Drill and tap

My TJ had a Rubicon Express "Drill and Tap" kit installed and I just replaced the driveshaft--after breaking it. Now, there's a vibration--and I've noticed the shaft from the transfer case that attach's to the driveshaft is slightly bent. That's probably causing the vibration(at least that's what has been determined). Question is--will a "normal" slip yoke eliminator kit solve that vibration, and since a "drill and tap" kit was originally done and I have a shiny new "drill and tap" altered driveshaft which is different than the usual driveshaft--can it be done? I'm told yes--but I need an additional part. Not sure what that part is. Can anybody help with this?

A heavy duty SYE similar to the the one that Advance Adapters sells will include a new transfer case output shaft for the rear drive shaft. The Drill and Tap drive shaft will not bolt up. You can probably replace the flange on the drive shaft with a u-joint and then it will bolt up. Use the Google and read some SYE threads or watch some you-tube about Hack and Tap and heavy duty SYE installs. You will see what parts you need and don't need.

A new Gallup opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
