They were properly tightened, but having to shimmy them hinders their ability to hold.

Anyone getting the spacers I suggest you use a bit of lock-tite on the threads just to be sure. Also, use a lock washer. It's not a big deal, since the exhaust has no way of falling even if both bolts fall. They are compressed in there, but even if under some crazy flex they pop off, they'd land on a cross member. You'll just get a very sweet sounding exhaust temporarily, almost felt like leaving the bolts loose .

I'm happy with the results over all. Just wanted to suggest using lock tite on the bolts, even when replaced with better ones just in case.
I have ready several people stating that they have not been getting results with the TeraFlex spacer, even teraFlex is saying the spacer is good for only the 2" lift. I did not want to spend to much money... the original $29.99 price was okay, the new price $60 I could still pay for the teraFlex exhaust spacers, if they would guarantee results with a 3.5" lift... but since many have been calling them a waist of money, I opted for the more expensive AFE y-pipe which many are getting good results...

Thanks for bringing that up, I wasn't aware of that and did a search on the issue and found that it looks like some people with mid-arm and long-arm suspensions may still need a new drive shaft, or a different solution.

To clarify to anyone reading this, I have a 4.5" AEV lift with new Tom Woods drive shaft that is thinner. I still stand by my recommendation of this as, even a permanent solution, as it works with this setup (but my recommendation is with this setup alone). I have completely maxed out my suspension and gotten the Jeep on 3 wheels with no issues. However, this is the case on my specific application, and if you're using something else, YMMV in some cases.

I think, however, for those that are reaching the end of the money roll, that putting the extra money you saved on this vs the Y-pipe towards a new front DS is definitely a good move. That driveshaft even on 3" is going to get stressed quickly.

That said, if price wasn't a consideration, I would definitely have gotten the AFE Y-pipe since its the cleanest solution (and now enough people have reported no power loss on the butt dyno then back when I decided). Though, as I finish up my mods and more money frees up, I don't think I will go back and get it now for my application since the spacers worked out so well and there was no performance loss at all (on the BD).

These exhaust spacers will work with any brand of lift on the market. TeraFlex recomends a new front driveshaft also for 3" or taller TeraFlex kits. Please refer to the video for info needed regarding these. I'll be back in the office thursday, feel free to call me then on these.

Can you share the reason for the new driveshaft? Is it that there are still clearance issues after installing the spacers or is it unrelated to the exhaust?
