Unhappy Slip Yoke Eliminator Question?

I need to install a SYE to stop vibration. I was looking at the Tom Woods SYS kits. The direction says to point the rearend yoke pointing up towards the rear of the Tcase. Is this just to get the measurement for the driveshaft or does the rearend yoke point up even after the install? If so, how do you point the rearend yoke towards the Tcase? Do I need adjustable control arms or some other high dollar piece? Any info would be a big help at this point. Running low on funds and still don't have my rig driveable.

How bad are the vibes for one? Your going to need adjustable uppers. I went with the mega shortie then bought a tom woods rear shaft. Try ocenoo offroad. I got my sye and adjustable uppers from there. Great GREAT customer service and cheaper then anybody else buy almost 50-60 dollars.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

The vibe is pretty bad and I have a Tcase drop already installed. So if I understand correctly the rearend will stay pointed toward the Tcase from this time forward?

Yep- pointed directly at the t-case yoke or just below it by a degree or 2.

How do you keep from hitting your shocks with the spring seat when you tilt the rearend back? Mine are almost touching now and I have the stock setting on the rearend. Do I need to turn my shocks over?

Normally no. The rolling of the axle will not change it's location to the shocks. All your doing is rolling the axle up. Take the t-case out when you do it too. Makes life easier. 9/16's wrench is all you need to disconnect the t-case from the trans. 6 bolts holding them together.

Why does it say in the manuals that you have to remove the transmission with the Tcase? So this isnt true? I have a manual transmission.
