I took the skid plate off; it takes an extra 5 minutes to do so and gives you much more room, I don't think I'd want to leave it on.
To support everything, I typically put a jack stand in the area you described.

|jeepers29||To the guys that did the SYE, with the trans case still in the jeep. Can I leave the skid plate installed or does it need to come off? If it needs to come off, where do you support the tranny at? Where the bell housing mates to the engine block? Thanks for your help.|

|jeepers29||Subsribed for near future use.|

|geiman||Sounds good man, good luck!|

I emailed Gerald and he recommended the CE-9123 which I think has the bolt on bracket??
I'll see if the RC has interference issues first.

|geiman||Also keep in mind both of the brackets I talked about are to be used with a Johnny Joint so if you are planning on using another trac bar (other than the Currie one) you may need to use a different bracket depending on the width of the joint/bushing.|

Did you read through that thread? I only say that because I believe that question was asked and answered there. If I find it I'll link it here. But, I'm sure you are able to; if you call or email Gerald at Savvy or someone over at Currie they could hook you up.
I can't say for sure, but I would guess you could even use the standard bolt on bracket you can buy separately on Currie or Savvy's site if you are unable to weld.

I'm a big fan of the Johnny Joint, and as such I'd recommend the new trac bar from Currie/Savvy. You can read about it here:
New Design Rear Track Bar! - JeepForum.com
The bracket it comes with needs to be welded on (I believe) but you can't get a better trac bar than that IMO.

So after I get pinion angle set, I'll need to pull coils and check at full bump for binding?
If it does is there a certain trackbar/bracket recommendation?
|12-20-2011 12:09 PM|
|geiman||Typically your trac bar will get put into a bind, so a bracket is required. You can always see how it is after you adjust for your pinion angle, but I'm guessing it will get in a bind at some point. I've got a bracket on mine for now, but my next step is to 4-link the rear and get rid of the trac bar completely.|

|TheTJRod||You need adjustable control arms, but as to requiring a relocation bracket for the track bar. Haven't heard of that, though I have only done my own and don't have a rear track bar anymore. If you have to point your pinion up alot I could see how it would put a twist on your trackbar bushings.|

Hey Guys, I have another question.
I'm installing the AA SYE / TW DS package from Savvy.
Currently have an RC adjustable trackbar on the rear. Will I need to modify this with the SYE/DS installation. I thought I read some where that I might need to do something like add a relocation bracket or something due to interferrence issues?

|DgonzTj||My suspension came with replacement LCA's both front and back. I currently have HD adjustables up front but the stocks in the back|
|12-19-2011 12:44 PM|
When I did my 3" suspension lift I started with adjustable lower front/rear CAs. After the install I realized adjustable upper front/rear CAs were in order.
Adjustable lower CAs and factory upper CAs:
You can shorten the lower CAs to tune in the pinion angle. Depending on your lift, I'm not sure if you can shorten them enough. However, you're shortening your wheelbase in the process. Which is pulling the front tires into the rear of the wheel well. When you're flexing and got the steering wheel turned you may rub.
Adjustable upper and lower CAs
Now you can tune in your pinion angle and correct for wheelbase.

What is a CV shaft and why do I want one? - JeepForum.com
You'll definitely need adjustable rear upper control arms, and if you want to correctly set things up you'll want to get the rear lower arms as well.
|12-18-2011 09:36 AM|
|nick50471||You must have rear UCA's to adj pinion angle for the CV driveshaft|
|12-18-2011 09:19 AM|
|DgonzTj||i see the reason for everything minus the rear upper control arms.... i do have front UCA's but thats because I bent the stocks|
|12-17-2011 10:11 PM|
|nick50471||Well then your fist mod should be to ditch the worthless TC drop buy a UCF Ultra High Clearance Transfercase skid, SYE/CV driveshaft and adj. rear UCA's. This will transform your rig from a low riding earth scraper to a high clearance stump jumper.|
|12-17-2011 07:38 PM|
|DgonzTj||bought my jeep with the lift already on... has the TC drop, about an inch or so from the looks of it.|

|12-17-2011 02:58 PM|
|nick50471||If you don't have a TC drop yes you must have a SYE. You will have bad driveline vibes and destroy ujoints on a regular basis. A TC drop is also a dumb idea because it totally defeats the purpose of the lift.|
|12-17-2011 02:51 PM|
|DgonzTj||I have a 4" lift on 33's and was recommended i get a SYE but what is the benefit of having one and do I ACTUALLY need it with my setup?|
|12-16-2011 04:17 PM|
When I did mine I kept the t-case on the vehicle and used tall jack stands. I can't see how accessing the top 2 nuts to remove the t-case is easy at all.
However, I wish I had removed the t-case so I could have replaced my leaky tail shaft seal in my auto tranny.

After fighting with and breaking a couple cheapo pairs of pliers, I also went to the Matco tool guy. (I know where he lives. ) I installed it while in the Jeep with the back end supported by large jackstands. Plenty of room. I broke the collar where the pick up tube fits in the oil pump, by not being careful.

|jaybird3c||one thing i would recommend is when your putting on the slip yolk eliminator kit make sure the gasket material is on correctly. i know it sounds stupid but it get pretty thin on the bottom side and it would suck to have to pull it apart cause it leaks. also i would make sure your angle match, do you have adjustable control arms or cam bolts for upper control arms?|
