whats up guys. i got an 87 and the front cv joints make a bad clicking sound while in 4l. i have a parts jeep with a d30 in the front aswell. so my question is should i just do an axle swap or change the cv joints. i am not into working on cars but i got to get this going as a dd.
High pinion is the position of the pinion (where the drive shaft connects) relative to the centerline of the axle, below it is low pinion, above is high pinion. HP is desirable for ground clearance. The CV axle is weak compared to the D30, so swap it if you can. Where are you in BG? My in laws live between Lucia falls and the Heisson bridge.
i can feel something isnt right when i am just dd the jeep but when i put her in 4x4 and turn left or right with the front lock she makes a real bad clicking sound. i am not sure what the problem is but i have a whole other d30 front axle so i was jsut curious if i should swap them or replace parts in the axle under her now
yea its the 231 i think. and i was not on pavement when she was doing this. i was at a fishing hole off the beaten track and got down fine in 2wd but needed 4 to get back up the slick hill. i was carless a few months ago and came across my cherokee for 400 bucks. it ran and drove fine for the old guy. nw that i have it anything and everything is going tits up. and i drive her like a grandpa so i am nt rodding on her. this jeep has to be my dd slash camping rig.
Where the timing chain at and what does it have to do with my 4 wheel drive? That might be a dumb question. I think I got a car trailer lined up to use to get my parts jeep home. I started looking and my rear leafs are flat.... Lol so I hope my spares are better along with the stabilizer shock and power steering hoses. Lol I need just a couple things haha
