I am a newbie so I hope I am posting correctly.
I have a 98 TJ with 33" tires, 4" Trailmaster lift, SYE, newly installed G2 Dana 44 (456 gears) in the rear. I am waiting for a Tera belly up transfer case so I installed rear adj upper control arms to adjust the angle of the rear diff to avoid driveshaft angle vibes.
1. My shocks have less than 2" of the piston showing so I am close to bottoming out the shock. I traded the Trailmaster SSV for Skyjacker Nitro 8000 and it didn't help much. (I guess it is good to have plenty of travel left)
2. My Warn Gas Tank skip plate hits my larger than usual G2 Dana 44 differential with 2 people in the back seat. The angle change on the diff looks like it reduced the space a bit between the tank and diff.
I have read and re-read numerous articles on BL vs Coil Spring lift but am still confused as to which would further separate the gas tank from the diff.
Any advice on how to avoid shock bottom out and gas tank hitting the diff?
PS Body currently looks level with empty rear seats but maybe "a bit" lower on the rear. One person drops the back a lot so maybe the Trailmaster springs are too soft?
