sye and cv rear driveshaft question...

I am looking to finally install an sye and cv rear driveshaft on my 93 yj w a 2.5 inch lift... any recommendations on what to go with? and is there a way to tell which cv driveshaft will work with which sye? thanks! I assume they aren't all universal with one another! thanks

As long as the u-joint size is the same, most of them are universal. I run an Advance Adapters SYE with a Tatton's driveshaft and I'd highly recommend them. Both are excellent quality and great prices.

How much can a guy expect to spend on the SYE and a good rear dive shaft?

Advance adapters SYE is $200, and a Tatton's driveshaft is $260. Im not sure of the price on a Tom Woods.

I also have the tattons ds and sye combo, but mine came with a Terraflex sye, check him out on eBay, sye+DS+shipping= $460, and his driveshafts are very nice.

That's the exact one I got. If you get confused, just call him up. Super helpful guy.

The installing the sye part is easier than than the removing the tcase part IMO. It can be done without removing the case but I didn't have it on a lift so I just removed it.

It's not too bad at all. We did an SYE and 8.8 swap in a total of 4 hours. There was 3 of us.

I'd suggest a good pair of snap ring pliers and I had to pull the front yoke off with a steering wheel puller and some bolts I got at lowes with the same thread as the yoke strap bolts
