As far as I know, your ZJ should only have one rear.

Look here for info on your rear and front.

MDM gave you information for your ZJ. If you have the

93-98 V8 (5.2L or 5.9L) Grand Cherokee's

96-98 ONLY
D44a "aluminum center section" rear axle •Differential Location: Centered
•Stock axle splines: 30 spline shafts, no upgrades to spline count available
•Lug Pattern: 5 on 4.5"
•Width: 60.5" from wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting surface
•Notes for D44a: Not a bad axle with 33-35" tires, some care needed for the larger end, has been known to handle 37's with care. The aftermarket support is very limited for this axle due to the aluminum center section. The center section is very similar to the unit in the corvette. Many people replace the axle due to the limited gear ratio's available and the extremely limited availability of any traction device such as a locker.


What are the 3 rear ends the auto parts store states you have? You have a V8 engine and it's a 1998 correct? It should be a D44.

Next please fill out your profile to the best of your knowledge.

D30 is your front differential, D35 is a rear differential for a 6 cyl. jeep, D44 is a rear differential for an 8 cylinder jeep. You have indicated that you have the 8 cylinder engine and your rear differential is a D44. What are you doing to the diff?

Ok. Let's work on terminology. You have in a 4 wheel drive a front differential and a rear differential. You are showing your front differential in the picture. Is the differential leaking where the driveshaft connects to it?

If, so who is going to do the work to replace the seal, someone else or you?

Looking at your picture is your steering linkage bent? Post a picture showing your steering, front left wheel to right.
