    Pretty easy kit, took forever to clean everything though. I think if I wasnt screwing around so much I could have easily had everything done in 3 hours. But it ended up taking my about 5 or so cause I had to make sure everything was clean, and tight and installed right. Now I just need to order my driveshaft after I get the new rear suspension done.

    It does a number of things. Gets rid of the slip yoke output which causes vibration and if you ever brake a u-joint you will loose all your fluid with the shaft out. The SYE also will make you rear driveshaft longer which is better for angles.

    looks bling. JB conversions? Any reason you decided not to go with the ultra short one? Just didn't seem worth the extra cost? I know what you mean about taking longer to clean crap and such. I always do that, it often takes me forever to do a simple thing cause of it.

    What are you doing for your rear suspension?

    Its 1310 yoke, but will be getting replace with a flange from High angle driveline.

    I wanted to go with a super short SYE but its only available for the drivers drop 241 which kind of sucks. My 89 is a mechanical speedo, and I have all the crap to put it back to mechanical speedo, but im just too lazy to do it.

    long story, but I broke on the first one when i dropped my front driveline on the street, then i got one from a junkyard, and put that in, but 4 lo didnt work, then i bought another one and thats the one thats in there now. So I have a spare t-case sitting in my garage.
