So I wanna' get rid of my t-case drop.
I have an SYE kit on the shelf. I have an 8.8, but don't want to wait that long. I need a d30 with 4:10s first.
So temporarily, I could use the SYE and a Cheriokee driveshaft.
I know you already told me Jeff, but I'm old and I forgot. What year Cheriokee drive shaft works? Is it the front shaft or the rear? Does it need to be cut and balanced? Probably huh?
What else do I need to get rid of the t-case drop, or is just the SYE and the driveshaft it? Any flanges or ?
I'm thinking to head to the boneyard tomorrow to find a DS so I can move forward with this.

See my t-case hanging down? It's ugly and hangs up on rocks.

Like I said before, we are going to be painting Jeff's Jeep at my place. We can probably get some others done but the garage is booked that weekend.

Not sure of the years but it's a wide range. late 80's thru at least mid 90's.

front shaft, make sure it has a cardan joint on the t-case end.

it will have to be shortened. if you have to pay to have it done it will be around $100.

or, get a tom woods.

Pretty sure I have the front DS you are looking for Rik. I'll check when I get home.

If the Jeep is pulling to the left hard when braking is that the caliper? Maybe the right one isn't engaging the piston?

either the left is grabbing too much or the right is not grabbing enough.

more likely the right is bad

Is it one of those things where if you replace one you should replace both? I don't like messing around when it comes to brakes so I'm more than willing to spend the money to be able to stop!

could be a sticking caliper or just a worn right set of pads.

Replace both, and get the rotors turned while you are at it.
Calipers kits and pads are cheap.

That would be great if you have the DS.
I owe you so much beer already dude.
You're gunna' be sloshed at the next campout!

For someone who can completely dismantel a CJ and a simple brake job frightens you, I am suprised.
You take off the wheels,
unbolt 2 retaining bolts holding on the caliper,
buy 2 new calipers with shoes,
have your rotors turned or go buy 2 new ones,
bolt them on,
bleed them,
tires back on,
Done.
Front disc Brakes are easy.
Rear are a little tricky. snap a picture before you take them aprt so you will have a record to put it back the same way.

I think what I said came off incorrectly. I meant that I don't take any short cuts with brakes. I'll go the extra distance with parts and everything brake related.

I put ceramic pads on my front brakes. Didn't notice very much difference, but they don't make as much dust and don't burn so quickly under high heat.

My garage is open this weekend if you wanna' slide on up.
PepBoys charged me $10 per rotor to turn them.

Hey Jeff,

I think that I will be needing a welder this weekend to weld two nuts on the front bumper. I need to relocate my license plate. I got yet another ticket from the same parking nazi named Sanders. He did not like the way I had it installed. I am starting to think that sanders does not like Jeeps.


I will get is relocated and signed off AGAIN and pay my $10.00 AGAIN for a fix it ticket.

WTH. I don't have one on the front either. Bought it that way. Did get a ticket when I was at Mission Bay about a year ago. I just paid the fine. That sucks. What part of town.

My MIG is available as well, so if Jeffs doesn't pan out - you are more than welcome to use mine or anything else you may need that I have.

I'll be working/welding/cutting/grinding/etc in my garage on & off all weekend, so it's no big deal at all.

If ya' wanna play with my new plasma cutter - we can cut your Jeep in 1/2.
