The rear leafs are shimmed, so it will angle up some, use the t-case drop, and if you really need to, the motor mount lift, but I don't think that will be necessary. One reason why some people experience vibes is because the driveshaft needle bearings do tend to wear a certain way when driven at that angle for a long period of time, and in worse case you can just replace a u joint or motor mount lift. But your angles should be fine. Installing a t-case lowering kit and the shims will get you right where you want to be. No Worries! It is an excellent riding suspension, better than stock ride, excellent articulation, and it will boost your rig up min. 2.5 inches higher than stock. (my driveshaft has 274,000 miles on it original, and I did not experience any vibes at all after install. It is perfect. (just when time and money allows, later on down the road, go ahead and get the sye kit if you want)

Here is the ARB application guide for their YJ products, including their Old Man Emu Springs.

no difference, I have a spare set of 14 out back of my house, I am now SOA and the 14 wont hold that, I changed for the 36R, 5 pack and run those front and rears and wuold recommend to ANYONE do the same, I ran 14 on the front for years and the flex was MAD, I never nor do I now have a winch, but soon as I wnet SOA the 14 started to sag... so I ordered 2 new 36R for the front and problem solved....

just get the 36 and be done, the ride is STILL uber nice

Started with some rust repairs ended in a SOA...
