A question regarding lifts????
I just finished putting a 4" RE spring lift on my 1990 YJ, it also has 6" shackles and 3" body lift which I don't think the body lift has anything to do with, but when I took it out for a ride I noticed a drive line vibration more when take your foot off the gas then when accelerating. I noticed that my rear drive shaft out of the transfer case about 1 to 2" further than what it was before. I believe this is probably the culprit, but my real question is. Do I need to install a SYE or could I go with a newer double U-joint drive shaft or do I need both??? Building on a budget you know
You have 5" of lift which always necessitates a slip yoke eliminator and a double cardan driveshaft. They always come as a pair.
Fear not, they can be had quite cheaply. If you can find a 90's Cherokee or early 90's grand Cherokee, steal the front driveshaft and have it cut and balanced to the specs you'll need by measuring. The SYE is only $160 and is easy to install. You just need a good pair of snap ring pliers, some basic hand tools and some patience. And an ability to comprehend the English language. That's it.
Are you still planning on running those 31" tires (with ~8" of lift) in your profile with that amount of lift?
If so, you've got a unique sense of balance.
No as soon as I finished I looked at it and said looks like bike tires on there (lol). Sad part is my 31 Pro Comps are brand new. Ya know anyone willing to trade down. I'd like to go to at least 35's. I live in central Pa. Next step is a Lokka for the front diff.
Ditch that 3" BL man. That's crazy too much BL. Drop down to a 1" Daystar.
Put your tires on CL. I bet they sell quick. Where I live, good MTs sell fast and for nearly new prices. That or post up an ad for a trade and see what happens.
