    I put an echobit rear flip and soem add-a-leafs on my blazer a while back and since i am getting ready to treck 5.5 hours into up state Ny for college i thought it might be a good idea to try and remedy the vibration comming fronm the transfer case side fo the rear drive shaft. what could i do to fix it? i cant afford to put a CV joint up there just yet so something quick easy and inexpensive is the ticket. it dosent seam like the problem is to crazy so something small will likley fix it, i just dont know what.

    Is the u joint binding? If it is, you could grind away the small part of the yoke that is. Other than that, I don't know what you could do other than have it balanced/get a CV shaft.

    I think the u joint is binding up. the shafts were just cut and balanced so i dont think that the drive shafts are the problem, just the u-joints.

    You could drop the T-case with some spacers to lower the angle. It's not ideal, but it works.

    I had a similar problem I have been doing battle with for a good couple months. Rear CV shaft did not help either. What did help was lowering the tcase. It took about 15 minutes of time and almost no skill on my part.

    Problem has been solved! Give a try and see if it helps.

    BTW - I flipped around the stock spacers to drop it.
