Running the RE3.5 with no SYE/CV DS, does anyone do this?

I just bought the RE 3.5 superflex with shocks , front/rear adj trackbar, front/ rear lower CA ,f/r sway links and front upper control arms ( no rear uppers), 1.25 BL / 1" MML
I cant afford the sye/cv right now but eventually plan on it. My buddy will install it for me next saturday but i want to make sure i will not have bad vibes, I already have a 1.5" tcase drop on it.
Also i heard that I am required to have rear upper CA's if i have now SYE?CV is this true? the person i bought this kit from didnt

The previous owner installed it because he said he got vibes at 50mph , it probably didnt need that much of a drop though

Im not doing the SYE/CV kit anytime soon,, my kit is to be installed next week, currently i have no vibes because the tcase was dropped for the 2"BB because there was vibes

every jeep is different.

if you had vibes at 2" and needed drop to fix it, 1.5" more of lift is going to give you vibes again.

I know thats why i bought the MML hoping to prevent that, i guess ill just have to see what happens.
So it is not necessary for rear upper control arms for the install?

I just installed my 3.5 lift today and have a 1" t/c drop in it have a slight vibe at about 30-35 mph. You may want to just keep the transfer case drop in that you have now, But Your defiantly going to need the sye/cv kit for sure. I have to wait a month or two for the combo myself (wife got sticker shock from the price of lift wheels and tires) As far as rear upper control arms I've read they help with the pinion angle with cv driveshafts not sure if they help with the stock driveshaft at all (getting the vibe to go away)

Do you correct pinion angle even with a stock drive shaft? I have vibes but will not be able to afford a SYE for a few months. Will installing and adjusting upper control arms help a little even with the stock shaft.
