Help with 95 YJ Universal Joint

I heard some noise when shifting and decided to look at my u-joints. The one connected to the rear drive shaft was in pretty bad shape. I went to autozone and got a replacement but it doesn't seem like it fits correctly. Its a cheapy Neapco PN 1-0153. I have some pictures of it sitting in the location where its supposed to fit. If you can identify if its the right part or not and what would be a not too expensive correct U-joint to use I would appreciate the help.

without knowing more about your lift and /or axle it is hard to tell. it APPEARS as though you have a 1330 size yoke on the axle. it is possible that you also have the wrong ujoint in the box.

95's have a bigger driveshaft u joint. 1330. Get the correct one, I do not think you need a combination just a standard 1330 joint.

My 95 rear driveshaft takes 2 different u-joints. The one at the pinion is different from the slip yoke end.

I just ran into the same exact problem this past weekend. I was also planning on doing the U-joint strap to U-bolt conversion.

Its a stock 94 YJ, so i couldn't understand why the 1310 set up was too small.

I'll give the 1330 a try as well.

Well the good thing is the spicer is a better part than the Autozone one.

I learned one thing from helping my son with his F150... take the old U-joint with you if you can. I found out the hard way that Ford is famous for throwing a couple of different sizes in their stuff for no rhyme or reason. It just saves an extra trip to the parts store if you take the old one.

Thats exactly what I did and ususally works but somehow the PO had fit smaller parts than what were needed in there...Oh and I did buy the neapco equivalent of those spicer sizes I listed hehe they were cheap which is good for the jeep.
