When you're hearing the noise, describe the sound more.  Is it a heavy pop or bind sound or just a rattle like a shield or linkage?  Also, what are the details when you hear the noise as far as how fast are you going, 2WD/4WD, Misc.  Is it constant or intermittent?  Was the TCase drop part of the lift kit or fabbed?  I know some guys upgrade the linkage do to other issues, Novak makes a good kit.  I've never been a fan of drops, had issues in another Jeep.  I also have a 99XJ with similar lift, I have a hack n tap for the 242.  Do you have a 231 or 242?

Lol bill down at the bottom u lost me thats why i joind the chat learning is fundamental so i wanna say its more of a heavy poping and bind like metal stretching just putting it in gear makes the noises. Driving at low speeds and hitting bumps and holes. Yes i got the rough country 6 inch lift included the drop spacers

No worries!  It will all come in time, you'll get plenty of support here.  Look at your T-Case shifter, if it has 2H, 4H, N, and 4L you have a 231 transfer case.  If it has 2WD, 4 Part Time, 4 Full Time, N, and 4L then you have a 242 transfer case.  In lieu of a T-Case drop a slip yoke eliminator can be installed on a 231 to correct the drive line angle.  For a 242, you would need a Hack n Tap.  Google both.  Getting back to the popping sound.  With a big lift you have surely changed the pinion angle unless you shimmed the rear.  How are the joints on the driveshaft?  Check the condition.  Where are you located?  We have members located everywhere.  We have weekly and monthly meets in Suffolk, Nassau, and Queens.

Try to get to the monthly Queens meet, some great people to ask questions.  Most of us wrench and will give support.  Some of the Queens guys can chime in with a local shop name.  If you don't mind heading East, hit up John at Goonies Garage (Holtsville, L.I.) 631-307-9500.
