Is a slip yoke eliminator necessary?

Is a slip yoke eliminator necessary?

However, any lift of greater than two inches virtually always requires a slip yoke eliminator installation and CV driveshaft installation, which will limit vibrations and won’t come with any of the issues often present in transfer case drops.

How do I know if I have a slip yoke eliminator?

Yours is a fixed yoke and shorter so theres your SYE aka slip yoke eliminator. The CV style drive shaft you can tell it is one by how it has the to joints right at the fixed yoke on the t-case and it also has that slip joint (where the blue is).

What is a Jeep slip yoke eliminator?

A Jeep slip yoke eliminator, no surprise here, is a kit that eliminates the transfer case slip yoke and adds a fixed flange or yoke instead. This allows for removal of the factory fixed drive shaft and installation of a CV (constant velocity) driveshaft in its place.

How much does it cost to install a Sye Jeep TJ?

TJ Enthusiast The parts will be around $500-$600 give or take. The labor should be several hours, so maybe $300-$400 (I’d always respect to pay more). You only need to do the rear driveshaft, but you WILL need upper adjustable rear control arms at a minimum, which will obviously add to the cost and labor.

What is a slip yoke?

The slip yoke is an important component of any drive shaft assembly. The slip yoke assembly (pictured on the right) is what allows drive shafts and PTOs to flex or “slip” with their given application. The slip yoke is also essential for allowing u-joints to rotate properly with the drive shaft.

What is the point of a slip yoke eliminator?

A slip yoke eliminator kit shortens your transfer case, which then necessitates a longer driveshaft. A longer driveshaft means you’ll have a flatter drivetrain angle, reducing vibrations and wear on drivetrain parts if your Jeep has an agressive lift installed.

Why does my truck clunk when I accelerate?

The better news is that you likely have a failed engine mount. When the rubber in these parts wears out, the engine can move more than it was designed to, and this usually results in a thunking noise under hard acceleration. Much like a failed shock, when one goes bad the others aren’t far behind, so replace them all.

What does it sound like when your driveshaft is bad?

Common signs include intense car vibrations and abnormal noises, like clunking, rattling, and scraping, coming from under the vehicle.

How do you diagnose a bad U-joint?

Signs of a Bad U-Joint

  1. Clunking or Clanging. Your vehicle’s U-joint may eventually wear at connecting points to the drive-shaft.
  2. Vibrations. If your driveshaft is out of balance, it’s often because of a defective universal joint.
  3. Grinding or Chirping.
  4. Loud Banging.

What causes a drive shaft to go out of balance?

If driveshaft is suspected of being out of balance, check for missing balance weights, broken welds and any build up of dirt or paint that could cause the driveshaft balance to be affected. Inspect U-Joint and clamps for wear or looseness, replace if required. If the driveshaft is bent, it will have to be replaced.
