    I got a 6" on mine. The vibration is probably the u-joints. You might want to check and see how far the slip yoke is pulled out of the T-case. That will tell you what you need to know about the driveline. About the u-joints, I have Spicers in mine and they seem a little bit better than one's from a parts store. Got mine through our local driveline company. Your brake lines should be fine. I extended mine because of the 6" lift. When you go and check it after 100 miles, check the u-bolts, springs, etc. Just kind of run over what you changed. That's what I did. If you have anymore ?'s let us know. Later

    Oh yeah, another thing, don't get the SSR's. Go with the TSL or TSL SX. If you are going to spend the money on the SSR's, why not get a better tire. I know a lot of people that bought the SSR's and ended up with TSL's or the SX's. I have the SX's and love them. Wouldn't ask for a better tire.
