You just can't fix stupid!!!
A SYE does not improve drive line angles. What it does do is replace your slip yoke with a fixed one on a shorter more sturdy output shaft and enables you to run a dual CV driveshaft which will eliminate drive line problems as far as angles from lifts. Do some research on them; theres several how to's in the sticky section on the YJ forum. Also most if not all SYE kits remove some of the inner bearings from the output shaft; so if indeed you have a bad bearing you could be killing two birds with one stone. Also please try to refrain from using text talk on here, it helps older people like me to understand what your talking about when you speak english. If you have further issues drop me a PM and ill try to help yall out as much as possible.
Pretty basic just drop your drive shaft grab a hold of the dang thing an see if you can wiggle it side to side or up an down. Also you can drop your drive shaft, jack up your rearend, and put it on jack stands and have a friend spin the tires while your listening for grinding. Im going to guess most of your vibration problems are from not having a SYE an CV drive shaft. I had some pretty bad vibration as well with my lift and tires ( 4inch lift, on 32s ). Cant say for sure if my pinion bearing was part of that problem cause I serviced the entire rearend when I did mine. IF you do plan on installing your SYE yourself I can not stress enough how much a good QUALITY pair of snap ring pliers are important.
I did todo the lift on this jeep but it seemed to be done very well....I have had almost no drive line vibrations until recently when I broke something. The noises have now started to come and go and are now happening when it's not in gear so I fear it may be a little to late. But next week I'm going to fix it starting on Monday so after I pull it apart I will take pics and prob ask for more advice . Thank you for all of your help bc I'm no mechanic
quick question does it stop grinding if you go around say a right or left turn if so which turn? cause the grinding could be a bad wheel bearing as well. If you hear the grinding and you make a right turn and it stops then it would be your driver side wheel bearing. If you make a left turn and it stops it going to be passenger side.
