SYE Who has some Info??

been having some vibrations on my recent install of a 3" rough country suspension lift. Wanted to know what you guys/gals thought. Should I drop the cash and invest in a SYE and a near rear driveshaft, or should I go from a 6 degree shim on the rear springs and go to an 8 or 10 degree shim in an attempt to skip the sye. Everyone I have talked to says the angle on my drive shaft is not that bad, but agree that it is the root of my problems. Any help would be appreciated. I did install the transfer lower brackets if that helps.

i have a rough country lift to. did the same thing. The shims that are in there are to much. You should go with the 2.5 angle shims. if that dosen;t stop the vibrations. go with the cv joint drive shaft and change out the output shaft of the tranfer case.

You have too much shim already is what sounds like your problem. When you're talking about a standard driveshaft with one u-joint at each end (non-CV), the tcase yoke and the pinion yoke need to be parallel. So no matter how much lift you put in, the rule is the same. By dropping your tcase, you only changed the angle of your output yoke about 2.5 degrees. So you compensate for that by putting in 2.5 degree shims on the rear perch to rotate the pinion up accordingly. When I ran a CV shaft with a 3.5" and 4" lift, I used 6 degree shims. A CV shaft is a different set of rules. Why did you use 6 degree shims? I would bet if you simply changed to 2.5 degree shims, your problem would be eliminated. Then again, a SYE with a CV shaft is certainly a better solution.

Thanks for the advice guys. The reason for the 6 degree shim is that is what came on hte spring assembly. Hey Idaho, how about that hardtop?

I think both of you should get back with those guys and let them know they're sending the wrong shims with the kit. I wonder how many others out there didn't know and thought the only fix was an SYE. I mean, 6 degrees is perfect for an SYE and 3-4" of lift. Seems almost suspicious don't it?
