I too am running no issues with no TC drop or SYE at 3.75" of lift (3" springs and 3/4" lift boomerangs). I do have Brown Dog 1" MML and I set the pinion angle for my driveshaft when I put in my 8.8.

:-)

You do not need that much lift to run 33" tires- go with some boomerang shackles and raise that skid back up!

Since I love to fabricate I made up some shackles from 3/8 x 2 bar stock and some 1" DOM. They are designed to provide only 1/2" of lift, so my total will be 4" instead of the actual 5.25" the PO had in it.

I'll take out the TC drop and run the Brown Dog 1" MML. Then I'll weld the 8.8 perches so the TC shaft and pinion are parallel.

With going to 33's from the 28's I should have more clearance than I'll ever use. If not the SYE, DS and replacing perches are a project for another day.

Thanks for all your experiences and input.

Tom

I'm running a Tom Woods SYE kit and just feel more confident when beating on my rig.
For those who upgraded to a SYE kit what did you do with the old shaft?
Is there any reason to keep it,I don't see any use for it anymore but it's hard for me to throw away any jeep parts.

SYE is my next major mod on my jeep, and like many others, i sort of learn as i go along (most of it from this website). i've got a few questions, and this seems like a good thread to piggyback on instead of starting a new one.

i've got a 3.5" BDS with a 2" BL, and with the vibrations and shimmying i get, it's pretty clear that this is the next mod i need to do. however, i've also still got stock axles with 3.07 gears, so i'm going to need to do an axle swap too.

what order should these mods be done in? SYE/CV first, then axles?

Stock up all parts and do it at the same time.

Thanks for the reply. Why is doing it all at once better than doing one or the other first?

Because switching to a ford 8.8 or other axle will require you to set the pinion angle. If you install the sye and axle at the same time you can call an order the driveshaft with the correct measurement.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

I did my SYE first and wheeled it with the Dana 35 for over a year then swapped in the 8.8 and didn't need to change driveshafts.

That's good you lucked out.

But that is probably the exception not the rule.

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.
If it's supposed to move and doesn't use WD40
