Actually I had vibrations from both front and rear shafts. Is there a reason you are so defensive over Tom woods products? I simply stated that it is funny that a bunch of threads are popping up...

Funny how all of the recent complaints about vibrations are with Tom woods drive lines.

Another thought... If it is when you let off the gas only, that could be an indication that the rear pinion angle isn't right, and/or the the control arm bushings are soft and allowing a lot of...

Stock caster is only 4.2 degrees or so. By running 5.5 you're just making the pinion point further down.


The play is the dual cardan joint could be the problem. Or many other things. If it...

Nice thinking. I evaluate cost as time usually as well. How much money I can make in the time I would spend doing a particular chore. Most often it makes sense to pay someone else to do or in this...

You're running way more caster than you need to. This is main the pinion angle at the differential higher than needed.
Granted 1-2 degrees may not be the difference but you should know. Id bet...

I've posted in several other threads. Actual breaking was not my problem. Tolerances were. I could grab one end of my driveshaft (axle side) and slide move the shaft up and down on one axis. (Not a...

Stay away from Tom woods driveshafts unless you want to rebuild them with quality joints after 10k miles. Cheap Chinese junk that is nothing but problems. I wish I would have listened as I had to...

21k on mine with a ton of tread.
45k miles on 35" km2s on my f150 with a Detroit in the rear, sold them with half tread.

There is a retaining clip of sorts inside the diff. Not a traditional c clip that needs removed but there is a bit of resistance to pop it out. If the break is on the outside, yeah, just pull it...

That one sucks because it moves the tire out and places more stress on the mounts. Teraflex actually has a flag round plate that relocates the tire up, and not out. Their website just makes it...

I would make an effort to pull the entire shaft out.

The wheel bearing/hub doesn't require the stub as I understand. Removing the shaft inside of the break may be tricky because of the...

4.10 is a waste. 4.56 is great for that setup. I have a 2012 six speed on 35s with 4.10s stock, got to feeling under geared and under powered. Swapped to 4.88s which is way better, but slightly on...

That is going to be some low gearing on 35s with the 3.6 and six speed. I'm running 4.88s on the same setup and its as low as I would want to go.
