Appreciate help w/ SYE + Driveline

I plan on installing slip yoke and driveshaft next couple months. I see a BIG range of prices from several different companies. I want one that is reliable and fairly good priced. Any info you have for me please let me know! Includes prices of sye and drieshaft and brand of course. Please state what you have so that I can consider. I currently have 4 inch lift (little sag) and 33 toyo open country tires and t-case drop.

I have 1.75/2 inch poly spacers ready for install but I was concerned about putting them one before sye. Any info on that let me know too thanks alot!

Mine: Advance Adapters HD SYE & Tom Woods Shaft

No better combination IMO. The Advance Adapters kit is a solid unit and has been proven for years to be plenty strong. And Tom Woods is one of the TOP makers of custom drive shafts. They have kits running $350-$600 depending on options.

The super short SYE kits are nice, but do not retain the stock speedometer gear, and instead use a tone ring that digitizes the speedo reading and needs a computer to calibrate.

There are many good driveshaft builders and SYE kits. I like Tom Wood's as his customer service is second to none, and I have had great luck with his products.

The kit he sells for $525 is a good kit with the AA SYE and one of his drive shafts.


As far as installing the spacers before the SYE, you will most likely have some nasty driveline vibes.

Nope, I have the regular HD kit. Has held up great so far.

The super short one brings the yoke in about 4" or 5" more than a regular one. And really is not necessary IMO.

No problem, yeah, 6" of lift is just too much w/o an SYE.

Ok sounds good they shall wait. Haha thanks for the info now installation doesn't seem to hard I watch and read about it. I've done a clutch job and have dropped the tranny before so it doesn't seem to bad. Things you recommend to watch out for?
