    Im gonna be doing a SYE on my 208 (thanks Andy /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) and while I have it apart, might as well do a rebuild. Any advise or write-ups?

    Also, does this look like everything I will need? Is it a good price?

    BTW, Ive never had anyproblems with this t-case, just doing this as a preventative maintinance.

    Thanks!

    What route are you taking to convert it to SYE? You're using a Dodge 208 half case on it right? That looks like everything you will need. My buddy at the local 4x4 shop does this kind of conversion quite a bit and I've been to watch him. I'd say it's very complete and a good price if you're doing it yourself. It's not hard at all.

    You may want to have a local source for a few other wear items, like thrust washers, chain etc. just in case. A cartridge of RTV that fits in a caulking gun really saves some time on the case halves and other stuff. HTH...

    Since you're getting a SYE, no need to replace the output shaft bushing /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. BTW on that, where's it coming from, I would be interested in reading some more on that for my pickup.

    Does autozone or Napa carry stuff like the chain and such?

    As far as the SYE, its coming from Andy (K10ANDYKHAMINC). He has been super helpful and has answered all my questions. If you do a search for SYE and related words, youll find alot of info where he has talked about this many times. Do a little reading and then send him a PM, thats what I did. I believe he has all the parts availible to sell so you can convert yours to fixed yoke.

    I should have mine done in a couple of weeks. Ill try to remember to take lots of pics.

    this might be a dumb question, but what does SYE stand for?
