That would make sense. I have a body lift and a TC drop, so that explains a lot....Also can't drink my McDonalds sweet iced tea when I am in 2nd or 4th gear because of the shifter position

Ditto. I replaced my factory just a couple of months after buying the Jeep in November 2012, with an Autozone TPS. No issues out of it at all 3+ year now.

All it needed was a few love taps from the hammer and it slid in. Hopefully that didn't gum anything up.

I find it hard to believe that both of my axle would have been bent at the exact same...

Sorry if I wasn't clear but I never put the old shaft into the new axle. The old shaft was toast from the accident.

What I did was take the good shaft from the new axle (insurance bought an...

If it is turning the drive shaft when I spin the axle shaft doesn't that mean the splines are already aligned? Or do they need to line up with another section further into the diff?

That's what I was thinking but I'm not sure what to do instead? Maybe lube the bearings wheel up real good and try to hammer it in? Kinda worried about gumming up the bearings if I do that.

Rear Axle Shaft Installation snag

I removed the rear driver's side axle shaft from the new Dana 44 to see if my old axle was salvageable (spoiler alert: it wasnt!) after I got into my accident. Getting it back in is giving me some...

So I decided just to fix what I've got and not upgrade. Those extra funds can be put to better use elsewhere.

Installing new rear Dana 44 Questions
