AC0QR Original Replacement Parts D44TJ-BK - Axle Shaft Bearing & Seal Kit for 97-02 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with Dana 44 Rear Axle - Quadratec

Does anyone know if this is a decent quality bearing kit?

JeepAddOns-Chris - Motive Gear & Ten Factory Axle

Ten Factory hands down and comes in complete kit form. There are some other good ones out there that are pretty good like Nitro, but those you would have to cut to length. For as little as these are, it's a no brainer for upgrading the rear D44.

Your cheaper option is going to be a Yukon 1541 shaft, which I've watched snap like twigs in situations that even a stock shaft would hold up.

D44 Axle Shaft Reccomendation

I've got a leaking rear (D44) driver side axle seal. I want to minimize downtime so thinking of ordering an axle shaft and a bearing/seal/retainer plate kit, pressing it together, and then swapping axleshafts one evening.

Question is, who makes a good axleshaft? Good bearing/seal kit? It's hard to find good reliable parts in the sea of Chinese knockoffs...

I run 31s and may move to 33s in the future, so I think stock strength is plenty.
