    Just installed the SYE and new 1 Ton CV Driveshaft. What a difference. No more vibration and the comfort of knowing I'm not going to have to revisit that part of the blaze.

    I would like to thank Jess @ Highangle for all of his help. He called me and talked on his dime to make sure everything was going good. You don't have that kind of service from these big companies.

    Yea it was a little pricey but IMHO it was well worth it!!

    I agree with you, the SYE and 1 ton CV's were the best thing i have done yet. And dealing with Jess made it even better.

    Well worth the money!

    What was the price both of you paid? Mainly for the driveshaft is what I am concerned with.

    Thanks

    It was $419 for the shaft. Total bill around 1K (ouch) But well worth it. So far anyway. Call Jess.

    Jesse quoted me $419 per shaft like 90K5 said & $325 for the SYE & $99 for the flange to mount the 1350 CV shaft to the SYE. If you have the NP241 like me, you also need to send the front output yoke to him to be machined for the new front shaft. Total bill in Canadian $ is $1956!! How's that for OUCH!![​IMG][​IMG]

    Actually, it's approx. $1.55 Canadian per U.S. dollar. The total in US$ is $419 + $419 + $99 + $325 = $1262 US * 1.55 = $1956 Can

    Dont forget you can still get the 1310 CV shaft from Jesse to go with the SYE. ITs abit cheaper, by like close to a 100 dollars.
