lift ???

i have an 88 YJ, 4.2l, auto tranny. i have a 1" shackle lift, 3.5" superlift springs, and a transfer case lowering kit. i am running 35" tires on my d30 and 8.8 (4:10's). i also have a stock rear driveshaft, and a tj front shaft w/ cv joint.

i was wondering if i put on some 5" springs, instead of my 3.5" ones. will i have to lengthen my driveshafts???

i am prob going SYE this fall and prob SOA next year when i buy a new to me jeep!!!

my drive shaft angles look fine, not too steep, i am wanting to get a bit more lift for this summer. i hate getting cought up!!!!!!

thanks for all of your input

you will probably need to put on an SYE kit with a CV driveshaft. go for BDS 5" lift, i got mine, they look unbelievable.

i was thinking that i would need one, but it is only 1 1/2" more of a lift. i wouldn't figure that would change the DS angles too much.

my buddy has a 3.5" lift and has a t-case drop, and he may get 5" springs and needs an SYE kit, usually the rule of thumb is anything over 4" lift, it isn't a bad idea to do. You can get the CV rear driveshaft out of a new XJ and have it cut to length. Shouldn't be more then 50 for the shaft and 50 to have it modified.
