Big_B I put a 2" lift on mine and ended up putting an SYE and C/V Drive shaft on because I was getting a lot of drive line vibrations. You could also put a transfer case lowering kit on to decrease the angle of the drive shaft but you will lose the clearance you gained by putting the lift kit on.

Nightly Should I go ahead and get a SYE? Do I need it with 2.5" lift?

turdhurdler That is not a SYE, that is the standard output shaft for your transfer case. You just need a new stock size drive shaft and U-joints. Here is a link of what your transfer case would look like with a SYE installed.

I would look into repacing the muffler also. Good luck on your repairs.

nzpete You do not have an SYE, and it looks like you need another stock driveshaft and a new universal joint to connect at the pinion end. Really weird that it would let go like that while driving on the street.
I have a stock driveshaft if you need one.

Rear Drive Shaft Help

Hello, once again I have a problem. On my way to work yesterday my rear drive shift went out. I don't mean out in the sense that it stopped working, but in the sense that it flew off my car. At the time I didn't know what happened and didn't have the time or light to figure out what did go wrong. After work I checked it out and couldn't find it.

I'm not very familiar with the drive train and from my understanding from the previous owner there was a yoke slip eliminator installed. I'm not sure what exactly I need to replace whether there are parts of the YSE missing or if it's just the drive shaft that needs to be replaced. Thanks for any and all help.

Also, the muffler was hit pretty hard by the drive shaft, can it run like this? Or should I replace it immediately?
