My 2-1/2" Lift kit came with like a 3/4" - 1" T-case drop. RE uses pucks and longer bolts. Others on the forum have used washers. Some of the other kits use bar stock drilled to match the bolt pattern.

Replace your u-joints and then possibly a t-case drop if the problems arent solved.
Currently not a Jeep owner.

Taking a break from the "jeep thing"

We did the T-case drop and new U-joints Thursday night. Seems the rear joint has been going for awhile. It was totally wiped. We installed the Skyjacker T-case 1 inch kit. These guys should really get thier stuff together. First when you read thru the directions it says you need washers WTF why not bump the price $3 and include them? Two trips to Home Depot then to Lowes for washers that would work.On top of that the Skyjacker decal that THEY place on the spacer is upside down! We just installed it facing in. All that said install time was like 20-25 minutes after all parts were chased down. Went so fast I only drank half a Corona installing it.
