4 inch lift---transfer case drop

my tj has a 4 inch lift, and the rear drive shaft angle doesnt look as good as i think it should. i have the SYE aand CV shaft already.
should i install a transfer case drop as well, or is there a problem in doing so.
should the the SYE and CV be enough??
thanks

Did you put the rear upper adjustable arm on and rock the pinion back to set the angle?

Yeah, don't just "look at it". Get an angle finder and measure your angles; set it like it's supposed to be. I keep seeing people dropping the transfer case by adding washers until it quits vibrating, or messing with the pinion angle (with a SYE and double cardan) until it quits vibrating. Just set the angles properly and be done with it. In your case with a SYE and double cardan, your pinion angle should be 1°-2° below the driveshaft angle. In other words, point the pinon straight at the transfer case output, then drop it 1-2°.

the SYE and CV driveshaft should be enough as long as it is set properly. doing so requires at least adjustable upper rear control arms, and adding adjustable rear lowers will also be useful

thanks again everyone.
i have adjustable uppers, and i will be able to sset the angle better, next week when i put the 8.8 in. i have bought the artec industries truss kit w tj swap brackets. its being welded up this week, and gears and locker installed.
i already planned on making some adjustments on the rear angle at that time, but ordered the transfer drop, and was wondering if i should install it now, and set the angle with that in the equation.. or just leave it out

thanks. i will leave it out
