 Post subject: sye shaft
 Post Posted: Wed Nov 19, 2008 10:42 pm 
So, a front shaft from an XJ can be shortened to work in a YJ with sye, correct? My question is, will one from a grand cherokee work too? I dont know what one i have, but im sure i think its from one of them. Anyone know what the measurements are so i can check it out. Sye is prolly gonna be next since i already have the 4in lift and now am getting 3/4in boomerang shackles

yeah it'll work, as long as the axle end doesnt have a cv joint you should be good.

Do they balance the shaft since they have changed the mass?

If it has a regular U-joint on one side it should be a cherokee driveshaft. Grand Cherokee shafts have a CV joint on the axle end that looks like this...

Other than that, it really doesn't matter what it comes out of so long as it has the joint sizes you are looking for, diameter which will not interfere with anything, and able to be sized to your application.
