Would a SYE Replace This Part?!?

Hey guys,

Just became a owner of a 2005 Jeep Wrangler X.

Previous owner put a 4" rough country lift and 35" mudders on it.

Iím getting some knocking sounds form the drive shaft. I need 2 new U-Joints in the front and was told to replace the item in the picture that is attached to the transfer case..



My question is..

Would one of the Tom Woods SYE Conversion Kits replace this part and would that be a smart move?

I apologize for currently having no friggin clue about the vehicle I just purchased..

Any info is greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks guys.

yes, and yes.
you will also need rear upper adjustable control arms to set pinion angle though, if you do not have them already.

there is the standard Savvy, Rokmen, JKS, etc that is considered the top of the line stuff. both Savvy and Rokmen are supporting vendors on this site as well. however ive got no personal experiance with either. the only brand of control arms ive had a chance to play with and examine up close are the ones from rough country. if you are on a budget, those will get you by. not the best, top notch stuff, but are ok.
