I really want to do the SYE on my 231. I rebuilt it last year in the jeep and put a new OutPut shaft in it bc it was bent and causing a crazy vibration... I should have done it then but I did not have the crazy money it takes to get a CV drive shaft... I have to do one thing at a time but I know my D35 will hit the highway someday....

Great write-up

Now that I have 33's I really need to do this. I have a D30 with 4:10 gears waiting in the garage to match the 8.8 I am getting.

Where did you get the shock mounts? How did you decide where to place them?

Any advice on setting up the brakes?

Thanks.

Mines complete. I used a proportioning valve from a WJ. It only has two outlets you need three so for the rear lines I used a T.

I also did the double booster and a big master killer brakes.

Sent from underneath my Jeep

I got my spring plates and shock mounts from RuffStuff, nice and Beefy

Also I raised my shock mount to where it doesn't hang below the axle tube anymore.

Now I need upper relocation brackets though

You don't have to buy a $400+ brand new CV style shaft. You can simply go to the junkyard and pick up a Cherokee XJ front driveshaft. Hop onto google, find a local driveline shop and go have the XJ front shaft shortened.

XJ front driveshaft is CV and can be used in the rear of the YJ, just needs to be shortened and balanced.

According to the Tom Woods website (http://www.4xshaft.com/driveline101.asp), your driveshaft angle is set up for a CV shaft, not a stock shaft. The two ujoint angles are supposed to be equal or "phased".

I find it interesting that you have no vibs.

This is true.

Standard non-sye setup calls for equal opposing angles. If your driveshaft comes off the tcase yoke down at 3* (for example) then your driveshaft would need to come off of the pinion at up 3*... The current setup may cause addtl strain to the pinion bearing and rear of the transfercase. I've seen a few bent stock output shafts, so be careful.

The correct setup w/SYE is to point the axle yoke directly at the tcase yoke, then drop 2-3* to allow for spring wrap.
