yes you will have rear drive line problems with that much lift on a cj5. also i don't really like more than about 1" of shackle lift on a jeep. 3" is way too much

You will need a longer rear driveshaft & don't get shackles any taller than 1" lift.

Good luck! <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0">
