Slip yoke Eliminator question

I have a 3 1/2 BDS lift with 33's can't seem to get rid of the last bit of rear driveline vibe.I'm thinking on installing a SYE Are they worth the $ or should I just put up with it ?What are some of the other benifits ? Thanks ...Larry

I wouldn't put up with it. i have a vibe on mine at 60 mph after my lift and my slave cyl on the clutch just went out for no apparent reason. It's only about 1.5 years old. I don't know if the vibe is responsible but I'm not taking a chance. Vibes can and do eat your u-joints though so it's best to get rid of them. Are you sure it's the drive line thougha nd not a badly balanced tire? I'd hate to drop 500 on the SYE only to find that it didn't work. Anyway, the SYE does work and is worth the money if nothing else works. An added benefit is being able to remove your rear DS for whatever reason and still drive on the front without leaking oil everywhere. you also don't have to worry about the shaft coming out of the case at full droop. you don't necessarily have to get the DS from the supplier either. Local shops can often fab up a new shaft cheaper then online shops.

Thanks Sentinal.Its definately not the tires,happened before and after new wheels.Notice my vibe mostly at lower speeds 10-40 mph.Also heard SYE eliminates transfercase drop which would gain me an extra 1" of clearance?? You know we can all use that extra inch

Hooked up the SYE this wnter it works great. Go to Tom Woods driveshaft (websearch) Theyve got the AA SYE kit and a nice driveshaft and custom fit it to your measurementys for $525. Cheaper than and a better product than youll get from 4wdHardware

that is where I bought mine too but I saw some other place selling the exact same kit for $475. so search this sight. the aa hd kit and tom woods cv ds are very nice and it was not that hard but definately get a pair of snap ring pliers.

There is a place here in Michigan called Koz's Offroad

www.kozoffroad.com

last I knew, he was selling an AA SYE and custom drive shaft for just over $400. I don't know what shipping would hit you, but I got mine there and was very pleased with the service.

The AA directions are decent, and the install was really pretty easy and straight forward. I second the snap ring plier necessity.
