Did you get a front end alignment after you put the lift on? Also, make shure your tires are balanced....

Good luck

Where did you get the SYE from? and why? You don't need it for that lift. Did you install the transfercase lowering spacers?

Lots of guys get talked into the SYE. Maybe I've just been really lucky. Yet, I've had no problems at all.

Are the yokes properly aligned? If you dissembled the driveline at the slip yoke and didn't mark the halves, then you might have reassembled it with the yokes out of "time".This can cause a vibration.

Check the yokes, You might want to check and see if you have bent one of the rear axles. Did you have the vibes before the lift or just after? Did you have them before or after a wheeling trip? I knocked a wheel weight off once and the thing vibrated like a mutha until I got it fixed.


Please keep me updated on this. I want to be able to help others with the same problem later on.

hate to sound redundant but check the balancing again. depending on how much you know and trust the people who balance your tires 34" swampers are not easily balanced. i have very reputable people balance my tires and have had them do it for a number of years. yet still once, about six months ago they werent very accurate and i about bounced off the road on the way home at only 35 mph. and i only have 32" mudders. double check by putting on the stock tires and taking it for a spin, youll look silly but it could save you some headache.
