|nicolas-eric||Sorry. I was talkin about the angle between the pinion and the driveshaft.|

|nicolas-eric||After installing the SYE and CV DS I had an angle of about 7-8 degrees at the pinion and thought that would be ok. But there were still vibes. Now with 1.5 degrees the vibes are gone.|

This is precisely how your rear pinion angle should be set... directly in line with the rear driveshaft. Ideally, 1-2 degrees under that to help compensate for the TJ's minor axle wrap (which slightly lifts the pinion shaft) during acceleration.
Properly set per that illustration from Tom Wood's Custom Driveshafts' site, your rear driveshaft and its u-joints will not vibrate.

|jdhallissey||sorry just saw the tom woods. Do you feel the vibs in your butt or you hands? As in the vibs coming from the rear or the front? I take it the rear. When are they coming speed wise. How bout is it just a shutter taking off from a light or like at 55mph to 60 kind of thing.|

Do you have some pics of your front/rear DS angles?
I have 5.5" of lift and a 3.5" belly-up TC skid. With the SYE and CV DS I donīt have any vibes.
Are you sude that the vibes come from the rear DS? Remove the rear DS and drive with the front DS only (TC in 4H). Are the vibes still there or gone?

driveline vibs with SYE and cv shaft
Did some tweaking on my new RE superflex/SYE/tom wood driveshaft.Set the toe as per Jerry Bransford,adjusted the drag link to get the steering wheel lined up.Shortened up the front UCA,s to add a little pos caster.One highway test drive later,I still have vibs.Everything else is great,high speed bumps,no issue,tracks nice,but has vibs it never had, even with the old driveshaft.I put back the 3 7/8ths washers I was using as a transfer case drop,1/2 inch total under each bolt.Completely solved the vibs.Prior to this I did try 2 rear drive shaft angles measured between the shaft and diff pinion.First one was straight,the other was 2 degs low at pinion.Is it possible I dont have the angles set right? or do I need both the SYE and transfer drop? My setup is a RE 3.5 superflex with 3/4 poly spacers on top,so its closer to the 4.5 RE kit.I also have a JKS 1 1/4 BL/1" MML.Im OK with a small transfer case drop,but I thought it wasnt needed with the SYE?
