I had a shop put it in for me in the end, so I assume they got it right but I don't know for sure. They wouldn't warranty the work because I pulled the shaft and yolks off a parts jeep. I'll do the next one myself, but just didn't trust myself with snow on the ground to not mess something up and make it worse

I will say I enjoy how quiet the jeep is without the front shaft on, didn't realize how far gone the old shaft really was until I got it off.

At what MPH range are you getting vibrations? I just put in a JY shaft myself (from a JZ) and adjusted the pinion angle the best I could (eyeballing it). It kinda has some noise at lower speeds but when you get going they seem to go away.
