How far do you want to raise the belly up?

If you don't have a spring lift on the jeep, and you only want to up up an inch or two on the belly, you may not need anything else.

When you through a spring lift on there with the transfer case raised, you'll need the shaft and SYE for sure, and adjustable rear control arms to get the pinion angle set for the shaft. Double cardan shaft and the factory style single joint shafts require different pinion angles on the axle. And raising the motor a inch helps lower the angle of the transfer case a bit.

Front control arms and driveshaft shouldn't need adjusting. Mine didn't, and my spring lift is 4" and the transfer case probably went up an additional 3-4" on top of that.

As for the rear control arms, I don't know, I have adjustable uppers and lowers. I imagine you could get away with just one. If you had just one, I would guess that you would only need adjustable uppers. Not sure on that though.

I had to adjust my front pinion to cure my vibes after my tummy tuck…
