Dang Vibration

Can't cure this vibrating shaft.
Transfer case wobbles from 15-22 mph, the more gas you give it, the more it wobbles. Running Breeze 4.5" SPOA, and TT YJ spring conversion. Stock driveshaft with the TT 1" extended yoke. First my pinion angle was too high, shimmed it and the angles are perfect now, but it still vibreates. Changed long arm and that didn't help either. Next step is a case bucket and new mounts.

Re: Dang Vibration

I am assuming your U-joints are good. otherwise I would say it's in your mount.

Re: Dang Vibration

Re: Dang Vibration

Had the same sort of problem 2 years ago, turned out one of the u-joints in the d-shaft that goes between the trans and t-case had siezed up. another thing to check.

Re: Dang Vibration

If your T-case mounts are good(metal and rubber) then I would look to the drive shaft extended yoke. I dought that the yoke has been balanced after welding. Esp after you put it on another shaft. I had a TT one as well (before my Sumos)and it vibed pretty bad.

Re: Dang Vibration

Oh and if your rubber is soft they are good. the stiff ones are the ones that are bad and most likely cracking.

Re: Dang Vibration

Depending on how much lift you have your drive shaft angle will change. If you have more than 15* of angle on your shaft it will begin to vibrate. Really to eliminate vibes on high angles is a cv which can be quite expensive. I picked up a rear yota shaft from a 84 truck. Cost my $45 I have to get it shortened about 5" and get a large tcase flanged machined alittle so the shaft will line up, and since I running yota axles everything should bolt right up.
And for about $150 I should have a shaft that cures most of my problems. Way less than I custom built CV shaft.
