sounds like you gotta plan dude...but there are always those unpleasant surprises...have you ever thought of MORE greasable shackles...its not a bad way to spend 140 bucks for front and rear. www.northridge4x4.com has the lowest prices i've found so far, and the shackles are 5/8" lift. you may also need to consider investing in an SYE kit if you don't want to run a 1 or 2 inch t-case drop.

i can save you a little money on the tom woods, actually like 200 bucks. Go and find the front driveshaft out of the newest cherokee XJ you can find, i paid 50 bucks for mine. Then take it to a driveshaft shop and have it cut and balanced to the proper length once you have your SYE in, costed me 58 bucks for this. Ended up saving me like 200 bucks so i don't need to buy a tom woods driveshaft, and its just as strong, some say they have heard of more woody shafts breaking then XJ's...something to consider.

those are the ones i bought, except i got them for 40 bucks cheaper, and northridge had them to my door in a week, which is very respectable considering it came from Washington state.

mountain offroad has an agreement with thier retailers, meaning that more cant undersell the shops they sell to!
everything mountain offroad sells is available at northridge4x4.com the same parts only cheaper..compare and see for yourself.
most manufacturers have this agreement, otherwise they wouldn't be able to get and keep retailers for the products they make. so 99% of the time, its cheaper to goto a retailer than the manufacturer....and the warranty is exactly the same.
