Teraflex Budget Boost

Do I need a t-case drop with the budget boost? It is a 1.5-2 lift. My friend just put one on and his front end is lower than the back. Do I need to get the 3/4 inch spacers to make up for it? What is the highest lift that can be done without doing all the other things like the t-case drop. More for intimadation than off-roading.

Hey, I put the budget boost on my grnd ch 2000 and nothing else. I got about 2 inches and only one problem. When braking between 55-40 (especially off the interstate) My jeep trembles really bad. The only way I can prevent it is to tap the brakes. It looks level (Jeep put it on) I wouldnt trust anyone else around here. I dont know why yours is uneven or if you need a t-case. I think I just need some new suspension

All TJ's are designed to be lower in the front. Just go out and measure the side of your jeep at the bottom of the rail. the frot is slightly lower than the rear. As for the budget lift you might need to lower your t-case but you probably won't know until you install it. No big deal if you have some vibration then just put about 3-5 washers in each of the 6 bolts that hold the t-case skid in place. this will lower your t-case 3/8 to 1/2 inch and this should solve any problem. Lift kit and washers takes less than 2 hours to install.

If you lower your tcase, you gotta change the angle of your pinion. The tcase and pinion yokes must be parallel if you're not running a CV.
