Dana 35 axles

I was wondering if the no c-clip axles for a dana 35 will fit a 2004 TJ? I guess what im trying to ask is if the axles in my 04 use c-clips or not. i am supposed to pick up some tomorrow but they are not c-clip axles. I need to know if they will work asap.

Nope...

The ’87-’89 Wranglers and ’84-’89 Cherokees have non-C-clip axles. These are semifloating axles, so if a shaft should break the wheel will remain on the vehicle, at least for a short time until the axle bearing fries. The ’90-and-later Dana 35s have C-clips that retain the axles in the housing. If a C-clip shaft snaps, the axle, wheel, and brake drum will liberate themselves from the housing if you try to drive on it. Upgrading a C-clip axle with a C-clip eliminator kit doesn’t provide a strength gain, but it will usually cause oil leaks around the bearing and flange area...so save your money. from jp magazine http://www.jpmagazine.com/techarticl...lding_dana_35/
