SYE installed

Well after 5 hours due to it being my first SYE. I got it done. I drove with the rear DS off and it was wierd. Jeeps are not ment for front wheel drive. You could loose control easy. Luckly no vibes.


I then drove with the rear DS on, Without setting the pinion angle































Nothing No vibes..

I took it up to 40mph.. there are normally vibes at 20-30 then 50-60.. and the overall smoothness was great. You know I thought I only had vibes at 20-30 but realistically after the install I had constant vibes, just at a certain rpm its worse.

I'll go on the freeway tomorrow.. I had to cut the test ride early, due to having shit in my eyes, Wear eye protection folks.

So far I would suggest to enyone with a lift.

Slip yoke eliminator and Drive Shaft are the only acronyms I see. Oh and MPH is miles per hour and RPM is revolutions per minute!!

Truth be told, our jeeps should all have come from the factory with a fixed yoke and a cv drive shaft.

The thing is once you lift your Heep over 3" you'd need to measure for the driveshaft anyway so it really doesn't make much difference.

to be honest, I still dont know how the SYE and shaft really works as opose to the stock one. I just know I needed it, so I installed it. I dont understand wht the shaft from the T-case needed to be shortened.

Longer drive shaft=lesser angle, lesser angle=less bind, less bind=no vibes
Basically thats the equation of it.
