Decided I am just going to have to do a dual exhaust. It sounds so cool on the 4.0

I to am looking at a new exhaust as mine is rusting out and noisy

What is a best flow master for a low noise with the 4.0
I had a 44 on my ZJ 5.2 and it sounded great is it gonna be as good with the 4.0?

I have a Gibson exhaust and love the sound from it. Not to loud either.

Well, greasing the shaft made no difference. Still as strong as ever. However, I am about 99% sure it is the DC joint binding.
It happens:
- On acceleration mainly in 1st and 2nd
- Going up hills
- Bouncing on bumps

All situations where there is significant torque in the driveline (pinion rotates = sharper angle at DC) or the suspension is stretched out (again, sharper angle).

I was thinking about how expensive it would be to go ahead with the stretch so early, then I had a Doh! moment. I can just swap out for some new 3" springs and shocks. That will bring me down to where I'm not binding and I wanted lower springs anyway. Plus it's way cheaper.

I might be thinking of someone else, but aren't you trying to track down a noise coming from the rear end of your jeep? Did you ever get around to pulling the diff cover and inspecting the gears?

Yes. Diff fluid had gotten water in it but everything was in great shape. Refilled with some cheap fluid to clean it out. Will be replacing in a few days but I would have had some noise change if the fluid was the cause. Symptoms just point to the shaft, plus no noise with no shaft in.

Yeah I had a similar situation except my gears broke apart. If the inspection was good, then it's def the shaft.

If your DS is binding then there should be marks/damage on it.

Good luck.

That is a wicked rig. Rear axle stretch and a highline up front?

There are marks but I have had binding issues before which I fixed with adj lowers and it's hard to say whether the marks are from that or this.

Had a pegged oil pressure gauge after going off the road the other day (snow storm) so I changed the oil sender unit and sure enough it fixed the problem. $48 and about 10 min worth of work.

How much effort did it take to fit YJ doors on?

Very little. replaced the striker with yj stile strikers and sleeve spacer using the stock tj upper striker hole. So no drilling then you just have to remove the speaker grill for the window cranks to work.
