Yj driveshaft question

Does anybody know if you can use a cherokee cv joint from the front axle for a rear axle for a yj? Are the ujoints the same or are they different sizes?

If you're talking using a shaft for a SYE, then it'll fit but the length is a tad long. The ujoint size depends on the Yj. Fill in your profile.

Yes you can use them. You will need to have it shortened and probably rebalanced.

I did this when I did my 8.8 and Tummy Tuck...Generally speaking, I wouldn't recommend it...Read my thoughts here:

Damn Stan! You probably have more time and effort in that write up alone than I have in my jeep mods! Nice job.

Thanks fellers, looks like there's a lot to consider. Looks like I'll see what I'm working with and go from there

If you would have done what was suggested in post #2, you would be doing yourself a favor. Otherwise, you'll be dragging your feet forever.
