T-case drop on a 4 banger?

I installed the Rough Country 3.25" lift kit earlier this summer, its holding out nicely. I did not install the t-case drop kit, because I wanted to see how bad the vibes were. To my surprise I experienced no vibes and decided to go without the drop kit. Its been about 2000 miles with several wheeling trips and nothing has broken. I read on some other forum that the 4bangers didn't need a t-case drop, but I don't remember where. Seems fine, I might do a MML in the near future. What say you?

If you get on vibration then leave it off. The drop is mostly installed to help drive line angles.

No vibes means no need for it.A MML can;t hurt though.

I just put the same lift on my 4 cyl, the 3.25" RC and I'm getting crazy vibes. I get a death wobble but it doesnt come at a specific speed, it could be anywhere from 10-40 mph. I never put the T-Case drop in but I think I will be in the near future. 1st and 2nd gear are also very very touchy now.

TC case drop doesn't help with death wobble, if that is what you have. TC drop helps with driveline vibes. If you have death wobble you need to be looking at components of your steering and front end.
