I installed a 2.5" lift on my 95 yj. Picked up a bad vibration, lowered the transfer case plate, no help. I am buying a slip yoke eliminator kit and need to know what cv axle to buy with it. All the axles i found are for 4-6" lifts. I need help figuring out what measurements are needed to purchase the right equipment. Please help. STUCK.

Randy P...Sounds like you need the correct driveshaft length for the new CV rear driveline.  Shops that build a CV-driveshaft can furnish instructions on how they want you to measure from the yoke at the new SYE to the rear axle's pinion yoke.  Since some shops prefer one method of measurement over another, your best bet is to consult with the shop that is furnishing/building the new rear CV driveline.  They will want to clarify this, as everyone needs the right measurement to assure getting this shaft length right the first time!

Take the yoke-to-yoke measurements with the Jeep on flat ground at normal "curb" body/chassis height.  The shaft lengthens and shortens over its arc of axle travel.  The static ride height of the vehicle, with both axles loaded normally, is the length measurement that shops want.  Do not have the axles hanging (on a chassis hoist or frame stands) when taking this measurement.
