Rough Country 4 inch X Lift

So I finished installing the kit on the TJ.

Everything went great. Except:

1. I get a vibe when accelerating, even at 20 MPH (I did not do a SYE or TC drop yet). I have the TC drop just didn't put it in yet. Yes, I will eventually do a SYE combo on there. I need someone to tell me whether the lack of a TC is what I'm feeling. I DO NOT FEEL THE VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL. It's hard for me to say where it's coming from, but the steering wheel is not shaking/vibrating. I think it only happens when accelerating, because when I let off the gas pedal it stops.

2. My steering wheel is about 20 degrees to the right. Do I just adjust the drag link to fix that?

Thanks for all help in advance.

Awesome. Is there any possibility that the vibration is coming from elsewhere?

Nope, sounds like a driveline vibe to me. Time for SYE.

Go with the SYE/CV and never look back. Be sure to get a Tom Wood's driveshaft though...it's great How's your pinion angle?

Without a SYE, it should be flat or very close to it.

You will probably need a drop bracket if you don't have a BL with one.Quadratec sells some for $15-20.
SHIFT LINKAGE ADJUSTMENT
Shift transfer case into 4L position. (make sure your shifter is fully in the 4L position)

Loosen lock bolt on adjusting trunnion

Be sure linkage rod slides freely in trunnion.

Clean rod and apply spray lube if necessary.

Verify that transfer case range lever is fully
engaged in 4L position. (you can do this under the vehicle at the transfer case)

Tighten adjusting trunnion lock bolt.

Why not just do the SYE and driveshaft? I know it's more expensive, but you'll lose ground clearance that you gained by lifting the jeep? Unless you are trying to just get up and running till you can do the SYE/CV?

I know. That is exactly what I'm doing. Just buying some time until I can get a SYE/CV. Thanks all for the quick responses. Onto the TC drop
