had to have that configured as well in order to get the right pinion angle!
Not saying you need to do the same, but be prepared to spend the extra clams in case you do need to do the upgrades...

I've got a 4" RC lift with a 1" RC lift shackle with no SYE just a t-case drop and I haven't had any issues.
