Re: drive shaft problems

Yes you do have a problem there. You need a S.Y.E. installed. Did you lower your t/case? If you haven't I would start there.

Re: drive shaft problems

Did you lower the skidplate? Did you install a SYE kit and a longer driveshaft? That's what will get rid of the vibration. Your u-joints might be operating at too much angle.

The other possibility is that your u-joints are not operating at the same angle. Get a protractor and measure the angle of the transfer case output and compare it to the pinion angle. The pinion should be between 0 and 2 degrees down from the transfer case.

You could take out the seal in the back of the t/case if it's that bad. Try to get it fixed as fast as possible!
