A little late now, but Adams driveshaft has SYE and driveshaft for about $400. My $40 coupon for Tom Wood's expires in November 2012.
Nope, it doesn't.... after this I'm done for a minute or two... my wife is going to kill me LMAO!

I don't think it would mess with the camber would it?
yes I had to get it aligned. Drove much better after that and bigger tires.

Bomber65 I had to get an alignment and buy cam bolts. I think those are for the caster adjustment. Wasn't your wheels tilted (toe-in) real bad after the lift? There is way to do your alignment with a tape measure, but I didn't want to try it. Thought it was better to let the pro's handle that part.

I left mine alone since its not a big problem and I am also going to do a SYE so I can remove the TC drop.
I'm already pricing sye.. looking at about 500 bones...

arcountryboy Looks good, I just ordered a 2.5 lift and 32" super swamper TSL's for mine.
03-08-2012 05:06 PM
Bomber65 You will probably need the TC drop. But you could take it on a test drive before and see if you have any driveline vibes.
