  • SYE install

    Many of you are aware of my mechanical ineptitude. No laughing.

    I won a CV driveshaft on a different forum. I'm ordering the driveshaft and an AA SYE( I got a freakin' incredible deal on the sye) this week. Now I have to install it. I'm gonna try to do this one with minimal help. So's I need help.

    I actually plan on following the directions, but I was wondering if anyone on here had any advice? Tips? I also heard now is a good time to replace that pesky speedo gear thats 15% low/off, is that true? Any info would be awesome. Thanks.

      I would but he never returns phone calls. J/K Naw, I was thinking about askin' him, but I don't have the kit, yet, so I was gonna wait on the off chance I'll see him in person before I put it in.

        Yeah you might as well do the speedo while you are doing the SYE, you have to remove it anyhow so it would be a good time to install the correct one. It's a cheap part think i got mine for under $20.

        The instructions from AA are good, just read through them and make sure you have everything they recommend. I got a highlighter and marked all tools, lubricants....etc. that were required through the job then checked to make sure i had everything before i started.

        As far as tips, these are the only areas that required special attention when i did my SYE:

        output shaft disassembly- you'll need heavy duty snap-ring pliers to remove the mode hub retaining ring. Buy, or borrow a pair if you don't have a pair doing this step without them will make you cry. (this i know).

        If you have a YJ you will also need to remove the caged needle bearing on the output shaft. Most can get them off with a big socket and hammer i wasn't so lucky i actually had to bring mine into work and use a bearing press to get them off. If you have a TJ (1997+) disregard this step it only applies to YJ's. Looks like you have an XJ i have no idea what your set-up is like.

        Takes a bit of time to do. I'd recommend pulling out the whole TC. I've read that this job can be done with it installed though. I pulled mine because i wanted to give my TC a good once over and cleaning while i had it apart.

        Congrats on the free driveshaft you won!
