2in Lift w/ SYE

Good Morning,

I am going to be removing my 4in Rough Country lift (save the lecture).

Anyways i am going to be going to a 2in BDS or OME lift hereein the next few months. For the time being would i be ok running factory OEM control arms with the 2in lift and a SYE?

I tink my driveshaft length won't be to bad i'm sure worried about the pinion angle.

Thoughts/Advice thank you.

No, the CV shaft pinion angle will require different alignment than the stock shaft.

You can align the pinion and keep the factory arms, but you will need to cut the control arm brackets off the axle and re-weld them into a new position which will allow proper pinion angle alignment. It's a lot easier to just buy the adjustable arms...

With the CV shaft you'll want the pinion pointing right at the back of the transfer case. That won't be possible for you to achieve with 2" spings on solid arms that are built for 4" springs. Like Unlimited said, you should pick up some Adjustable Control Arms to dial in the pinion angle. This will ensure you don't have any vibs and your u-joints survive.

Let me know if you have questions or would like a quote on some arms!

The great debate continues:
2in BDS lift has been ordered. I currently have the 4in RC arms installed and I need to pull the trigger on new rear control arms.

The major difference I see between RokmenHD and Currie is the rokmen uppers are adjustable while both ends are installed. They appear to have the same ends.

My choices below.

Front:
Factory Upper/Lower with new rubber bushings.

Rear Choices:

Metal Cloak (2-3 week lead time for shipping)
Adj Lower $269
Adj Upper: $239

Currie (from the Rokmen website):
Adj Lower $319
Adj Upper: $279

Rokmen (from the Rokmen website):
Adj Lower $299
Adj Upper: $299

JKS (from the Rokmen website):
Adj Lower $319
Adj Upper: $279

The Currie aluminum arms are available as double adjustables also.

Any real advantage to those besides weight?

Im going with Metalcloak adjustable arms they have the duroflex which is smoother than J/J.

Is there any downside to having rubber on one end and JJ on the otehr (i.e. JKS).

I have narrowed it down to the JKS or Savvy aluminuum double adjustable with JJ at both ends.
