if you have a SYE why not just take off the lowering kit and seeing how that drives. From my knowledge there's no real reason to have both.

Well you would still need the TC drop if you don't have adjustable rear control arms. You need adjustable upper rear control arms to properly set the pinion angle to be in line with the drive shaft. I have a SYE with CV shaft, but because I haven't spent the money for new control arms, I need to use a 1" TC drop to take away vibrations

Do you have adjustable upper control arms in the rear? If so, you should be able to use them to adjust the pinion angle with the TC drop removed. If you don't have adjustables you'll have to leave the TC drop until you install adjustables.

It's weird, I have the adj lowers and uppers but for some reason now with the tc drop out I'm having problems with my front driveshaft hitting the front of the cross member...
