CV Style Drive Shaft?

I have a 1992 Jeep Wrangler and just recently put a spring over conversion in it. I was going to go with the CV Style Drive Shaft. Is this a good idea? I am not familar with these type of drive shafts. My other question is the place im looking to buy it from says the driveshaft requires a CV-1310 transfer case yoke. Does anyone happen to know what style transfer case yoke a 1992 Jeep wrangler has in it? It is a 4 cyclinder.

yes you need it, just look for a slip yoke eliminator kit, and then the cv driveshaft. you want the drive shaft for 6" lift.

look around for SYE. they're all pretty comparably priced more or less. for the driveshaft, i bought a front shaft off of an xj on ebay for ~40 and had it shortened. seems like it cost 90 or 100 to get it cut down and balanced.

it would defeat the purpose, and you have a np231 t case. and the front shaft out of an xj cherokee is a cheaper alternative. haven't shopped for a while, but that d shaft can cost 3 to 4 hundred smackers.

I wouldn't... If you want to do it right, buy a SYE kit amd install it.. After you have it installed you want to measure the lenght between your transfer case yoke and axle yoke.. like this


Then have one made for the lenght of your jeep.. Don't buy one that say's it's made for "4in to 6in lift".. Order one or have one made locally.. I'd suggest Tom woods custom driveshafts, they make great driveshafts and ship fast...

How hard is it to install a SYE? Can you do it without taking out the transfer case?

If you really want to avoid the SYE you could....drop the tcase 1", shim the rear axle to semi correct the pinion angle, then lengthen the driveshaft. I really would not trust that setup though.

Like Rednek said you could put band-aids all over your drivetrain. I know it cost alot but the right way would be the CV shaft and SYE.

IF your doing an SOA conversion theres no getting around the need for a CV driveshaft.. The angle of your stock driveshaft is going to be to great to the point where your going to be changing ujoints every week.. If you do a transfercase drop something like this could happen




Thats on the extreme side though, but could happen becasue it happend to me You don't have to take the transfer case out to install a SYE, jack the transmission and drop the skid plate and go at it.. Get a set of snap ring pliers and a good 3-5 hours and you got it.. I thought it was going to be horrible first time I did it but I felt stupid after I actually did it becasue it wasn't hard at all.. So in conclusion A SOA conversion and stock driveshaft is a no go...
