Rear Adjustable Control Arms / SYE Mod

My Jeep has started to have some drive line vibes. I changed the U-joints and I can see that the drive shaft is at a bad angle. I have a TC drop that came with my lift but I don't think its doing a good job. Could it be something else?? I don't know!!! Just by eye balling it, I feel like its the angle being off. I have an angle finder, and when I check what would the difference be to cause vibes?? couple degrees or like 10 degrees??? That would confirm it for me.

If that is the problem or not, I will find out. My next project needs to done anyways and it could fix my vibes. I am going to install upper and lower rear adjustable control arms, SYE kit, CV Driveshaft, and rear adjustable track bar. I have a 2002 TJ sport with a Rubicon Express 3.5 inch lift on 33 x 12.5. probably going with the advance adapter SYE and Adam's Driveshaft. Core 4x4 control arms with the Currie jonny joints and a Rubicon Express adjustable rear track bar. I have read a ton of forums stuff and have formed my own questions from them. I wanted my own thread on this for reference. Please don't start fighting whats wrong and whats right. I just want to go over my procedures and see if anyone has good info on setting up the control arm and the order that leads up to the length of the new drive shaft. I am totally new and I am open for any suggestion. Thanks

First I want to cycle my suspension and make my bump stops centered. I will loosely put on the track bar and make sure nothing hits. Makes sense! My rear end is def pushed forward and not in the center of the wheel well. I would like it to move back some but I don't know if I should or not. I know that the more I push it back, it will hit the gas tank. How much attention should I pay to that???? Now, after I get that done. Will I be ready to set the pinion angle??? I will install the SYE. Afterwards, if I pushed the axle back the drive shaft will be too short?? I am assuming it will be. If I take the drive shaft off and use a piece of conduit to replicate a drive shaft. Get the pinion as close as I can with the conduit. After that I should have the control arms set to a close length. Than I will square up the axle with the frame. Looks like a come along will help with that. Then I will center the body over the axle with the adjustable track bar and cv style relocation bracket. After I get all that done, and I am happy with all the adjustments, then I measure my driveshaft length. Once I get the drive shaft install it and double check my angles and torque everything down and I'm done.

That's how I am planning on doing it. Please give plenty of feed back and insight. I'm really not interested in hearing everyone why I am using one product over another. As far as the install goes though, I do look forward to seeing the info come in and I will def appreciate the time took to reply

Thanks

Your definitely on the right track and sounds like you have done your research. Good work.

A dc shaft will not move that much when you cycle your suspension to full bump/droop. IIRC, my previous sye/dc shaft only moved about an inch at full travel.

Yes--check your bumpstops (with springs removed). Check for interference anywhere and adjust accordingly to remove for that interference. More than likely, you ll adjust for shock length or so your tires dont mash into the fender.

Get your sye installed, install your control arms to set for bump and measure for your driveshaft, then order (with the tcase drop removed). Outfits like Adams have been doing this long enough that when you tell them your measurement, they can build it within spec and you wont have any issues (many will say Tom Woods though....)

Move your axle as far back as you can. When you are at full bump, the axle actually travels in an arc, with it as far back as you can, it will center in the wheel well. On my rig, I have about less than half an inch clearance from the gas tank skid.

The track bar will be easy. The rig, with the track bar disconnected, will essentially center itself. As a reminder...torque everything when its on the ground with full weight of vehicle.

Advance adapters is a good kit, thats what I first ran. I will say though, that if you ever plan on going higher (even with a tummy tuck), go ahead and opt for a super short sye from jb conversions.

I don't have much to add to tworley's reply other than I think I you would be much happier with a Metal Cloak rear adj trackbar than a RE.

Also you might already know this, but just in case....you are going to want to have your pinion angle match your driveline angle. So I would set it that way (get it close) with your adj control arms, then take your measurements for your DL. Then when you install your DL, you can make your final adjustments to the control arms to get the pinion angle perfect.

Thought I had a pic where I showed how close my axle is to the gas tank at full bump...We ended up trimming the savvy skid to clear the track bar bracket...

But I suppose this could give you an idea.



Agree with dextreme too--consider currie, metalcloak, or JKS for a trackbar. A member recently shared a story and photo of his RE track bar snapping under normal driving conditions.

Thanks for the response!!! I'm def going go with the better rear track bar. When centering my bump stops in the center of the lower perch, will that not work with moving the axle back towards the center of the wheel well????? Thanks for that drive line picture. I have seen it before but it's still valuable info and the actually getting a visual, it makes perfect sense.

I agree. Another option, which I used, is to use an axle end CV relocation track bar bracket in conjunction with my JKS rear adjustable track bar. The bracket tips the track bar forward slightly allowing a little more tank clearance, and the angles are good.

I have no experience with RE's rear track bar, nor have I heard any horror stories about them, but we have seen pictures of broken RE front track bars that had diff clearance issues.

Good call, I'm definitely on that!!! For as inexpensive as they are, it's really a no brainer. I have the RE adjustable front track bar and for the trail riding that I'm going to do and no rock crawling, it's probably ok. The Metalcloak gets a lot of rave and since the money is not much different I would rather go with that.

Sounds good. The only thing I would suggest, (if you haven't already done it) is that you cycle your front suspension to full bump both directions and make sure you have enough bump stop that the track bar has clearance,

There's some great info here: https://www.wranglerforum.com/f210/co...gth-70047.html

Ha that's crazy. I was just reading that thread the other day. My budget doesn't allow me to do front and rear at the same time. My drive line vibes are the reasoning that I'm going to do the rear first and the front later. Although, I will be carefully following his advice and some other guys that have that stuff on lock. I have studied a lot of the front end adjustments and the front looks like a fun challenge but I'm going to have to save that one for a few month down the rd. Boooo!!!! Thanks for that link though. Perfect reason why I started this thread!!!

I ordered the Metalcloak rear track bar tonight and I will be ordering my control arms next week. I have a few more question that will help reassure me in my way of doing things.

The first one is!!! Will the relocation bracket that comes with the MetalCloak track bar work with the super short sye and cv drive shaft????? I have heard of cv style relocation brackets. Is there two different types of relocation brackets???? Or is the one that comes with the track bar, the right bracket to use with a cv drive shaft?????

The other question, which is more important to me is!!! I know about centering the bump stops on the middle of the perch and I know about checking everything for clearance. I also know that the axle travels at an arch and the arch is from front to back. What is the more critical adjustment???? Make sure nothing hits, like the gas tank??? Or make sure the bump stops are centered to the middle of the lower spring perch???

Maybe I don't know because I haven't ever done it or saw anyone do it. I could totally see how you could have a situation where the bump stops are centered and the axle is square and you have it in the center or your wheel well and when you cycle the suspension you differential hits the gas tank. Is that possible???? What should my main focus be??? Push the axle back as far I can and make sure nothing hits or binds???? Or!! Make sure at full stuff that my bump stops are centered on the spring perch????

I feel like I should push the axle back as far as I can. Just enough to get the clearance I need when you cycle the rear end. That should be your main focus. Are the two so closely correlated that you will have the same result doing it either way????

That would be good knowledge to know since I will have my track bar and control arms in a couple weeks. After I get those two items installed and setup, I will buy my SYE and then my drive shaft!!!

Chatter Please!!!!

It takes a lot of trial and error. Using the lowers to square the bumpstop/perch and uppers to position your axle where you need it and fine tuning. Take a look at this thread. It has a ton of useful information
https://www.wranglerforum.com/f210/ho...ms-387330.html

As far as a relocation bracket..I dont think you will need one. I have the metalcloak long travel rear track bar and it doesnt bind in any position. Ive ran it with a regular sye and now a super short sye.

Hey, thanks man. Thanks for the link too. I have read that post like a million times. It makes a little more sense every time I read it!!! I think I know the direction I'm going. I think I will figure it out as I do the work. I think the clearance is key while you cycle your suspension. From what I have heard from you and others the axle position will be where it is. I'm feeling pretty good about doing the work. The track bar came with a relocation bracket so we'll see what happens. I might just use it, unless it causes problem. I have been reading your jeep build. Nice work. You have done some extensive mods. Your jeep looks really good!!!!

Does any one know if this metalcloak trackbar relocation bracket, is the properly angled cv style bracket that is used when installing an SYE and rotating the axle. The pic is vague to me and I can't tell if it is or not. I have read so many different threads saying you have to have an angled bracket to not having one at all. Is anyone else running this rear trackbar with this bracket or , did another bracket have to be purchased??? Is anyone not using the bracket it at all after having a SYE installed

Tworley, I'm not going against your advice. I'm just trying to cover all my bases. Plus this is kinda fun. You also said you have a long travel trackbar. Is that the same as one I bought. I only saw one rear track bar for a tj on their page. If we have two different trackbars. Would it be possible that I might need the bracket and if I do is the one that came with it ok or will I need a angled bracket. Or is the one in the picture the angled bracket that I keep referring too. Just a tad confused.

If you ordered the MC rear trackbar, it should come with the bracket (mine did).

It does come with the bracket. I just wasn't sure if that bracket it comes with is the cv angled relocation bracket or just the straight relocation bracket. There might not be two different kinds of brackets. I know RE has two different styles of relocation brackets

Yep, when I first got my Jeep, the PO didn't have adjustable rear control arms installed, so had the straight lift bracket.
Then I adjusted my pinion to be correct, and added the angled bracket with the stock rear track bar. Since it has bushings on both ends, neither bracket was the perfect angle really.

I finally just installed the MC rear trackbar, used the supplied bracket, it's perfect because the other end uses a heim joint.

When I bought mine two years ago they had two options, one being a long travel track bar IIRC. Thats the one i have and it didnt come with a bracket, but I wasnt binding there either at full droop. I am not running a bracket now either...but I also have a different axle setup than most. Every jeep is different.

Enjoy the build and keep us posted.

Just got a message back from Metalcloak!!! They said the bracket is designed for a SYE and is not made to use with standard driveshaft. Kinda sucks I have to wait one to two weeks for shipment, but they emailed me an answer real quick and even followed up with a call. Pretty happy about that. The relocation bracket is the right one for an SYE.

Pretty pumped. Got my parts. Going to get these installed and set up before I do my SYE kit. Hopefully I can get it all done in the next month. Any suggestion or comments or advice will be awesome.

You will want to do them at the same time. Unless you set them at stock length, you will get vibes w/o the SYE and CV shaft.

Cool, thanks for the heads up. I guess my thought was to get the arms and track bar installed and get my axle right. I.e. Square, centered and cycled. Then install the SYE and get rid of my TC drop. Then adjust the pinion angle last. Don't know if that's the right way or not!!!

You could do it that way if it isn't a daily driver. If it is a second vehicle that you occasionaly drive, no biggie. If your new arms adjust down enough to keep you where you are at now, good to go. Don't forget that what you loosen to do the mods on the suspension, wait until the rig is on it's own weight and bounced on before torquing everything to spec.

Quick question!! Does the Jonny joint of my new control arms connect to the frame mount??? Seems right to me, considering that the axle can move left to right. Is it the same for the front too???
