2000 GC noise after lift?

Today I finished a 2in budget lift and now I have a whining noise on acceleration and stops when I let off the gas. Can't tell if it is drive shaft noise or where it is coming from. Any ideas? NoRuts

Re: 2000 GC noise after lift?

Most likely the cv on the front drive shaft.The lift changes the angle it sits at while running and moves the rotating assembly away from its old wear pattern.Could also be the change in pinion angle causing the front diff to be noisy.For the most part people just ignore it if it doesnt become worse or it will reduce over time as a new wear pattern establishes itself.Pretty common on WJ lifts.
Cheers
