Their oem I have two cherokees so I know when you lift them you will get driveline vibes,broken shafts or even at full flex pulls the shafts out if you don't extend sye and tc drop but the libertys at ifs so the drive shaft angle isn't changing at all only the cv axles angles are changing. I'm not gonna claim I'm a certified mech but I do knw my ways around a vehicle especially a jeep and this is got stomp
