Well, I did it. I finished installing my JB Conversions SS SYE and T.W. drive shaft, plus JKS upper adj. control arms. Now that I am thru, I could do it in about half the time. I made a few mistakes along the way that screwed me up pretty good.
I forgot to disco the front driveshaft at the transfer case before I seperated the 2 halves of the case, so when I put the impact on the yoke nut, the vibrations made the magnet fall out and break in 3 pieces. ( If you live in Htown you'll laff at this...I found another magnet at a dealership by the dome, so I drove over there from Kingwood. when I got there the bag had been opened and re-sealed with something else in it.. SHI^!! but they found another one... in Conroe. So, 3 hours and $30 dollars in gas later I had a $5.00 part
I had a rough time getting the oil pump splines to line up with the shaft, took about 30 minutes to get the cover on all the bolts in and torqued properly,.... then I noticed a familiar 3" long spring on the floor.....back apart, clean off my old RTV, new RTV then back under the Jeep, install spring, and a fight with the oil pump.
The JKS control arms were pretty easy too. contrary to the instructions, I removed both of them together. The muffler made the passenger side one a pain. then I set the pinion angle using a floor jack on the front part of the diff. I then measured the distance and made both control exactly the same. then it was just a matter of putting them in. same hassle with the muffler, but no biggie
JKS grease zerks don't have the check ball in them, just the nipple. so when I put the grease gun on one and pumped, then pulled the gun off, the grease quickly exited the fitting faster than it went in. Note to self: replace zerks.
Anyway, I learned alot by doing it 100% by myself.
It was even kinda fun, and best of all vibes are gone.
PS. the yoke at the TC output shaft uses bolts to conecct to the DS, atleast that's what came with the kit. allen head socket bolts would be MUCH,MUCH better, I had to grind down a half inch, opened end wrench to fit.
