Rear CV Driveshaft Alternatives ???
 
Hallo.

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.

Thanks!

i have a shortened xj front shaft for my rear. it was ~50 to shorten it, iirc.

does it fit to my TC and D44 pinion yoke?
are there different u-joints used in the different XJ models?

No Nicolas, they both use 1310 ujoints at the axle yoke.

im getting a xj drivshaft, it should bolt right in, after you wack 9" out

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.

How strong is a XJ front driveshaft compared to a TJ rear driveshaft?

timritchieblue 10-14-2008 02:08 PM

from what ive read, the 1310 u joint will break first
