Lift picture request and sye question

Another stupid question but can you do a sye kit without a new extended driveshaft?

I'm also pretty set on 4" lift but I haven't decided if I want to go with 1" booms or stay closer to a stock shackle length.

So could we post some picks of 5" lifts with 33.

You understand what a sye is/does? It is a slip yoke eliminator... You will need a new driveshaft. I am getting away with 4.5" RE hockey puck tcase drop and shims(forget the degree, wanna say 6.5) and no vibrations.

Redneck. My RE 4.5 kit came with the 4 degree shims. If that helps.

Like stated before sye means new drive shaft. I'm running 4" rc susp and a 1" body. Really no reason to replace shackles imo. 33" tires and a sye with Tom woods drive shaft(highly recommend).
