Hey guys, I need some ideas on a replacement axle shaft. I want a oem replacement, I cant afford to do them all right now so whats the point on doing one. It broke at the wheel so its the far outside drivers axle I don't need to replace the u joint just the outer axle shaft. Please give me links or part numbers to find a replacement

You should be able to find one cheap from someone pulling their stock shafts to upgrade.

He has a Rubicon & a Dana 44 axle up front, isn't your LJ's front axle still a Dana 30? If so, the shafts aren't interchangeable. :)

Whoops nevermind, I just noticed his broken piece is the outer stub shaft which is the same part for the Dana 30/Rubicon Dana 44.

This should do it, but count your splines anyway. There are a couple 27 spline shafts tagged as Rubicon parts that have me nervous. It should be 30 splines.

More Information for ALLOY USA 10133

Yea I have noticed that also, I'm out of comission till I get a replacement so I dont want to order the wrong one and end up waiting for 2 weeks to get the correct one. Thanks for the link

The outer stub shafts are 27 spline for both the D44 used in the Rubicon and standard D30 used on the standard TJ. Only the inner shafts are different with the Rubicon's inner shaft being 30 spline & the D30's inner shaft being 27 spline.

So for your front Dana 44, it uses the same outer stub shaft that the TJ's D30 does. :)

I didnt realize these are the fronts that he needs. I know I have the rears but not sure about the fronts.

I got it back from the welder, Looks good to me but what are me chances it will hold?

Btw I have a new one on the way 200 bones! sheesh...
I've not heard of a broken shaft being welded. I'm no expert but, this sounds interesting.

I'd carry the welded axle shaft as a spare to get home on but I sure wouldn't wheel with it. :eek:
