slip yoke eliminator question

trying to do some home work here. i know for a 4inch lift you need a sye and for a tummy tuck you need a sye. now if i put the lift on first and a sye will that same sye work when i put the tt on?

yes you can use the same sye... BUT idk if the driveshaft length is going to be a factor. you might need .50"-.75" longer shaft after your tummy tuck if you do it all in one there should be no problems whatso ever

Drive shaft will most likely need extended.

Most lifts now come with a t-case drop....just run it until you get the tummy tuck and then do the sye/d-shaft.

It'll only be a month or so right? Why pay for something twice....I'd much rather have my D-shaft done once.

The T-case drop isn't for the shifter...it's for your driveline until you get the sye/dshaft installed. If you lift the vehicle your suspension drops lower putting bad angles on the drive line...lower the t-case (lowers the driveline) to help with driveline vibes and etc.

No worries, we all learn something every day.

Click on this link here to learn a little about drive shafts and how to measure for your length...
Tom Wood's Custom Drive Shafts - Tom Woods Custom Drive Shafts Custom Driveshafts Specialist

Also If you want to order the shaft but don't have the lift/sye installed yet but need them all at once....Give TomWoods a call and tell them what you have and they can set you up with just what you need SYE/CV shaft for your lift and tummy tuck.

And.....If your lift does not come with adjustable control arms.....You will need to purchase a set of upper rear adjustable control arms to set the pinion angle for the dshaft/lift you have.

Any questions you have bud don't be afraid to ask.

yeah i spend most my time on here, i know alot more than i did about a year ago when i bought my jeep.
distorted i noticed you have the 2.5 ome, i hear nothing but great about that lift how do you like it and whats the 2.5 OME, ZJ lift coils? im just not sure if ima be happy with only 2.5 inch lift. i would like to get to 35s eventually and i know it can be done with a 2.5, it just adds more work, an its not a problem i love working on my jeep, its the extra "play" cash needed to do it

X2 on the Tom Wood's, some of the best in the world. As far the the SYE goes, like everyone has been saying...don't get it until you get the tummy tuck.

I run a 1" t-case drop on a 4" teraflex lift without a SYE and I haven't had any problems. 4" it the max you can go w/o an SYE and sometimes it doesn't work. But I would say go with it. Just don't drive it like you have an SYE in because you run the risk of cracking your t-case if the slip yoke doesn't fail gracefully.

I love my lift. OME "ZJ" lift coils are front OME ZJ coils...higher spring rate for the added weight I have on the front of my jeep and nets 3'' lift. My rear coils are 2.5'' liftt LJ coils...again for the certain coil rate I wanted for the heavy armor/tire and gear I carry in the back of the jeep...I also tow a small camping trailer so it assist with that too with no spring sag. The Rear LJ coils/rates I pick net me 2.75rear lift. I also have a 1.25'' JKS body lift to give me the clearance needed to run 33'' tires with decent articulation. To run 35's I would have to address my bumpstops again and run flat fenders in the front and remove the rear inner liner and probally have to clearance the pinch seams.

I will probally be on 37's shortly with the same lift but a LOT of different body parts. to do so.

If you are really curios about OME lifts and want to know about coil rates give Dirk a call at DPGoffroad.com....OME guru. He'll talk to you all day about what is best for the mods you have/will have and set you up with the right coils for your application.

TexasT, so far i like it, i put a bl on and the cable was alot easier than putting on the drop and new linkage that it came with. it shifts smoother than stock very little resistance. ive only had it on for about 2 days now so as far as for the long haul i have to get back with you. so far its great

If you can measure it right you can use the same drive shaft before and after the TT
