srans I fixed the speedo issue, apparently there are numbers on the actual speedo gear that has something to do with reinstalling... either way i rotated it and just happened to luck out and have it work...

yjkid95 You've got a electronic speedo on there the old tailhouse should have had a plug that came out of it and then you had a plug to plug into it obviously that was your speedo. Does the sye have a plug for the speedo?

bink Looks good bud. Congrats on gettin her back on the road. Speedo prob will be answered soon, Im sure.

and im going with the sye and the cv driveshaft... just searching for a good place to order...
Haha. Most of my vibration was due to a broken transmission mount (which I replaced yesterday). The rest of the vibration was (i think) due to a bad rear u-joint considering mine went on me last night while I was out and about. I'm extremely happy my slip yoke didn't break though.

Abomination93 I just ordered the advanced adapters sye kit from tom and got it yesterday, it looks great now I just have to swap t-cases while I rebuild the tcase and install the sye. Cost 530 shipped to my door.

Tyewilly If you go with Tom, you can give him a call and talk to him about what you need. His website is 4xshaft.com, the phone number should be on there. The website also has instructions on where to take measurements for the new driveshaft and a lot of other useful info. It looks like they've got cv/sye kits from $370 to $600.

after reading about sye and drivelines I quickly realize i was going the wrong route. I looked into the tom woods and i think thats what im most comfortable with... does anyone know the size off hand?

MellowYellow89YJ +1. Look up Adams Driveshaft on ebay... You can get a custom length, balanced CV shaft for $235. I got a deal after talking with them on the phone, both front and rear custom CV shafts for under $400 to my door. Great quality, waranty, and price.

Damn, that hurt

SYE, CV drive shaft(doesn't have to be a Woods)any competent driveline shop can make one and you might want to look at one of these.......

Its a YJ... No control arms. For a leaf sprung suspension the pinion angle is set with shims.


Beat me to it.^^^

Moroney167 I was gonna say... control arms. I did the control arm delete kit I guess

Moroney167 Thats what scares me... going to pick up a SYE kit tonight haha
06-20-2011 04:17 PM
Tyewilly Check out tom wood's custom drive shafts, I've heard a lot of good things about them and they have good prices. Now's a good time to switch to a u-bolt rear yolk from the factory strap yolk too.

IndyJeepMan Might as well get an SYE and CV driveshaft

Perfect time and will be around 600!

It looks like its about to cost 600 bucks... Im looking up sye kits (250) extended drive shaft (350) and a new U joint (50)

my jeep has been vibrating and i changed the differential fluid, which didnt help... then i rotated my tires and it didnt help, so I was off to the jeep dealership when my jeep started really shaking and boom... the guy at the jeep dealership said the part was 980 bucks, but it was also discontinued. either way i think going an sye would be in my best interest.
06-20-2011 12:52 PM
Abomination93 I know 100% what that's like...all in all it cost me about 500 to fix it
06-20-2011 12:41 PM
GoldenSahara00 My heart just broke.
