Yep, that's a balanced shaft with a hack 'n tap SYE. You may have to have the shaft lengthened when you add the lift. Other than that, it may be cheaper to order springs and shocks seperately and fill in the rest of the parts list from the junkyard.

What would you advise I pull from the junkyards? There are only around 6 yjs around me and they've all been pretty scavenged off of. ive been under the impression that the Rubicon kit had everything needed for the lift. My rear driveshaft doesn't extend at all at the moment even when the jeep is lifted up, so I think I may be able to get by without lengthening it. The front one though may be q problem

The funny thing about yj's is that you can stick a stock Cherokee pitman arm on it and it's essentially the same thing as a drop arm for the Yj. I was just suggesting a way to save money by piecing a lift together as opposed to buying a kit. You have a lot more quality control when you hand pick every part that goes on your jeep. You can build it your way. Or buy a kit.

It's your jeep.

And yeah, that front shaft looks about shot.

Thanks for that about the Cherokee, I didn't know that. I'll keep it in mind and try to piece together a list. Once I make a decision I will keep this thread updated as to the progress

Looking good! Did you go with the 4" RE springs? Looking at your Pics of the rear DS, the lift should help as your DS was close to bind on the stock springs or whatever was on there. That SYE looks similar to mine. Thats all I think they had when I did mine 16 years ago, it's still going strong as well as the CV DS ...
