Does anyone know if the Dana 35 from a 98 Cherokee will fit a 95 YJ without any modifications?

spring perches are mounted on a spring over axle configuration vs a yj spring under axle. shock mounts are mounted different. if you have the welding skills cut the perches off weld them under and cut shock mounts remount to yj specs. it would be easier to find another yj d35 and just put it under there

what he said. and honestly, why bother? if your gonna change a whole axle, why not upgrade?

I also have a intermittent clicking sound coming from the front right wheel area, my first thought is a bearing would all agree?

I have the same clicking noise from the front left. I think it's either the bearings in the hub or u-joints...

i have the same clicking noise too out of the right front. it could either be wheel bearing or ujoint. and having 33s mounted on 15x10 rims w/3.75 bs is not helping.

Maybe I will go ahead and swap out all the ujoints the same time I am changing out my rear end. I found one out of a YJ with 4.56 gears and a lockright locker.
