I just installed aa sye on my 01 XJ Sport, i'm about to order a Driveshaft. My rear diff is like on 5 degree angle and it's not pointing to the Transfer Case.
My question: Is there any way i can make my rear diff. point to the TC (change the angle)? Should i get the degree shims, is that my only way out?
Anyways my Jeep is sitting duck cuz of this proplem. I don't want to measure/order the driveshaft and then find out i could of made my rear diff point to the TC. PLZ HELP
Thank you for help and any input in advance!!!!

about 4 inches and 31/10.5

I got 3.5 RE super flex lift and I did the same thing you did with shocks in the rear using old swaybar(not sure if that gives u any lift). But compared to stock it looks like the car lifted around 4 to 5 inches!!!

measure it as it is .even if you come out with a vibration put some shims in.its not going to change anything enough to matter.have you ever noticed how little your driveshaft will move under full compression and full droop

Yea, with an SYE at that lift height you should not need shims...worst case you can always add them later.

BPE will not give you any lift, but they give you flexability in shock selection. Plus they can give you a little more droop (depending on the shock you are running).
