hey guys new to the forum. i just picked up a 95 jeep yj. i am looking at swapping in another dana 30 that has 4.88's in them already but the front is an open carrier. i purchased a aussie locker for the front but i am not sure what to do with the c clipe if it gets reused? tosed out? i know about the tj shaft but i would rather not go that route now and just use what i have.
I just put mine in last weekend, and mine didn't have c-clips. Didn't even have channels for them. But even if your axle does have them, I don't see how you can reuse them. There's no way to get to the end of the shaft after the locker is in there.
And if there is a c-clip, it'll only be one, on the passenger side. They say they just put it on there to jeep the inner shaft in place during assembly. So once the outer shaft is in, you don't need the clip anyway.
your 95 requires c clips to hold the axles in. early yj's didn't.
I think its the other way around. Early jeeps had them, but after a year or two, they realized they didn't need them, so they ditched the c-clips. They were gone by 92, because mine doesn't have them. And my buddy's 95 doesn't either.
mine only has one on the right side holding the stub shaft in there. i emailed aussie and he said to ditch the one c clip holding the shaft in. i would love to do the tj shaft but i do not have one right now or access to one
