Front Drive Shaft
Did a bit of searching this morning and did not really find what I was looking for. So...
I have been having DW issues on my 04' Rubicon. I was under it yesterday checking the drive shafts and front U-joints for play.
The front drive shaft has a bit of lateral play (not rotational) in it about 1mm side to side. The movement is coming from the splines where one half slides into the other. I am fairly certain this is not ok.
So here comes my question.
Is there any reason to upgrade the front drive shaft? If so, what should I go with? I assume Tom Woods as he seems to be recommended quite a bit around here. But what should I ask for? Just tell him what I have and he will tell me what I need?
Currently my 04 Rubicon is stock save the tires. 265/75/16 BFG MT KM2 ~32"
I plan on, mid next year... hopefully, putting a Currie 2.5" lift on it. The $2k kit.
Eventually: Tummy tuck, small body lift (for tummy tuck), highline fenders of some kind, 35" tires.
Oh yeah, I love going off road! Nothing makes me happier than to Need to lock in the Diffs.
