Justin i will vouch for ballistic. bought some RC wheel spacers off of them....quick version, they messed up, and to make up for it, send me brand new spidertrax spacers, a free tshirt and a bunch of decals.....i would buy from them again.

jeepluvr71 Thanks for the info. I looked at it this weekend and it seems to be ok. Just can't figure out what the clicking noise is when its cold. Could it be the limited slip diff making the noise? Makes noise going strsight and in a turn. Or could it be the parking brake adjustment mechanism? Just trying to get an idea(s) where to look.

daggo66 You heard incorrectly about the drive shafts. A 2" lift shouldn't affect them at all. Yours are fine. The issue with lifts and stock drive shafts is the CV boot. You stated that yours is intact.

jeepluvr71 Well not really wanting to cut corners.....but I did find the other company. Ballistic jeep shafts look pretty well made and can be rebuilt with new u joints.

Looked at drive shaft and the boots look good at each end with no tears and are still soft. Not dry rottedb or cracked. Heard that stock shaft lasts only about 10 to 15k after lift. Know of any good aftermarket company's out there besides tom woods or jreel? I saw one company that made them for around 270 to 300 but can't remember who they are....
Soooooo what your saying is you want to buy junk? If I was going to cut corners, the driveshaft wouldn't be my first chocie of places to do it.
