TC Drop Kit ???

hello everyone quick question. i got a 4in pro-comp lift with the tc drop kit and some 33in tires when i go wheelin to lefthand canyon the only part i scrape on is the tc skid pan. My question is do i need the tc drop brackets with 4in of lift or can i get by without it so it will stop scrapin. i know i might get some vibes in the drive train but until i can get a sye will this work?

you will eat u joints pretty fast and the vibes will get annoying just as quick

other then that its not that bad, just the vibes are gonna make you angry after a very short time IMO keep the drop for now

only real way to know for sure, is the take the drop out and drive it. if you get no vibs and such, then run it. But a SYE can be bought pretty cheap anymore, and you can shorten a cherokee front shaft for your rear CV...

JB conversions SYE shipped is less than $200, and my cherokee shaft shortened and balanced was $60, plus U joints i supplied.

There are ways around the TC drop. I ran a 1 " motor mount lift and increased the angle of the wedges on the spring perches. 8 degs i believe. I was able to get rid of the tc case drop at this point and YES, 1 inch can make a big difference when your climbing over stuff. If you decide to try this i sill have those 8 deg steel shims in the basement. let me know.
Your limited slip differential sucks.
