I am pretty sure this is axle wrap?

But I would like some verification.

The rear end of my '96 has 4 inch lift blocks, chevy drop shackles, and add-a-leafs. When i am in first gear and start moving I get some studdering/ vibration from the rear.

If it is axle wrap should I go with a JD long link TB set, Procomps Lateral TB set, or someone elses?

That is what I was thinking of doing. I probably won't be able to do any of this until I get the truck from Portland Or. To Madison Wi.

or you can go with the Skyjacker lift springs that would just bolt right in..........

a chevy spring swap in your '96 will be harder because the front spring hanger is a "V" shaped hanger, not the "U" shaped hanger that are on the newer Rangers........i would've done the chevy swap if it wasn't for that......yours will include A LOT more measure ments than just moving the rear holes to the front holes.....

There might be too extreme an angle on the U-joints. Those things are very picky.
Form what I understand you will usually only get axle wrap when you give it too much throttle, and it normally results in wheel hop. But im probably wrong since im new to rwd.
