    Brutal Driveline Vibrations

    DC driveshafts can work at higher angles. I switched to DC because the stock type DS was binding at droop. I had no vibration, but I had spacers on the t-case skid, aka shovel. I was able to get rid of the spacers and I plan on raising the t-case more and have a 2" drop Barnes skid for it...

    Strange noise from drivetrain

    Update, I tried rocking the Jeep back and forth and checking for slop in all the u joints before I pulled the front driveshaft. I could not feel any problems. I played around with pinion angle in the rear and that helped some too, but there was still some vibration. I finally got around to...

    Replacing U-Joints: Do You Prefer a Hammer or a Press?

    I used a hammer and a 7"x7"x24" block of wood with a hole bored in it to push the cap out for 30 years. I have a press now and have not had any problems. I have had some stubborn ones. I just double and triple checked that it is supported and not pushing on an ear. I've had 2 that scared the...

    Brutal Driveline Vibrations

    I would measure the rear pinion angle first. It looks off and checking it is much easier than removing the driveshaft.

    Brutal Driveline Vibrations

    I believe all Wranglers have DC driveshafts. A MML is not needed IMO unless you are doing a tummy tuck. You could do it and it would slightly reduce the working angle of the new rear driveshaft.

    Brutal Driveline Vibrations

    The rear pinion appears to be too high. The output shaft should be parallel with the pinion.

    What are these connectors?

    Any yellow connector is airbag related. That is an industry standard.

    Are these body mounts safe to drive with?

    I'm thinking the frame isn't any better.

    Can I get opinions on this 04 Rubicon?

    It's definitely nice. I would not pay that much for something I was planning to wheel. If it has been re-geared then maybe.

    Steering / Suspension Question

    I would get the steering figured out and then see if the track bar is a problem.

    To go synthetic or not?

    I can't find any connection to Ferrari cars and Ferrari tractors. Lamborghini was a tractor company before being a car company.. Enzo insulted Mr. Lamborghini so Lamborghini cars were born

    Steering / Suspension Question

    What is wrong with the track bar bracket? Why does it have to go? With a lifted jeep the dropped pitman arm would help return the steering geometry closer to stock. I would think that is a good thing. The second picture looks like the steering box bolts are at an angle in the picture...

    To go synthetic or not?

    GM has been using synthetic for more than 10 years. It does help fuel economy by lowering friction.
