i have one question.
Quote:
A stock front driveshaft from a 91+ auto transmission and NP231 equipped XJ can be used with either style SYE.
why automatic? if mine is 5 speed, will it work? can i just use my front ds in place of my rear then get another one?

okay so 3 questions

It probably won't work due to the fact that your manual transmission is shorter than the auto, and therefore the driveshaft will need to be longer. You can definitely get a front driveshaft though, and just get it lengthened. That'd be cheaper than a brand new custom built one.

start calling around at shops, specifically driveline shops. They will do it for your for not very much at all.

As a side note, does anybody know if a manual front shaft will work as a rear shaft for a manual as it is longer?

So, looks like you have to take the front half of the CV off and swap them out. I already have that piece that must come with the RE shaft. Now I know what to do for a spare!!! That way I only need to carry 1 shaft and use it for either end in case of failure etc.

Spicer part number 211229x or Precision part number 627. These are the parts needed for adapting, that allready come with my RE rear driveshaft. So, would these allready come with the center pivot ball/bearing race? If so, thats all I would need and not a rebuild kit right???

Manual trans is shorter in length over all compared to the Auto. So the auto has a longer front shaft sinse the TC sits further back from the front axle. A manual trans front DS will be shorter sinse it sits closer to the front axle.

The manual trans takes a longer rear DS for the same reason.
