06 TJ Rubi transfer case question

I recently installed a 1" M.O.R.E motor mount lift with their 1" BL. They are solid products, would recommend. Anyways, I came across a slammin deal near my house for a rear CV drive shaft that happened to be the direct bolt on for TJ rubicons.

My question is- can I, once the CV shaft is on, raise my transfer case back to its original seating (I dropped it when I installed the 3.5" short arm RE suspension lift) without any major problems?

Once all this is done I will be looking to venture into a tummy tuck (I'm pretty sick of the turtle shell hanging under my belly) can I get some advice on Do's and Don'ts and maybe some recommendations.

Thanks

you will need to setup the axle position for the lift....and adjust pinion angle as part of that. requires adjustable upper and lower control arms.

I have adjustable control arms, upper and lower. So I should raise the transfer case and then set the angle/axle position

I have yet to crawl under and start the swap. It's the "1310 series CV socket flange that bolts directly to the original equipment mass vibration dampener hub/flange"

I believe it's http://www.quadratec.com/products/52301_910_07.htm exact one. Does height matter?

Absolutely height matters. Your lift and a TT if you do one change the length of the driveshaft. Think back to high school and the pythagorean theorem.

Ahh I see. Makes sense. As you raise the TC, the drive shaft needs to increase in length. Thanks
