tiny terror no, but I did when I took off the t-case drop a week later when the vibes started back up.

if the driveshaft angles are only 0.1 degrees out of the specifications you´ll get some vibes.

one question:
did you loosen/remove the 4 TC bolts at the TC plate before putting in the BL/MML? if not that can cause bad vibes.
a buddy did that mistake...

tiny terror Let's see....... I don't have a 44, and just put in a little bitty teraflex 2in BB that didn't come with any extra bolts (but it had a sticker) and um...... what else.... the vibes are worse going uphill and........ I'm going to but the t-case drop back on tomorrow (it was only three washers so it doesn't really count anyways.)

nicolas-eric my skyjacker BB didn´t come with such cam bolts.
i prefered top lower the TC because on 2006 TJs drilling is required to install the cam bolts.
and i won´t need them anymore after may next step (8 adj. jks CAs, belkly-up, SYE).

compshooter The BB comes with new cam bolts for the rear axle. These are adjustable. Directions state to try them and then adjust as necessary to eliminate vibes. That is why they are included. Somebody (sorry, read fast) posted up a pic of the Pro Comp cam bolt directions. Mine is Superlift, but the concept is the same. Adjust the cam bolts and see if it gets better or worse.

FEI....5 speed and D35, since someone stated the auto and D44 don't play nicely with a MML.

You have a cam bolt, but I doubt if it's adjustable. I believe that was limited to 97/98. Your bolt probably goes thru the center of the spacers. Where as an adjustable cam bolt is offset so you can adjust.

tiny terror So the speed holes I added with the pickaxe were a bad idea???

jp'rs_peep'rs Time for a time out! Walk away and come back with a fresh mind and body!

nicolas-eric @tiny terror:
do you have a rear D44 axle? AND the 4-gear auto tranny?
then it´s normal that there are vibes with a 2" BB and MML.
i still need some washers with the MML to avoid vibes.
a friend told me that the D44 and the 4-gear auto tranny are very long. that´s why the rear driveshaft is very very short. and that´s why lifts cause more vibes than with the manual tranny and a rear D35.

here´s a pic where you can see how much i needed to drop the TC plate with an MML.

with these screws you can change the angle of the axle. that may also fix your problem:

tiny terror I don't. But my jeep's still viby.

activelydying i don't think anyone has any idea what they are talking about.
06-15-2007 05:45 PM
JCS05Rubi My 05 doesnt. Atleast, I didnt see any, and my buddy that did an alignment for me before said the camber wasnt adjustable (we are talking about adjustable camber whodiggies right)?

I cannot agree more man. When i first heard it i'm like wtf.. cams (camshafts) are inside the engine am i going crazy or something.. i havent had any experience with them but at that thread many said they use them to get rid of vibes...
06-15-2007 05:31 PM
tiny terror I always think of Cam Neely.
06-15-2007 05:30 PM
MR.CLIFFORD I always think of Cam Sprockets.
06-15-2007 05:09 PM
AzTJ when you say cams, say the whole thing, Cam Bolt..... when someone says cam, they are usually refering to a camshaft.
06-15-2007 04:46 PM
Triple88a i thought you can use those to get rid of vibes.. there was another user talking about it in another thread.. I thought i might give it a shot here..

I thought there were also cams on rears too thats why i mentioned it.

However that is most certainly not your problem.

Give me a call, you have my number. I'm available Mon, Tues, Thurs next week, with Tuesday being the best. Whatever works for you.

4.0l sahara controlle arms? what are cams?
06-15-2007 12:43 AM
AzTJ Cams? WTH are you talking about?
06-14-2007 10:13 PM
Triple88a so tiny you didnt have any vibes with the mml and the tranny drop but now you removed the tranny drop and your vibes are going crazy? Install the washers back then. Cant you use/adjust the cams or whatever they are called to get rid of the vibes also?

How come when you guys get together and wrench, it's just getting together, but when I'm looking for help I'm going to "let the Marines handle it for" me? Hmmmmmm????

(I refuse to admit defeat, I'm just pissed and frustrated)
