axle wrap question
Here's the question:
I think I am getting a little axle wrap. When outside the Jeep ('93 wrangler with 3.5" lift) watching it take off from a stop (this is when I feel something clunking around)the pinion rotates upward about two inches. Would this be enough to cause the heavy vibration in the drive shaft/U joints? I don't have any vibration under normal driving, just upon take-off or up hill where back springs compress and higher than normal torque is in the rear.
I have a t-case lowering kit and degree shims. I'm thinking about taking the tcase lowering kit off since the springs have softened up.
I torqued down the spring pads, and have replaced both U joints.
If this is indeed axle wrap then I have read the remedies. I just don't want to add a leaf or something before making sure.
