SYE Question

Hey, I have came across a SYE rough country kit thats going for $125 and was wondering.... Do I have to have both a SYE and a CV drive shaft all at once? Or can I wait a bit to get the CV drive shaft.

Right now I have a 2inch BB with a 1.25inch BL and a 1inch MML. I eventually want to work my way up to a 4inch suspension lift. Just wondering if I can do it in stages.... im still in college and money is tight

Thanks for your help

Something has to adjust the driveshaft length to compensate for suspension moving up and down. If you remove your slip yoke... you need a driveshaft that will expand and contract. ( I'm sure there is a specific name for it but I don't know what it is )

.

Life with Christ can be explained like a Jeep...
Being in the Word... grows your tire size.
Prayer... gains more ground clearance.
Fellowship... Is like having a good spotter.

The more of these you have... the easier it is to get over obstacles in your path.

well considering the driveshaft you have now uses a slip yoke, and the SYE is called a Slip Yoke Eliminator, no.

you don't need to buy the CV shaft at the same time as the SYE, you just can't use a rear driveshaft. you'll have to drive around in front wheel drive (4x4)...which won't hurt anything.

I just can't go over 55 right? haha, im thinking about holding off till I have the CV driveshaft. Would the SYE and CV driveshaft work with my 2 inch BB and 1.25 BL for a bit until I get a lift kit?

As was said, you could just leave the rear DS off. But ideally you do the SYE, new DS and the lift at the same time. The new DS is typically longer to compensate for the lift, so you at least have to do the lift and DS at the same time if you use the front wheel drive option.

you also need adjustable upper control arms in the rear to reset your pinion angle

CV driveshaft and SYE will do nothing for you if it's not setup correctly (pinion angle same as the driveshaft angle)

don't forget you can pull the front CV shaft from any junkyard XJ or TJ and have a local driveline shop modify it to fit...typically less than $100.
