Looks good I would like to see the drive shaft geometry while flexing and while stationary on a flat surface. I am thinking you are going to bust a few U-joints when it binds under a load (flex) unless you have dropped the transfercase and transmission mounts. I had a buddy who did something similar and after 7" of lift he had tons of issues until the transfercase was dropped to correct the driveshaft/axle geometry. Just a few thoughts.

onewheelscotty thanks for your vote of confidence there. I was just stating a friends experience and what we did to fix it. I have been wheeling for years and have seen many busted drive shafts and u-joints from poor driveshaft geometry. I work full time as a master mechanic and have a few years of experience.

tightening the DS TRE all the way would help

does the angle of the coils realy matter or am i missing a bad alignment not seen in the pics. i am putting a hp44 with balistic fab coil/control arm mounts on and rotated them up 10* (2") for better lower control arm clearence so the top of the coil will be rocked back a little bit, is that going to cause any major problems its just a trail rig.
