Can I add a set of boomerang shakles and get a slight 1 1/2 lift without doing any other mods?
I was hoping to get just a slight lift with a greasable fitting for the obvious reasons.

Yes, they are about that much longer than your stock shackles and abit stronger.

I couldnt figure out in my head why not . Seems like a good safe upgrade lift without messing with the center of gravity to much .

I wonder at what heigth I should worry about doing a transfer case drop and would it benefit from it if I did it anyways?

I'm pretty sure it's about 3 inches that you need to look into a t-case drop. Someone correct me if I'm wrong :)

Just depends on the kit. My Rubicon Express 2.5" lift kit actually yields 3.25" of lift when it was all said and done. It came with a transfer case drop in the kit. You just have to experiment, but I would say 3" would require a t-case drop just to be safe, if you don't go sye.
