I did something to it today!

Ubolt straps! :-)

Cost me about 15$ total, including the cobalt bit.



Old

I had play in the u joint with the straps completely tight.



drilled out the threads with a 5/16 bit.



Boom! Done. Only took me about 15 minutes and there's absolutely no play anymore :-)

I had to buy a yoke cause mine was so wore out, but I went with a u-bolt style also, with no regrets! It eliminated all my vibration.

I didn't really have bad vibes from the back but the fact it had so much play made me really uneasy. my front has really bad vibes though and both yokes hold the ujoints loosely. I'll probably be doing this to the front as well.

While looking around under the Jeep I found the trans mount was crap, again! So this time I went with a poly mount. We'll see how long this one holds up...

Half broke



New poly one. AutoZone credited what I paid for the first one toward the poly so I got it for 12$ :-)



I really like the fact that it doesn't use studs like the other one. Just waiting to get messed up by a rock.



Aaaaand.... Done. All without dropping the skid plate. See, the TC drop is good for something :-)

Do you still have the stock motor mounts? I read somewhere that you didn't want to mix the poly and rubber mounts on the engine and trans bc the poly will be a stress point with the additional flex from the rubber at the engine and may cause cracking at the trans.

That being said, i dont have any experience with poly mounts on my jeep. I'm just repeating what I had read a while back when I was shopping for motor mounts.

cracking at the trans? You mean the mount, right.?

Because if there is a chance I'll crack the trans housing that mount is coming off asap!

I can't seem to find what I was reading, but I still found in a quick search that you want to match your materials for vibration control.

Hmm, I'm going to try it out for a few days. If it sucks I'll just get another oem one

Update.

The poly mount sucks. I'm getting drive line vibes with it just running. I guess I'll return it tomorrow but I really don't want another ****ty duralast. Anyone have suggestions...

Swapped the rubber trans mount back in and it's better.

Also, 8.8 just moved way up the list. The rear end is whining and humming pretty bad. I plan on flat towing it to Arizona so I don't want any problems. Plus the lady ok'ed it which is the main deciding factor lol

New sticker to remind me of Michigan.




Looks like I've got a line on a 8.8 4.10 for 150$
