Jeep Parts???


Recommended Posts

I was at the local pick&pull yesterday to get something for my daughter's Olds and took a walk back to the truck area. They had a TJ, 3 - ZJ's and about 6 XJ's. Are the ZJ's front axle the same as a MJ? It looked like the ZJ and a couple XJ's had a larger front axle? Also is the front drive shaft the same on autos and manuals?? Everything except the TJ was auto :cry:

TJ, YJ, MJ, XJ, ZJ....all the same D30 axle. YJ D30 is leaf spring, but all the others are coiled. ZJ D30 may be low pinion, and may have CV joints instead of u-joints. Late model ('01-'02) XJ D30 is low pinion also.

 

Front driveshaft lengths do vary by transmission/engine combo :cry: I do know that the AX5/2.5 combo has the shortest DS, but it's possible that a 4.0/AW4 and 4.0L/AX15 are the same size (or close enough to be interchangeable). Maybe some 4.0 guys here can speak to that.

Thanks,

 

I thought I could get a cheep front drive shaft, but I have a 2.5 w/ AX-4 and the 3 2.5's they had were autos :cry: They did have have the front axles priced at $89 each, but the other local yard has one for $20 less and they will pull it :D
