I'm getting ready to install a SYE (later this summer). So I'm in the market for a drive shaft. I'm trying to plan on what I need & cost.

I plan on adding...
long arm kit
springs about 3"-4" taller
pivoting shackles in rear (or the shackles that open up when axle drops)

I hope I can get a driveshaft for $250-$300 MAX
Maybe one for the front for around $400 MAX
Less would be real nice though!

I'm I dreaming???

I'm basically looking at spending another 3 grand on phase two! Ouch!

So saving a buck here & there would be nice. Also I will be selling old coils,control arms, & driveshafts to try & offset this bill.

Any help would be gracious!

Check out Tom Woods. I got my SYE and rear driveshaft from him for right around $500, shipped. I can't see it costing more than $200-250 more to get a DS made for the front as well.

Well it would be nice if I didn't need a new front drive shaft. But I'm thinking I'm going to end up with a total 7-8" lift. So just assuming I will need a new one for the front also.
If you have any further input that would be great.

Thanks Phantum, I have bookmarked Tom Wood now.

I'm looking at the Teraflex Revolving shackles, they claim 1.5" of lift. So I may swap out my 1" blocks for 2" to make the XJ level.
