Hi, after having a new engine built and nuttered, I thought all I had left was the rear brakes... Since I didn't have a floor jack I used my Hi-lift at the rear bumper. To get it on the jack stands. That with the 3" lift has caused a leak right behind transfer case. Since it wasn't leaking before, would just replacing the seal be ok? Or should I replace the bushing too ? Or so the slip yoke eliminator?

You'll be happier with the SYE in the long run. You might have ruined the bushing or the extension housing lifting it that way. I did the same thing when I first got my jeep and decided to pony up the big bucks for the SYE

You'd need a cv style driveshaft. It'd be about $400-500 total. You can take the extension housing off your transfer case and inspect it and the bushing if you can't do the sye, just know the bushing has to be pressed in to work right

That is not stock, thats the hack n tap slip yoke eliminator. That changes things quite a bit. You might be able to just replace the seal and be fine

You'll probably have to remove the shaft and that will get you to the bolt to remove the yoke. Then you pull the yoke off and replace the seal

Got it fixed! Seal was easy. Cleaned the splines and covered them in rtv before sliding the hollow piece back over them. Completely dry now.

Awesome, hopefully it stays sealed! Nothing is more annoying then tearing something apart only to find the seal goes bad a month later
