  1. Upon review of the fsm I found a test on how to check the yoke angles to see if I need some wedge shims.The vehicle needs a full tank of gas and nothing in the trunk space and on level ground. Then measure the angle from the yoke on the differential side, then the shaft side. The angles should be within 1.5 degrees of each other. If my angles are correct then my height is where it should be and the load change on the u joints.Then that means I need to look into diagnosing bad u joints. If the angles are out side of spec then I need some angle shims to angle the axle up or down a specified degr
  2. With it sitting in the dive way (its slanted) the hard top looks almost level. Sitting in it also looks like its off. So I think I got a hold of the wrong springs
  3. Its supposed to be stock height. I'll have to give the parts people a call on why I ended up with a lift kit instead. That does make alot more sense why suddenly the drive shaft length has changed
  4. I Measured the lengths I got 23" from the front eyelet to the top of the axle, and 22" from the top of the axle to rear eyelet. Looking at the page I bought the springs they are 45" long in total length. But the eyelets defiantly are different sizes. One is noticeably bigger and is currently sitting in the front, and a smaller one in the back on the shackle. Maybe theres a shim that got left out? Heres the eyelets
  5. I never would've thought that the springs could be backwards. Now the shackles could do it too since they look nothing like the original ones. they had 2 different bolt holes one higher and lower. How do I figure out which oerientation the springs fo on? Suspension isn't really my cup of tea lol
  6. I checked the angle. The shaft pulled out of the rear yoke. My phones having trouble in the cold so I cant take a picture. Could the rear shackles be the cause?
  7. Hello all. I have a 1990 jeep wrangler with a 2.5l 4cyl engine. The engine is young, only 4 or 5 thousand miles on it. However the rest of the drive train has 264,000 miles on it. Anyway the saga continues after adding new rear leaf springs. After the replacement on the way home this noise happens only when I let off the throttle. I think the ride hight is higher than what the stock was. But that should still not cause this noise Right? My question is what the stock springs should be just to verify I have the right springs and and what the awful sounds coming from the transfer case. Transfer c
