Most likely yes to the index ring, but first get your carrier bearing dropped, then drive it. If your vibration is gone you dont need to do the t-case, if it does, you do. How much is your back end lifted? I have the 4" block and dropped mine 1 and 1/4" but I think most trucks will be diffrent, no set rule. We did mine three times with diffrent shims until it felt good. I had to index my t-case with only 7" on the front, but I did not install the bracket provided by Superlift to drop the back of the tranny, I felt that tipping the trans and t-case down it would make the front drive shaft angle worse. If you crawl under there you will see what I mean. Hope this helps

On that much lift, Id definately index the t-case. Dont most 6" lifts do that? The damn driveshaft is so short in the first place, youd almost have to.

I dont see how dropping the trans would make the angle worse...its the same thing as indexing the t-case. Your lowering the point at which the driveshaft connects to the case.

i got the leaf springs and 2" blocks in the rear to make it sit level...so i guess 8" in rear....now do you index the t-case even with manual transmission? 1piece drive shaft? i have my carrier bearing dropped 2" and it still vibrates. imm goin to get my alignment done again and wheels balanced again for good measure just double check everything i dont want something to break
