Had an alignment shop put it on the rack and give me a baseline to work with after I lifted it. $20 bucks.
I pulled the ds and vibes went a way. I haven't confirmed it's the ds yet, been too busy. So I'm in no way bashing reel, just throwing out what the driveline shop told me, and the amount of weight on it now vs when I took it to them. Even they said to run it to confirm before calling reel.
If the ds goes on and the vibe I got at 60+ is gone then I know the culprit. I took the 35's out of the picture, I'm running stock sra tires so its not the rubber causing the vibes. Might end up being something in the axle, who knows.
Reel is 50 miles away, the shop I took it to is 5. I wanted a second opinion on the ds.
I need to spend some time under the jeep to get things sorted as everyone issues are always a little different with so many variables.
I just wanted to jump in and share my 1310 rub since I was surprised as I read and was told that I won't have any issues.

Finally got around to working on this tonight. The axle clearance problem was minimal, removed the heat shield and all is well in droop land. Its close, but doesn't rub, about 1/8+ from the pipe.
The DS feels much better now that it was re-balanced.
So ya, skip the y-pipe.
What about both the y-pipe and the shaft?
I was just wondering if it would give you more room, if it's even necessary.
I see, thanks for the info. I sure do appreciate it.
What's your caster angle? I have not measured my caster yet but I am willing to be it is in the negative now. I just installed a 1350 front DS and I am within 1 deg of 0 on the pinion and DS angle but now at highway speeds it gets a little hairy as she gets pretty flighty when I hit some grooves in the pavement. I know this can be fixed by clocking the inner "C"s or buying an aftermarket axle assembly. How did you deal with it or did you? Thanks for any input you might have.
