It looks like its about to cost 600 bucks... Im looking up sye kits (250) extended drive shaft (350) and a new U joint (50)

my jeep has been vibrating and i changed the differential fluid, which didnt help... then i rotated my tires and it didnt help, so I was off to the jeep dealership when my jeep started really shaking and boom... the guy at the jeep dealership said the part was 980 bucks, but it was also discontinued. either way i think going an sye would be in my best interest.

Might as well get an SYE and CV driveshaft

Perfect time and will be around 600!

i was reading about vibrating problems but none of them lead me to check the rear drive shaft. I was under the jeep last night looking for a symptoms and didnt notice any cracks on the housing or the u joint, but if you have a 4 inch lift and it shakes i would definitely check this part out...


and im going with the sye and the cv driveshaft... just searching for a good place to order...

Check out tom wood's custom drive shafts, I've heard a lot of good things about them and they have good prices. Now's a good time to switch to a u-bolt rear yolk from the factory strap yolk too.

Make sure you also get adjustable rear upper control arms to go with that sye/cv. Your gonna need them to set your pinion angle. Check out Evergreen offroad, their a sponser here, and he was givin some smokin deals on all Currie parts.

Its a YJ... No control arms. For a leaf sprung suspension the pinion angle is set with shims.


Beat me to it.^^^

Might I suggest you go a different route? Buy and install a SYE kit. Then drop the Jeep on a hard level surface. Measure yoke to yoke and have a driveline built for your Jeep.

+1. Look up Adams Driveshaft on ebay... You can get a custom length, balanced CV shaft for $235. I got a deal after talking with them on the phone, both front and rear custom CV shafts for under $400 to my door. Great quality, waranty, and price.

after reading about sye and drivelines I quickly realize i was going the wrong route. I looked into the tom woods and i think thats what im most comfortable with... does anyone know the size off hand?

If you go with Tom, you can give him a call and talk to him about what you need. His website is 4xshaft.com, the phone number should be on there. The website also has instructions on where to take measurements for the new driveshaft and a lot of other useful info. It looks like they've got cv/sye kits from $370 to $600.

I just ordered the advanced adapters sye kit from tom and got it yesterday, it looks great now I just have to swap t-cases while I rebuild the tcase and install the sye. Cost 530 shipped to my door.

Haha. Most of my vibration was due to a broken transmission mount (which I replaced yesterday). The rest of the vibration was (i think) due to a bad rear u-joint considering mine went on me last night while I was out and about. I'm extremely happy my slip yoke didn't break though.

You've got a electronic speedo on there the old tailhouse should have had a plug that came out of it and then you had a plug to plug into it obviously that was your speedo. Does the sye have a plug for the speedo?

I fixed the speedo issue, apparently there are numbers on the actual speedo gear that has something to do with reinstalling... either way i rotated it and just happened to luck out and have it work...
