Default Sye and driveshaft

Hey guys I've lifted my grand 4.5" over a year ago and and been dealing with the rear driveshaft vibrations. I want to swap the t case for a rebuilt 231 and do a sye but would like more info on using a front driveshaft on the rear. I can find info on xjs but not on the zj.

The ZJ front drive shaft isn't long enough to use in the rear of a ZJ.

The front already is a double cardigan. That's why it would be good to use for the rear.

First you do the sye then measure how long a shaft you need,And find one on this list that size https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f67/lo...engths-126247/ not all front shafts are the same length.
