    7 inch lift and there was no drivetrain modification??? that seems awful risky....

    it would allow you to spin the driveshaft and listen to see if the noise is coming from the transmission, or the rear end, or transfer case, or wherever... you cant spin the driveshaft with the wheels on the ground AND be under it

    Well the lift came with a bracket so you didn't have to mod the drive shaft but the place that put it on said it could be the drive shaft because its not long enough

    well we need someone to chime in with more experience on lifts and drivetrain modification, but i thought at 6 inches you were supposed to lengthen the driveshaft, not sure though

    I can tell you that even a three inch lift kicks the driveshaft back about 1.5-2 inches as you can see in my video

    anything is possible, BUT at 7 inches of lift I would definitely get on google and research the poop out of that right now

    I talked to a guy that got the same lift asmine and he listened to the video and he said he had the same noise and I could be the exhaust hitting the cross member

    I also emailed the company about that to see if it they had any problems

    I had a 6" on my 95 and the drive shafts did not have to be modified at all. The exhaust did have to modified from where it came off of the driverside manifold and crossed over to connect near the passenger side. I wonder if the front drive shaft is rubbing your exhaust. What brand lift kit is it?

    Well the lift said there was no need of cutting or manufacturing of the exhaust but the guy I talked to had to do it and he has the same yeat and its a McGaughys lift kit

    My best guess would have to be the drive shaft not being long enough because it never made that noise before

    No grind/rattle, here. I've been quietly reading this thread and am baffled, too. I was waiting for a vid with sound...
