currie 4" lift and tt, what should I be aware of

Hello all,
I have been trying to figure out my build for sometime now, and have come to the conclusion that the currie lift is the way I want to go as it seems to be quality with very few drawbacks if any. So, if I do the currie lift, will I have any problems with furthering my build of a TT. I beleive that I will have to then do a BL with a MML, but think I am fine with that. I have read about a skid without the requirements of a BL and MML, but can anyone tell me anything else that I should think of down the road on my build that I may be overlooking with the currie short arm lift that will require me to go with something other than the currie. Thanks.

Currie 4" lift that is.

make sure you get their longer control arms for the t.t. I think there is a thread about this somewhere.

I must not have searched the right words, but at somepoint I remember hearing that there was an issue with them and they weren't that much longer than the stock arms. Do you have options of the length of the adjustable arms. I am a newbie for sure and appreciate any help anyone can give.

Running 4" Currie lift, with Nth Belly skid and have no problems with the standard length control arms that come with the kit. Set it up correctly and it's fine.

The Currie arms are fine. Most people try to make them longer to center the wheel in the wheel well. The arms are designed so that the wheel will be centered in the well at full stuff, right where it should be.

You most likely will need to do something about your rear shocks too, when you adjust your rear pinion for a TT. The shock bodies tend to hit the lower spring perches. You can flip your shocks, buy extensions, have new mounts welded on your axle, grind some clearance in your perches or do a shock outboard fab job to address this. Also, your rear trackbar mount might have to be upgraded to one for the pinion adjustment when you twist the axle. Oh yeah, I ended up needing longer than normal upper arm length when putting in my rear adjustable upper control arms.

I put the currie 4 inch kit on the unlimited, you will love it. It flexed really well right out of the box. The control arms are the correct length, the problem people have is when they try to center the wheels at ride height. This makes the rear tire hit the rear of the wheel opening before it bottoms out. here is mine with a 1.25 bl added.

I did buy a double cardan rear driveshaft, i didnt really need it, but i felt it would be a good investment since my u joints werent all that great in my factory driveshaft. I am pretty sure ill need it once i get a TT.
