TJ Suspension Lift/Drive Angle Question
I'm about to install a 3" Teraflex lift on my new 2001 TJ, I don't have much experience with the newer Jeeps so I have a question pertaining to drive line angles after the lift install. I can't afford to do the SYE yet so I am planning on doing the transfer case lowering option (I know, I know, I don't want to do it either, but I want to reduce any vibrations in my drive train until I can afford the SYE to do it right and get the most clearance from my lift). If you have done this, was it a problem to install, did it negatively affect anything on your Jeep (e.g. engine mounts due to additional stress, etc.), and was it a good temporary fix until the SYE is installed?
Also do any of you out there have a 3" lift installed without lowering the case or installing the SYE? If so, what type of vibration do you have (my main concern is a vibration that eventually wears out or weakens my drive train on my new vehicle)?
Also I should be able to fit 33's with a 3" lift, right, or will I only be able to get up to 32's?
Any advice you TJ guys have is welcome and appreciated.
