92 yj rear t-seal...again

Just replaced last week..all was cleaned..now it's leaking some again. I have a 4"suspension lift. Any advice without going to a sye kit (don't have the money for that.)

Could be the slip yoke has a groove in it from the old seals and dirt. That can cause new seals to leak.
Another possibility is that the bushing inside the tcase tailcone is worn allowing the slip yoke to wobble a bit and cause it to leak.

Ya really need an SYE with a 4" lift...

Been so putting off the SYE. I'll get another seal..try it again and inspect the shaft better. Bearing seemed tight when I changed the seal last week.
If it continues..I'll look to see if I can hook up with the slip yoke eliminator.
Thanks

Make sure to oil the seal where the shaft rides. I doubt it would leak within a weak. But maybe. Take your time. Don't kink it. Or it's gonna leak. If it keeps leaking on ya let it go keep the fluid up and for the love of God get a SYE and drive shaft.

I used petroleum jelly on the shaft...made sure all was really clean and slid it in.. 4 days of driving and it's leaking. I have the transfer case drop. I'll give it one more try and hopefully helps our buys me more time

Man... I need more coffee

I'd think the driveshaft would be suspect. No grooves or abnormal wear?

If you're avoiding a SYE because of money, i understand. But if it's some other reason....just do it! You will feel the effect right away, no more vibration, you don't even feel the drivesaft moving, no more TC drop, so your underside looks almost flat. Well worth the money....but only if you can swing it. Good Luck
