    I'm already planning on a longer driveshaft because the stock length is probably 1.5" too short now with the lift and you can see where the shaft has backed out in my pictures. But I hadn't thought about the u-joints binding during suspension articulation. Thanks for that.

    I' in the process of a SOA / YJ spring converstion on my 73 cj, and i am also working through some of these same issues. Forgive me if this has already been answered, but i have some concerns with the concept of dropping the transfer case. Wont that put stress on the drive train from the motor mounts back? My rear pinon is tilted 20deg now, and the 1.5" Tranfer case drop that comes with the kit would be very close to correcting the geometry, im just concerned about any negative effects dropping the tranfer case might have elsewhere.

    Thanks!
