It looks wicked as hell, i see in your sig that it's custom, and I just wanna say good going man. it looks really good

Got any further info? i.e. which axle?

Guessing it is not a d35. If you snapped the axle shaft, your affected tire would drift out and you wouldn't be able to drive it.

Your of course going to need to get a new rear shaft. Was this a stock shaft, or an after market one? If aftermarket like one that comes in an super 35 kit it might be under warranty.



IF not get a new shaft, dealer (most $$) 4wd.com rockauto.com etc.You may also want to consider upgrading to alloy shafts.

Have not done one of these in long time, but this may help:
Remove diff cover, drain gear oil, make sure no ring gear teeth are busted or look for other damage at this time.

Remove c-clip, looks like a c-clip attached to rest of the shaft still in the tube. Remove this from shaft. May need to get something to push the rest of the shaft though axle shaft, or use a magnet from outside of axle tube to pull the shaft out.

Slide new shaft in, put on c-clip replace diff cover fill with oil and that should be it.

oh ok, cool. It looks like it goes over the hood, is that right? if so, how do you open your hood? does the tubing like rotate toward the front or something so you can open the hood, or do you have to take that whole tubing section off?

What kind of locker do you have??? If it is a like most you will have to remove the pinion shaft from the center of the carrier then pull out the center drive hubs from the locker and then you should see the c-clip.If it is a lock right or similar you should be able to turn it and see the c- clip on the passager side.Hold on I will send a link to putting together the locker so you just reverse proceeder.

Here is the link to the locker I was talking about.If you have Truetrac you should be able to just pull the pinion shaft and get the c-clips out without doing anything to the locker.http://www.4lo.com/94jeep/lock-right-d35c/install.html

yes it goes over the hood. There is a hinge in front and a rod that locks it in place. You remove the rod and you swing it out. When you're done you close the hood. You push the bumper forward to get it over the hood and then you lock it in place with the rod.

you will definetly NOT have to remove the pinion to pull the shafts. you will have to pull the center pin on the carrier. not knowing what kind of locker you have, its hard to tell you how to do it. on my aussie, its a bitch to pull the c clip. pull the center pin, shove the axle in, remove the c clip is the basics. depending on where it broke, it could be a PITA to get the broken piece out. i have dana 35 shafts i'd let go for cheap. pm me if interested.

Yes and if you read the link I put up the pin in the center of the carrier is called a pinion shaft.Why I don't know but yeah I was not telling him to remover the pinion gear that mates the ring gear NO that does not have to come out but YES you have to remove the pinion shaft!!!!!!

Looks like removing the shaft is the only way. You cant remove the carrier because the broken shaft is holding it in.
