The Standard kit is a perfect entry for those looking to run 33" tires on a smaller budget. The 3.5" Standard kit includes springs, and bump stops, but maintains stock control arms and track bars. On and off road performance of this kit is excellent and is easily upgradeable to the Super-Flex kit by adding our control arms and other Super-Flex components.

* Front & Rear Coil Springs
* Front & Rear Bump Stops
* Front Sway Bar Disconnects
* Rear Sway Bar Links
* Rear Track Bar Bracket
* Transfer Case Lowering Kit
* Installation Hardware

Well at a minimum, due to the CV driveshaft you'll be installing with the SYE kit, you will also need adjustable length control arms for the rear axle. Lower adjustable control arms at a minimum but lower arms by themselves will shorten your wheelbase as you raise the pinion shaft angle. Best is adjustable length upper and lower control arms for the rear so you can properly set the pinion shaft angle while maintaining the wheelbase.

I would say if you are going with the 3.5" kit that you put it on using the Transfer Case Drop that they supply you. See if that causes you any vibrations and then if you do you can upgrade to an SYE and CV Driveshaft. Most people won't feel any issues with 3.5" and the stock Slip Yoke setup.

I run a 4 inch lift, and have had no vibrations at all...if i were you, i would save the 600 bucks at first and see if it is neccessary to put on the SYE and the Driveshaft, and if need be, then do it. But i would bet you wont need it.

I guarantee your factory driveshaft is too short for your 4" suspension lift. That's just one reason we recommend SYE kits and longer CV driveshafts for 4" and taller lifts, not just vibrations

Don't be surprised when your suspension is really flexed to find that your driveshaft has been pulled off the t-case slip joint. Worse is if it didn't come off completely and only cocked a bit, jamming itself as your suspension compresses... which is then a guaranteed bent t-case output shaft or bent driveshaft.
