|oIIIIIIo||Mine was vibrating with only 3" lift. If you don't want to do the tc drop then you would have to install a mml and bl.|

|siafu||I got the vibes on my 3" lift. Slight vibes from 32-35mph and then they are gone. I am going to add 1 a washer to the existing TC drop and see if that fixes it. If not, I am going to do the SYE deal.|

That tall of a lift on a short wheelbase Wrangler TJ should indeed be causing drivetrain vibrations from excessive angles at the u-joints on the rear driveshaft. Those vibes, if they are allowed to continue, will eventually start taking out things like the driveshaft u-joints, seals, and/or bearings.
Those are the types of vibrations that cannot be ignored. And with 3.5" of lift, I would expect some pretty good vibes in the absense of either a t-case drop or SYE kit and CV drivshaft.

What I was really concerned about is no knowing if the spacers were a "must install" thing to protect U-Joints or something??

I got vibes with my short 2" suspension lift.

You installed a 3.5" suspension lift and there are no drivetrain vibrations? None at all? For a Wrangler TJ, that would be extremely surprising.
Do you by any chance drive a Wrangler Unlimited?

If you're not having problems then I would say to leave it out.
Also, have you taken it up to highway speeds yet to see if vibrations kick in there?

Is it necessary to drop the TC with a 3.5" SSL
Is it really necessary to install the TC spacers after putting in my RC 3.5" suspension lift? This is all I lack before having it all done. I drove it last night around the neighborhood and didn't notice any vibes or anything out of the ordinary?
Thanks for your time and input...
