Hi There,

I have a JB SYE on My 99 TJ with a LA kit. 5.5"

Recently I went offroading for the first time with the new suspension. I have had the SYE on for about 6 months. Now it seems to be leaking a lot from the output shaft.... I just redid the seals for the bell housing and the covers. It still leaked a little, but it seemed to start much worse after offroading.

Any advice?

TIA

Jason

It's entirely possible that your output shaft it a little bit out of true and is quickly wearing the seal. Did you run a lift w/o an SYE for a while?

my sye kit seemed sensitive to proper sealing of the o/p seal. i just had to make sure i had a good amount of sealant around the seal before i installed it. i used locktite gasket sealant. seemed to work so far...
