You will also need adjustable rear upper control arms with the SYE to dial in your pinion angle. Maybe the TC drop too, depending on if you get vibrations at all.

Anything over 3" lift you should and will need a SYE and CV driveshaft. If your jeep is stock then you would have regular driveshaft, the only jeep that wouldn't would be a Rubicon. A TC drop would be a last resort if you can not pay for a SYE/CV. The TC will lower your clearance and you would most likely still get vibes if it is not setup to the right measurements.
Here's a picture to help you out on a CV vs Stock driveshaft. CV is the top one and stock is bottom.

You will probably need a transfer case drop kit.

I'm looking at buys a 4" OME lift for my 2001 sahara. Will I need a new driveshaft due to the amount of lift? I know there are a few different driveshafts in the different tj models, but I honestly don't know how to tell what's what. If someone could tell me how to figure that out I'd be glad to tell y'all.
