TC drop

Did a TC drop till I do a MML later on.
The angle looks pretty good.

Honestly I am unsure, seems like since I put 4 new tires and the BB it doesnt make any of the same noises it did before all of that.
this morning as I idled to a stop it seemed like there was a slight lope like one tire is oval instead of round in the rear.

Just out of curiosity...the MML(paired with the 1.25" BL of course) allows you to completely remove the TC drop? seems like the MML doesnt make as drastic a change as the TC drop does. Wonderin if just changing the ujoints at the same time would help as well. Or of course just do it the more expensive route and SYE, DS, and adjustable rear uppers i suppose. Any advantage to the SYE other then just stoppin vibes an correcting pinion angle? Like strength?

SYE & CV on a jeep with a 2" BB seems kind of silly doesn't it?

I had serious vibes with just a 2" BB. I installed a 1" TC drop to get rid of the vibes - this worked. I have however since removed the TC drop since I installed a 1.25" BL and 1" MML - the vibes are still gone and I have the clearance under my skidplate back. The MML tilts the motor much more than you would think and makes a huge difference to the driveshaft angle.
