Default another lift question

my jeep has a 3 in lift on it now and 2/4 shocks are blown and all of the lower control arms bushings are shot so I'm starting to get pretty bad death wobble

my idea is to just get a new lift kit. rough country has a 4 and 6 inch X-flex lift with new trac bar, break lines, quick disconnects and pitman arm included.

my question is can i go up to a 6 inch lift? i already have a sye on the jeep. but its a low pinion front.

*i am aware of the quality of rough country*

it might not fix your death wobble.

well the jeep has 16k on it, the only worn out part on the thing is the aftermarket control arms

I'm about 99% sure thats it

Check the trackbar, I found the front axle bolt had wallowed out the hole in the axle and that was causing my DW. Why not just replace bushings on the CAs?

@bpracing, why would he need to drop his tcase? He said he has an SYE so dropping the tcase will just eliminate his ground clearance without giving him any sort of benefit. He just needs adjustable UCAs to point his pinions at the TCase.
