Hey guys, I was wondering is there any reason that you can not reuse the cad housing once a one piece shaft is installed instead of cutting and drilling a steel cover plate?

Once you install the TJ axle shaft you really dont need it. I reused my cover and left the shift fork on just so that I would still have the 4wd light work on my dash, that is really all it does once its not used to move the sleeve to engage the 4wd. If that makes sense...

Cool I just mainly wanted to see if the cover staying in place had any negative effects. Until I can cut out and drill a cover for it. Sounds like u can

My wires to the CAD unit had been cut, but I have no issues with the 4wd. I've had to make a trip all the way back from the trails on the front axle only, so I know it works fine. I reconnected the wires to see if I could get the 4wd light to come back on, to no avail. Sometimes when I am in 4lo it will come on, stay on for a while, then go back off. Its a bit sketchy that it has been down there for 17 years but it still works.

You don't get the axle shafts balanced. You may need to get the front drive shaft balanced and any driveline shop should be able to help you out with that. If you don't have or know of a driveline shop in your area, go to a local truck stop and ask them.

I am trying to do this now and for the life of me I cant get the seal to go in. I have bought two seals, one from Napa and one from Advanced and neither will go in. I am trying to get them on the passenger side, inside the carrier and it is not working. I have a 95 yj and I cant get this to work. The one from advanced is a National part # 710068. The Napa is SKF part # 11899

I have a late 80's XJ axle with disconnect going into my TJ. Anyone have confirmed part numbers for the seals? I keep getting conflicting information everywhere. Searched extensively and read the Stu Offroad article.

Can a person buy a new passenger side axle? Versus one from a salvage yard. If you can, which one would you order. Used parts are scarce out here, maybe a used one on the net is possible.
