MML to fix vibes?
 
Hey all. Im just wondering if anyone has used a 1" MML to reduce small vibes? Im trying to decide if I want to go with a 1" Body + MML combo or crank up the ACOS and get some adjustable uppers.

depends... do you plan on going bigger than 33's and what amout of suspension lift are you going for?

I plan on sticking with the 33's for now cuz I just put them on. The BL would be primarily to keep the fan shroud.

body lift to keep your fan shroud? :confused: Are you doing a body lift regaurdless? with or without the mml you can still keep your fan shroud. you just relocate it if you dont do the mml.

I was planning on just doing the MML to try and fix the vibes. I thought you had to do a body lift with the MML, can you get enough height on the fan shroud with no body?

the mml will help with very slight vibe but still mite not cure them. you can also lower your t-case alittle with a few washers.

how much total suspension lift do you have right now? In most cases if you dont want to lower the t-case with usually 3.5'' of lift or more you are subject to installing a slip-yoke eleminator and cv drive shaft with adjustible uppers in the rear to set the pinion angle.

Every jeep is different.

if you do just the mml you can trim the fan shroud to make room for clearance. or remove the shroud.

I'd just do the body lift with the mml but thats me

Im at about 3" or so, I have a 3/4" transfer skid drop. I had vibes with my 2" BB on so I got the spacer. On another note would adjustable rear uppers work? Im just trying to avoid the SYE for now, not enough $$ in the pocket.

I had the MML and transfer case drop and had no vibes, but my shifter was hitting the console and popping out of gear. Took the spacers from the transfer case and cut them in half, now no vibes and shifter doesn't hit.

Thanks Tex, I think ill just do the MML and if that doesn't work Ill try the adjustable UCA's. And welcome to the forum and thanks for your help.
