What u joints do I use in my 04 rubicon auto tranny rear driveshaft. There not replacement ones for stock shaft so what do I get. Prefer Spicer numbers I for the life of me can't find them

Should be Spicer 5-795x for the rear driveshaft up to 2004, they changed in 2005.

Haha. Thank you sir your a life saver.


Found that vibration I chased for a week. Would have never notice if I didn't shack the driveshaft from the double ball joint part as only one particular angle and sure enough it's real sloppy! Going to do all new spiders on ever joint to be safe hope she's good from their. Pinion is .3 low now can't be any more accurate. Small digital angle finder is the best investment ever. I was 2* high before. So deff ate u joints

Told for my shaft the rear driveshaft transfer case side u joints are the same size for all normal TJ rear shaft 97-06 non rubi. The rear most u joint on rear shaft is a front u joint for stock rubicon driveshaft at the transfercase side.

Ok, whatever, but I don't believe a 1310 size 5-153x (greasable) is going to work. A standard TJ takes a standard 1310 size u-joint and a 5-153x is a 1310 but you said you have a Rubicon .

Did you notice in my Google link that 5-795x link was indeed a u-joint and not a shaft as you said you were finding? Something isn't right somewhere..

And lastly, one of the many links in that Google link I provided confirms it is a Rubicon u-joint... http://compare.ebay.com/like/1605997...Types&var=sbar

Agree not at all arguing with ya haha. Please don't think I am. I see its a u joint an yes when I say I have a rubicon I do but does Tom woods use that u joint in their CV drive shaft? I am just going to pull this thing out an disassemble and get this all figured out

Tom typically uses 1310 size u-joints like the greasable 5-153x. Your OE driveshaft should use the ujoint I recommended.

Your description in post #1 confused me. I read and re-read it several times and kept coming to the conclusion you couldn't find u-joints for the stock Rubicon driveshaft and you were just trying to buy the u-joints from Tom.

If it had been more clear that you actually had a Tom Wood CV driveshaft, I would have recommended Spicer 5-1310x u-joints which is the sealed, stronger, and more durable replacement. I would not go for the weaker greasable 5-153x.
