No worries Nick. Doubt he had time to read up on the subject to properly "execute" the process.

Hey guys thank you for all you... Interesting comments. Self diagnosed to slave cylinder pissing out the second I drive it after vacation, replaced it and now have 0 vibration, don't know how it makes sense but whatever. And it's really just my woods vehicle, slip yoke is on it's way, pitch is correct, was told by plenty of people that sway bar is unneeded, building longer rear t-bar today.

Ah...the old slave cylinder drive line vibration problem. Gets all of us. (Kidding. That's crazy that it seems to have fixed your problems)

It's cool that you're doing a traction bar and SYE. That will help.

Can't see where anybody has recommended a sway bar.

Curious to see pics of your SOA rig when you get back to it.

Yea I'm still not understanding how it fixed the vibration, unless something wasn't tight before. I'm new on the forum so I don't really know how to use it. I'm lookin for some tires as we speak, any recommendations.

There is a saying in the military;

Good initiative, poor judgement.


Great on ya for jumpin in and doing some upgrades. Bad on ya for not properly researching.

This brings another little saying to mind, one my Dad taught me many years ago:

A Smart man learns from his mistake; a Wise man learns from the mistakes of others.

This exact phrase is why we all post on an internet forum, for others to laugh and learn from our mistakes. Every time I do something dumb (In regards to my Jeep) I post it. This way others can search and not make the same mistakes. If you search and ask questions, there is very little you can do without getting at least a little guidance from others who have gone before you.

Track bar =/= Traction bar.

You don't need a longer track bar, you need a traction bar. Two different things. Traction bar is a term more commonly used in hot rods and drag cars. We off-roaders more often call it an anti-wrap bar. It is a bar connected at 3 points (2 at the axle, and one connected to a shackle, connected near/to transfer skid). This allows the bar to move with axle flex, but does not allow the axle to rotate.

You also need to do a LOT more to your rig to make it even remotely safe. Steering, rear drive line, brake lines, shocks, etc.

Not sure why we're still jumping this guy's ***. He never mentioned a track bar. He said "t-bar". He has also stated it's just a woods vehicle. He's upgrading the other stuff, getting new tires, SYE, etc.

I'm kind of curious to see the progress. If it's Offroad only, he wo.t have the limitations we have. (my wife has to be able to drive my jeep)

Extrapolating from his post, he was talking about a track bar. You wouldn't say I'm buidling a longer traction bar, since the Jeep never had one. His Jeep did have a track bar, which he stated in another earlier post that was too short.



Woods vehicle or not, without properly setting it up will lead the jeep to destroy itself (Hence the vibes felt from a stock drive train SOA)

Isn't bump steer a bigger issue when you're turning a lot or are driving on uneven surfaces? IE in the woods?

Turning is a relative issue when it comes to bumpsteer. Wait. "Relative" isn't the right word. "Involuntary". That's the one I'm thinking of.
