nicolas-eric How strong is a XJ front driveshaft compared to a TJ rear driveshaft?
10-12-2008 06:35 PM
nicolas-eric I just bought a XJ front driveshaft thats already shortened. IMO it could fit. If not ill shorten it a bit more.
It comes form a friends nissan pathfinder with a front solid axle and longarms.

Rear CV Driveshaft Alternatives ???


Im going to install a SYE in the next weeks.
Can I install another rear CV driveshaft than a new one?

Does a TJs front CV driveshaft fit when i shorten it?
Or does a XJ front CV driveshaft fit?
Or something else?

I really want to save some money. A new driveshaft + shipping + toll/VAT would cost +500$ for me. A used XJ front driveshaft would cost only 50-100$ +50-100$ for shortening and balancing.
