    Is an SYE and DC driveshaft install worth it?

    From what I have read on the forum here, the 2.5” lift can cause vibes and varies from TJ to TJ. The problem I am currently having is a shudder/vibration that lasts only a second from a hard acceleration. Smooth acceleration appears to be fine. That being said, I am 90% sure that my issue will...

    Chasing a vibration for 1 year

    I've owned my 2001 Jeep TJ for almost a year now. It's a 6 Cylinder with 170k miles and 3-Speed Automatic Transmission. When the Jeep is at a full stop and I put it in Drive or Reverse the shaking/vibration is so bad I can barely see out of the mirrors. When it's in park or neutral there is...

    Wobble and Vibration

    Hello all, I recently had my Jeep at the shop for a harsh vibration when coming to a stop and the steering wheel wobbles when at around 40-45. While it doesn’t happen every time I drive, the wobble has become death wobble where I lose all control and have to come to a stop for it to go away...

    97 Wrangler sounds like a wooden rollercoaster

    I've got a 97 Wrangler with a 4.0L in it, and haven't had to many issues, but the guy who owned it before me definitely ran it rough. Had a few pieces cracked and the frame certainly has been through a lot, but overall it's been a pretty reliable car. Until recently. I noticed after driving...

    Vibration from 55-60 MPH

He has an 05 Jeep TJ X with 4spd It's not really modded, but it has is a 1" body mount lift. He was experiencing steering wheel wobble from 40+ for a little over a month so...

    Vibration after 2" Rough Country lift install

    Hey y'all, I've read tons on this site about solutions, but I'm still not clear about it. My 2000 4.0L Sahara automatic drove flawlessly. I had a local shop install RC longer springs and new shocks for a 2" lift. They also mounted 32" X 11.5" Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT tires on 15x8 rims...

    Vibration while accelerating

    I have a 97 TJ 4.0 with a manual trans I was driving and went around a corner then put it into second gear to accelerate and had my rear driveshaft pop from the furthest rear u-joint. I later replaced the u-joint and got everything back together only to find that I now have a shake when...

    Noise, shaking, and mild vibrations at speeds above 40 mph

    Hi, I recently purchased a Jeep Wrangler TJ 6cyl 1998 with 160k miles on it. Some percentage of miles were from being towed with RV by the previous owner. I'm new to Jeep TJ and while purchasing I did not take it too fast to be able to realize the issues related to noise, shaking and vibrations...

    Something loose in catalytic converter?

    2005 Jeep 4.0L 65k miles. I attached a video of it. I can’t tell if it’s just vibrations or if it’s something else. Really only started happening after a 1 hour drive to the beach. When I’m driving I feel like I also hear it but that could just be me overthinking.

    Steering Geometry

    So been reading a lot of different threads lately (big thanks to everyone who contributes regularly). I've been having issues with front end vibrations. Not the DW, but a violent up and down shake between 34-45 MPH - only on acceleration. Let off and it rolls smooth. Braking has no issues. But...

    Mystery vibration

    Hey everyone, I’ve got an incredibly hard to find rubbing/grinding noise coming from my ‘02 TJ. My Jeep has been taken to 4 Jeep/off-road specialist who can’t pinpoint where it’s coming from even after looking at it for hours. They initially said it was the Transfer Case which I had rebuilt but...

    Another Driveline Vibration (research showed this should work)

    So, I read most of the threads about driveline angles... I SHOULD be vibe free. I have had 3 other jeeps with similar lifts I put together without vibes. So... I have an 05 TJ with the NSG 6 speed OME HD lift Extended LCAs (Synergy) Adjustable UCAs (Synergy) 1” MML/BL Rear Axle pointed up 9...

    More vibrations

    I'm hearing vibes at around 45-55 mph (actually higher, I found out today that I'm indicating about 12% off, but ignore that, I'll get that fixed), but the vibes only happen in 4th gear. (4 speed auto). I've been getting around this by switching the O/D off until I'm at 60, but obviously...

    Vibration at 50 mph

    I am new here and to my Rubicon. 06 no lift, tires have been balanced twice, no slop in u joints or anywhere else I can find. Vibration starts at 50 and gets worse the faster I go. I have read through a mind numbing number of posts about this, but all of them pertain to lifted TJs. Mine is stock...

    Vibrations at 35 mph after SYE install

    So I recently installed a SYE on my jeep to help remedy some terrible drive line vibrations caused from my 2.5" lift kit. After install the vibrations were gone except for when ever I am going roughly 35 MPH there is a vibration that comes on pretty strong, but once I go over 35, like around 40...

    Deceleration Vibration

    My TJ has done this since I have had it. At first I thought it was the brakes but after replacing the rotors and pads in the front and the rear drums and shoes there was no change at all. Jeep rides smooth when accelerating at any speed but when coasting or not pressing on the gas pedal I get...

    Tire questions

    Hi Guys, I have been reading the forums on wheel vibrations at 50 mph and the main cause being tyre balance. I've tried balancing the tyres with a local french garage and can't seem to cure the problem. The french guys insist that the tyres are "Merde" english translation... not so good. So I...
