how does this drive line angle look?

i finished installing my 4" rubicon express springs yesterday (lifted the truck almost 7") and put in a warrior products transfer case drop today (1.5" drop), as well as brake lines and working on a pitman arm tomorrow.

heres a pic of the driveline it seems pretty bad to me but this is the first yj ive done so im not sure, what do you all think, will i have issues driving?

That does not look good... Pitch the front of your differential upward using shims.. It will improve the angle alot and help push that shaft back into the Tcase alittle.. https://www.quadratec.com/products/p...h.php?kw=shims


Here's a pic of mine with a 4" springlift and 1" shackle.. I'm not using a SYE kit and have no vibration issues at all and have plent of engagement into the Tcase..

looking at the pics of your springs vs. mine im thinking it shows you have much less arch than me, i belive the only proper fix here is a sye.

Looks really bad! Don't mess around. Install a sye and cv drive shaft. Money spent up front will save you in the long run.

And i agree... I didn't say not to do an SYE just simply pitch the rear diff so you can drive it if needed without the risk of breaking u-joints left and right.... I would not drive it the way it is now.. If it's not a daily driver and you can afford the down time then yes, SYE kit is what you need...

Oh and give your springs a little time, they will lose some arch as mine have..

That stuff will get you pulled apart on your first serious trail. "Yanked Apart," is a more appropriate description.

Better have a lift and wench.

That looks pretty severe to me, but I'm no expert.
