Zone 4.25 Combo

I want to use this kit as I don't do much offroading and it's my dd. Ill be putting on 33s but do I need a sye/cv? 03 SE 5 speed. And yes I have been looking around and I'm newbie so I'm confused.

Thank you in advance.

With the motor mount lift and body lift, the kit is advertised to not need an SYE. However, it can't hurt to have one and many folks on here will say that the truly correct way to do things is to have one. I am hoping to put this lift on my 99 Sport in the next few months, so I'm curious about what others will chime in with.

What tire/wheel combo are you going with?

From everything I've read every TJ seems to be different as far as driveline vibrations go. I have a 2.5" spring lift on mine and it vibrated like an old washing machine for the 5 miles I drove it to where I installed a SYE and double cardan drive shaft.

I decided before putting the springs in to do the SYE for several reasons. First I didnt want to lower the transfer case skid. It already sits too low and is refered to by many people as a "shovel". Second if you look at the factory drive shaft length and the angles the U-joints work at, it just visually looks like a U-joint explosion looking for a place to happen. I'm no expert by any means but I can tell you that for me it was a no brainer. My Jeep has no vibrations at any speed and when I look at the rear driveline I don't get any sinking feelings of imminent driveline explosions.

I'm doing 15x8 cragars and 33 duratracs but I guess an sye wouldn't be a bad idea but its not necessary. I guess I'll just wait until I install it in the next few months and see how bad the vibes are.

They're are all kinds of slip yoke eliminator kits in the market, I'm sure somebody could recommend one. But yes you will need a double cardan, or c/v as it is commonly miscalled, driveshaft. Your factory one will no longer work with the addition of a sye.

Once I get the cv and sye do I need anything else suspension wise?

You'll also need adjustable rear upper control arms and an SYE trackbar bracket to set the pinion angle.

This is what I run with 33 tires. No it does not come with an SYE. Though you may want to get the quick discos and a better front stabilizer bar. I got a new pro comp bar and did order a SYE just because of the size of the suspension. Though now I'm needing those quick disconnects, which I found. Mine is mostly a DD with weekend off reading and it handles really well on the highway. If you pull the trigger, enjoy it .

Honestly I did not install it (living in an apartment doesn't help) and got a good deal (free shipping) to have a local shop install it. And yes I got both. Wasn't going to get the cv but thought better of it lol.
