axle conversion question
OK so i got a 92 wrangler and the vacuum motor thing on the front axle don't work any more and the outer shaft bearing dont want to move properly... so what i was wondering if rather then replacing all that and fooling around with vacuum lines and stuff if it would be a good idea to put a solid axle in there rather then the disconnecting axle?

check out this thread at the top.

Should get you started and yes that would work well for you.

As the above links says, you have lots of options... you can pin the shift fork, or install a 1pc shaft from a XJ or TJ. only down side is that you need new seal, and might need to get your front driveshaft balanced. OR swap in a HP dana 30 from a late model XJ... depends on how much work you want to take on.
