I'm still on the hunt, I went to the local yard, found a bunch of cherokees, but they all were missing the front axle...someone beat me to it! Oh well, I'll keep looking. I did find some older ones that would have the same size u-joint I have now...but I did have one question that I couldn't get my brain around since it's friday and all...the axle shafts are the same for a low pinion versus a high pinion application right? I would think they would be.
Also, I have another question. I do most of my own maintenance, but I will not attempt gears. If I'm going to do this swap, what are my concerns with removing the front carrier to put the seal in? Am I OK to remove it and just put it back in without changing anything? Looking for a little advice, thanks!
