Yesterday I made a thread and in the heading I typed " Rear Driveshaft Repair" . The thread heading should of read Rear Axle Repair. I did not know how to edit thread heading?
Here is the thread; http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/r...repair-967046/
Anyway my question is:
The driveshaft bearing is definatly bad. I will replace the bearing.
A new axle is $97.00. The bearing surface on the old axle is not to bad but it is a little scored. Should I resurface the old axle?
Am I better off to just get the new axle for $97.00 and the matching bearing or ............. or to reface the old axle ?
What do you think?
Another thought was to replace the old axle for a new one the and use the old one for a spare in a emergency?
Another question: If one axle goes will the other be shortly behind? Should I replace both rear alxes while I am in there?
The YJ has about 133,000 miles.
