pull wheel off. pull rotor off. remove unit bearing. pull axle shaft. replace ujoiint like a regular one. reassemble
the only part that tends to be a bitch (aside from the ujoint itslef) is pulling the unit bearing. i usually loosen the bolts, then (with the front end on jack stands) place a deep socket between the loosened bolt and a spot on the axle. then bump the steering wheel (with the engine running). basically, use the power steering pump as your press.
be careful when putting the shaft back in to not damage the axle seal.

|08-12-2009 01:28 PM|
|morphious||well i have an older yj so i wasnt sure if they changed the joints|
|08-12-2009 01:24 PM|

|08-12-2009 09:49 AM|
|morphious||ahh i was wondering that yeah in that case yeah u joint but that souldent case it to make noise when not in fourwheel drive check ur drive shaft u joints make sure that's not clunking around|
|08-12-2009 09:44 AM|
theres no cv joint on a yj.
check the axleshaft ujoints.
|08-12-2009 09:17 AM|
|morphious||not sure if they have them but could it be a ujoint going bad|
|08-12-2009 12:52 AM|
Have you looked at the CV?
Maybe the hub
|08-12-2009 12:24 AM|
|shermz||the mounts looked ok but i'll check tomorrow. the noise happens even if i'm going just 5-10mph and never stops|
|08-12-2009 12:01 AM|
|tlrrob1000||Check the shock mounts.|

knocking sound from front end, cv joint?
i'm a new jeep owner and new to the forum. i just bought a 94 yj that was sitting for a year. now that i'm driving it, i hear a knocking sound when i'm driving. sounds like its coming from somewhere near the drivers side front tire. my dad was thinking it was the cv joint for the front axle. also can i adjust the clutch, because sometimes she won't start even though clutch is pushed in.
