    And so did I, whatever your real name is. Being that you're the expert here, what is the correct way to run a rear drive shaft and why?

    I thought that JKO shit was behind us. I don't get involved anymore.
    Sorry, I guess I missed the part where it was behind us. I mean, I see now that you had said something about it and asked to be banned from here but beyond that, I had totally forgotten who you were.

    Will it be for good this time?

    FWIW, you can blame all this on jkrossi. I had totally forgotten about both of you but he got me digging through some of the old hater threads.

    Here is my experience and heed my words! If you want pain and sorrow follow my experience. If you want a more pleasurable experience follow what Eddie has said over and over again and again in many a thread and write up. I have slightly different angles and lengths of drive shafts because of the V8 conversion. Tom Woods front and rear also went from 5.13's to 4.10's but probably should have only gone back to 4.88's. Same issues and after getting rear happy, just a small vibe to fix from rear, went to front. The front was WAY out of balance but this just narrowed the RPM spectrum of the vibe. Started at 4.5 degrees and worked my way down one turn on lower arms at a time to just above zero on caster. Now what? Bump steer is terrible! So I turned the C's, gusseted the C's and trussed the axle. Now if I would have listened and saved for the Pro Rock I wouldn't have a 30, wouldn't have wasted all the time modifying it and wasted money on parts I can barely recoup cents on the dollar for! You know the saying real world higher education is expensive and yes it is! Point being every change you make causes 2 more problems which lead to 4 to 8 on and on so you need to stop the cycle before this happens. Knowing what I know now I would have gone the different axle route and probably a different aftermarket DS. Its great you guys are asking questions its the listening I have found personally, myself, that can be lacking. Food for thought I guess! Good Luck!

    P.S. Some may be wondering if all this worked out? Yes it did but two wrongs don't make a right!

    Sucks that you had to find out the hard way but at least now, you have first hand experience.

    Well Eddie it is kind of like sticking your toes or a hand into a spinning lawn mower blade. You only do it once! But wait the government fixed, mandated, that by making lawn mowers total pieces of crap so you can't do this any more! Bad example!!!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
