whats needed for sye?

I am just woundering if anything is needed to install an sye besides the sye and driveshaft. Im thinkin like, would i need to be able to adjust my pinion angle? Right now I have the zone 4" lift kit with the blocks on the uper control arm mounts that adjust the pinion angle. Would i need to purchase anything besides the sye and shaft?

the SYE kit is all you need.. it helps with the pinion angle..

you need a trackbar relocation bracket to make sure the bar doesnt rub the gas tank when you are wheelin.

You mean like the track bar bracket that came with my lift? Got that on. I think my next purchase for the jeep will be the sye.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you need rear adjustable upper control arms so you can set your pinion angle correctly.

1)SYE kit
2)CV style drive shaft
3)adjustable control arms - uppers at least
4)*an adjustable rear track bar would be ideal, you may be able to make the stock one work with a bracket

If you get a high clearance skid plate you will also more than likely have to have your exhaust bent a hair differently to clear everything unless you have a small muffler.

You do need rear UCAs to adjust pinion angle.

and you need a pair of scissor type spring pliers (the cheap ones are just fine) High dollar snap ring pliers wont take the big snap ring off the old shaft in your TC. It takes a chickensquat pair of spreaders.... Oh yeah... while the directions are technically correct.. you CAN install an SYE with the TC in the Jeep. But you will create a new language in the process.. it is 10X easier to pull the TC and get after it.

I bought mine from arcfab - - get the "easy adjustable ones" They can be adjusted after they are installed and that makes a huge difference.

and if you can install that sucker without taking out the TC you are worthy!
(not sayin it cant be done.... I am saying it woulda sucked)

X2 on this....

OP - read this:
What is a CV shaft and why do I want one? - JeepForum.com

As for arms, don't get Currie if you want to retain your stock lowers. Currie uppers don't extend further than stock. I'd suggest going with Rokmen - they offer a nice length selection.

Rokmen Gear Up....Rok On

You won't need to change the lowers from what they are. The only ones you will adjust are the uppers. If I had to guess i would say about a half inch for a 4" lift. I can't remember what I set mine at, but that should be close.
