If you add a shackle reversal you don't have to worry about the drive shaft angle in the back. Lowering the t-case lower than an inch creates a lot of problems(engine bangs firewall, Motor mounts break, engine overheats). If you plan on lifting the back with shackles to match the front You need to invest in a slip yolk elimenater and slip shaft drive shaft. With a 4" suspension you probably need it anyway.

Shackle lifts are almost the worst thing you can do to a Jeep in my opinion. The amunt of lift you get from them isn't worth the steering issues they create, the shackles themselves get hung up on everything on the trail. Then you want to lower the transfer case even more which really negates any lift that you got to begin with. Save your money, get an SYE first, then order you a set of Alcan springs with the kift you want. They'll make from 0"-6" lift.

SYE- $350
CV Driveshaft $250
Alcans $700

Sell your Skyjackers to recover some of your costs. Or for the same money, use your stock springs and do an SOA.

Why do you need more lift?
The way you are going at it, you'll be spending the same money two or three times. Body lifts cause their own problems, 1" is OK, provides clearance for future drivetrain mods, can be compensated for with 1" motor mount lift, which will also help driveline angles, 2" marginal, some people have to trim the hole for the shifter a little to get into 2nd gear and 4lo, 3" poser lift.
If you really need 6" or more lift, SOA is your best choice with 2.5" lift springs. After that it's time to get out the sawzall and start cutting sheetmetal away for tire clearance . TJ flares will let you trim about 1" of sheetmetal away front and rear.
