I replaced the front u joints on my 94 YJ dana 30 last week. There are these white plastic type axle seals/dust seal/"oil slinger" on the axle shaft between ujoint and the axle housing. The ones that were on there were rotted, brittle, and broke. I can't seem to find correct replacements for these things...They were cut to fit over the shaft splines and sit up against the housing tube. I ordered some from the fiche on quadratec that are a 2 piece plastic ring with no spline teeth, but they don't fit over the axle! I've called every auto parts store and the local jeep dealer and nobody seems to know what I need...
So anyone know how to get these things? Or do I even need them? maybe I should just fabricate a hilljack cover of some kind??
Yeah those greaseable seals will not work on a stock YJ. I was ordering them when Quadratech gave me the heads up. The passenger side is thinker than the driver side, and because it is a two piece it wiggles more than standards axle shafts. No one makes them because even if you got one the right size it wouldn't last long at all due to the extra play. At least that is what Quadratec said to me. Because of that I bought a solid axle for the passenger side and put that in. They are good to have if you go in mud or deep water. The crap that winds up in your axle tubes from doing that destroys the seals and then oil starts leaking out. That is the whole reason I was pulling mine apart in the first place.
As far as the plastic stock ones, I have no idea where you would find them. You def should have something to close the tube ends though.
