Adding 2" more lift. What else do I need to do?

I have a procomp 6" lift and I am adding the mini pack 2" up front and a 2" taller rear block. What else will I need to do besides adjustable track bar cause I already have that. Something to do with the carrier bearing? Any help is appreciated guys. Thanks in advance

with the 6 inch you should already have a drop bracket for the carrier if not I would get one or make one 2x2 tubing is what I used. Usually with anything pushing 8" and above you start having front driveline binding problems. When I had my OBS with an 8" anyway I ran into that problem used a slight degree shim to fix it and had to lengthen the driveline a little too.

I think it's skyjacker that makes it but they have an adapter plate that lowers the transfer case down so there isn't as much angle on the front driveline.

I have an 8inch on an 03 4dr short box. I got the skyjacker bracket and it made the vibration better but didn't go away. I started shimming painstakingly with washers to find the sweet spot. It never happened, I got a one piece drive shaft and it solved the problem. A bunch of local guys have done the same as well and seems to work out good.
