Slip yoke eliminator problem?

I just had an Omix- ADA ( Rugged Ridge ) SYE installed into my 99 231 transfer case by one of my local 4x4 shops. I brought the TC into the shop and after picking it up last week I noticed there's about 3/8" play between the front and rear yokes when rotating them, the stock case had very little play before they installed the SYE... Is this normal????

By the way the shop keeps putting me off as to a straight answer.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Play in the chain more than likely

I'm with speedbucket here, most likely play in your chain, although if it wasn't that way prior to taking it to them I can understand the reason for questioning. I thought my chain was stretched, ordered a new one, they're the same length so put my old one back in.

Now I can stick my finger into the tcase thru the drain plug and can physically lift the chain probably 1/4" maybe more, so I know it "bounces" slightly but it has never jumped or slipped and seems all is good. I've never had issues, so I'm gonna drive it like i stole it. Plenty of other things to worry about if this isn't broke.

Ya that was our first thought, slack or play in the chain but the TC was brought to the shop with with very little slack, thats his concern..

The shaft/bearings centerline does not change with a sye, so if it is different then the tooth depth may have been slightly different from the factory one to the new one, or they didn't put the same chain back on

I bet it was loose when you took it in and you never paid attention. Or else they swapped chains

I've seen brand new chains with more play than that.

You also have to account for the machining of the interface splines on the new shaft.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
