shocks ujoints spider gears

With the day off, took care of the rough ride and noise all together. Funny how 5 bad ujoints, worn out spider gears on the front and bad races on the diff bearing caused all of the noise. Add the new shocks and its a different world. Now looking for new spider gears for the rear.
2005 tj with 115000 miles Blue Sport. Best money spent so far other than the bikini top.

Not nad for what I did, didnt replace the ring gear because it was fine. Didnt replace the bearings on the diff because my dad wont give me my press back. Also left the ball joints for another day. Getting the hub off was hardest. Unscrew the hub bolts 1/2 inch and hit them while the socket is on the bolt.

The front driveshaft rebuild is not that bad. The centering ball on the CV joint was bad on mine.

It took me a little over an hour once I had the driveshaft out.
