What do you mean it will fit but you need a longer shaft? The shaft fitment (length) is what Im referring to. If the SYE were short enough and you run enough lift the shaft could separate. Not the best of situations.

What do you guys think of the Tom Woods SYE kit. It is a stock shaft which is modified. How would you compare this to a standard (non HD) SYE kit?

In regards to a stock front drive shaft, do you think it would work with a 6.5" lift and a standard non short SYE kit (Rugged ridge for instance)? 4.0 with Aw4 and 8.25 setup.

How would you compare the strength of a front D/S to a standard Tom Woods drive shaft.

Hey sorry if this was already brought up, I couldn't find it, but yesterday on te trail I had to take my front drive shaft off because one of the bolts was missing that attaches it to the yoke but I didn't realize it before but it looks like my front drive shaft has a sye. Do those come stock? It wasn't lifted when I got it and I put 3 " on it with no vibrations. I'm not sure what tcase I have but it's an 89 with a 4.0

I just did a rugged ridge sye this weekend and used a stock front drive line from an auto w/ a 231 t/c and it worked great . also on a 97 xj with 6 in lift.

Yeah, I ended up doing a front driveshaft and PORC HD SYE for less than the TW one, and I didnt have to have $100.00 tied up in a core charge.

you want a yoke on the 8.8?

dont think anyone has done that. besides, the flange setup is MUCH stronger than a yoke

Ok thanks. I will keep the flange on th 8.8 I will be doing a iro h&t. Can I still use a front stock ds or will I have to mod the shaft length? Has any one done the iro 8.8 weld on truss?

I did a quick search, but could not find an answer to this - Hopefully it is not one of those things that has been dead-horsed on here....

I have a 98 with 231. I have had the IRO 4" long-arm kit installed (LOVE IT, BTW) and have a little bit of vibration at low speed. Contrary to popular beliefs, I DO drive at lower speeds sometimes, so I had my shop order me IRO's H&T SYE. I also have a Dana 44 Rear from an early XJ that I hope to install eventually.

Should I wait & do the SYE and the 44 at the same time? Have any of you guys that put 44s in your XJs had to change the driveshaft length?

Thanks

Well I guess I found the spot to ask a ? about SYE. This is my first jeep it's a 96 XJ country and I just put a Rusty's 3" with new spring packs on it, and I have Drive line Vibes now. I tried a 1" TC drop and I swear that just made it worse a lower speeds but a little better in mid range and same at highway speed. This is my wife’s DD and we take it camping a lot so I need it to ride smooth at 70+ will the Tom Woods SYE and CV drive shaft do the trick?? Also I'm thinking about taking it to a shop so they can shim the axle if needed. I had the jeep down for 1 week doing the lift, and at this point I just want it running. Money isn't too big of an issue if. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

So I read about 95% of this thread, and I've gained a lot a valuable info on the subject and I want to thank everyone who gave info!

I would like to just confirm what I've read 110% before I bite the bullet and drop the cash (as little as it is, it's still tight for me from just getting out of college). I've got a 3" zone lift in my 99 xj, and I have vibes at 50-60 km/h. I'm looking at the 231 HnT SYE to cure the vibes. From what I've read, If I do the HnT I can then run a front cv style shaft from the same year xj for a rear shaft, correct???

Thanks in advance guys!
