Customer Question

I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport. It has been lifted with a Fabtech 4 1/2" suspension lift.
I had had it for 12 years. I did not install a slip yoke eliminator when I lifted it 10 years ago.
A so called "Off Road" shop installed a straight, longer drive shaft in it about a month ago. Within 2 weeks the pinion cut into the differential and twisted off the right rear axle shaft. Can a straight drive shaft be installed like this? Or did this shaft destroy my pumpkin?

  • Sorry no one has helped yet.
  • Yes, you have been charged already.
  • Yes, I am aware of the time you asked your question and time I am responding.
  • I will be online a couple more hours after this post.
  • This is not an answer to your question, just an inquiry if your still needing/wanting help. Because I believe I can help.
  • If the driveshaft is not able to compress when the suspension collapses, something has to be pushed either the transfer case or axle pinion. If the slip yoke issue is not addressed, this will happen again.

  • I am following up with you to see if you got everything you needed from my answer.
  • I have not heard back from you, so I assume you were not pleased. We're you pleased with my help?
  • If you were not pleased with my help, please let me know by replying so I can help more.

Thanks Chris
