Hey! This place Rocks. I wish I would have found this before.
I have some quick questions for ya: Well let me give you some info first,
I have had my XJ for about 6 months. I owned a YJ for a while but sold it years ago. (regret that)
I bought the XJ with a lift already on it, I know its the rubicon express 4.5" lift (the better of the two)
and since getting it I put some AT's on it cause it wont leave the pavemant much until its paid off.
Since putting the new tires on I have noticed that there is a vibration occuring at hwy speeds that has gotten pretty horrific.
I rebalanced the tires and got an alignment and no change.
I went to a local shop and they said that I needed some degree shims for the rear end.
I have an cv drive shaft in the rear and a chrysler 8.25 axle (thank god!).
So it is my ujoint makin a fuss..... I can do simple mechanical work so I figured I would do this myself and svae some money.
So my questions are (finally
1. what does putting the shims in entail?
2. should I put in a new rear U-joint too? if so whats the part #
3. What degree do I need?
Thanks in advance, chaz
