Advance Adapters SYE & Tom Woods Rear Drive Shaft Installation
I have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler (TJ Model) with a 3" Teraflex suspension lift. The lift model number is S3T, and came with front and rear lower adjustable control arms, springs, front disconnects, etc. A typical SYE installation requires that the rear pinion (differential) angle match the output angle of the transfer case, because a double cardan driveshaft is used with the kit. Therefore, the rear differential should point upwards directly towards the output of the transfer case. Sometimes, adjustments to the rear pinion angle are needed to achieve this, and upper rear adjustable control arms in addition to rear lower adjustable control arms are recommended for this adjustment. I was lucky, and did not need to adjust the rear pinion angle after raising the transfer case back to its original position without lowering spacers.
Materials & Tools that I bought in preparation for the install:
Materials and Tools that I already have:
Hydraulic Floor Jack
