YJ axle u-joint replacement

I will be changing out the axle u-joints on an 89 YJ with the CAD on the passenger side.

My questions is, do I need to do anything with the CAD in order to remove the passenger side axle, or can it just be removed and then re-installed the same as on a typical TJ?

if your not removing the inner axle then you dont need to touch the CAD.

And as always, be careful removing and replacing the axle shaft to not damage the seal. In my opinion, it's the hardest to replace.

OK - thanks for the feedback guys. Will definitely give that seal some extra special care.

I believe in 2wd the CAD connecting collar and fork are shifted onto the outer shaft. In 4wd the collar is pushed inboard and connects the intermediate and outer shaft. In other words, when you pull the outer shaft, the collar will be displaced. When you re-install the outer shaft, I would open the CAD to make sure the collar is good to go.
