jokerchief462 Got a custom shaft from Tom Woods shipped to the door for $309. They will ask you for meausurements from u-joint to u-joint and the pinion angle and T-Case angle. They will walk you through the process and provide any technical info you need to make it happen. Warranty is no problem.

wrangleryj90 Old drive shaft won't connect to it you need as shaft with a joint I have heard you can pull one of of a grand tho

stuntmansjeep Why would you need a new drive shaft when you get a SYE?

jokerchief462 When the Jeep is lifted a lot of things get changed and the driveline angle is one of them. The springs may have come with shims/wedges to get the pinion angle up and with the stock shaft in it may have the wrong angle. The T-Case drop is good for some but not all. Then you have to look at the dirveshaft slip yoke and determine at full extension of the suspension is the shaft going to stay on the out put shaft of the T-Case or possibly fall off. It happens more than one would think. The SYE kits remove that problem but cost $$$ and then you need a new shaft as well. But in the meantime look at the pics attached for driveline angle. Or you can go to Tom Woods website and do a little reading on there home page right side grey banner Technical Information. This is where I got the picture from.

With a slip yoke joint on the driveshaft this is what you angles should be the pinion should be parralell to the driveshaft.

The second picture is from a YJ with your setup from a hrad day of trail riding.

stuntmansjeep I looked up yoke eliminators for a jeep wrangler yj. Are there different transfer cases for a yj?

I would say yes it does might be able to just get a longer driveshaft also idk how your angles are or would be

stuntmansjeep What do you recommend I use for redoing the t case drop?

SquareLite That is the factory slip yoke and a transfer case drop. I like the load of the transmission and t case to be more evenly distributes than on a couple of small spacers, so if it were mine, I'd think about changing it down the road to a beefier setup. It's a very cheap and easy fix.

SquareLite A tease drop can be purchased in a kit or probably made by yourself. Mine is about 3/4". It's just rectangular tubing on both sides. Cut the same length as the skid plate and drilled out the bolt holes. I run a sye as well

stuntmansjeep How much of a t-case drop would I need for 5" lift?
05-21-2013 10:39 PM
Speedy4x4 You need either at T-case drop or a slip yoke eliminator.
05-21-2013 10:35 PM
Nubby55 nothing to aline but set the toe-in, you can do it your self with a tape measure in about 15mins.

stuntmansjeep Also I got new tires and replaced most of the front end myself but I got the tired and car totally alighted other than the driveshaft
05-21-2013 11:24 AM
stuntmansjeep At about 50mph. I have no idea about an extended yoke or anything but I've had a few people tell me I might need to do something with the driveshaft/U-joint but I saw a few people on threads saying that dropping their transfer case fixed everything.
05-21-2013 01:55 AM
SquareLite When are the vibrations most noticeable? At why speed? Another thing to consider is your drive shaft may need to be balanced again if you had it lengthened. New tires out of balance? Are you running a slip yoke eliminator and a double Carden joint?

stuntmansjeep 5" lift. I'll post pictures tomorrow if I can't figure it out
