Need some help with lift and transfer case questions..

Im planing on getting a 4inch IRO long arm lift i know the basics around it well most of them i need help info on the transfer case. I know i can ether drop the TC or can get a SYE and CV drive shaft. I need more specifs though. Like if i were to go the drop i would need to angle the axle...well i dont know about a 4inch lift if i would. That aside I rather just go the SYE path so what else do i need and/or need to do? From the ground up all the detail possible would be great.

Most likely the TC drop won't be enough. It depends on the jeep though. I used a TC drop and I still get vibes around 45-55mph.

If you go the SYE path, either full or HnT, you'll need the CV style shaft like you said. For best results you want the angle of the rear pinion to be in line with the shaft itself, or a couple degrees down to compensate for the changes when apply power to the axle
