Good luck with the repair bill...
Awh crap, i hope that's not the case....

Well, maybe you'll be "lucky" and only have a smoked pinion bearing or something.

Fingers crossed...

If yer gonna fight, fight like the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark.

I think it's been a progressive thing. I think it started when my front ds came loose on the highway. I was wheeling for about 3 hours just fine. Then i can out to the parking lot in 2wd, turned sharp on the pavement and that's when i herd the strange popping. Every time it pops the steering shots straight for a second.

Good news! Everything looks good. No metal shavings, no cracks, chips, nothing. The fluid was pretty dirty and grainy and the pinion was really loose. Soooo, hopefully that is why it was acting up.

That's good news! Will the pinion nut tighten back down or do you need a new crush sleeve? Either way, lots less work and $$$

Hmm, I'll try it out. I don't know anything about the crash sleeve though.

usually there is a sleeve over the pinion shaft that crushes between the upper and lower bearings to help keep the pinion from moving in and out. I know with the GM 10 and 12 bolts once you crush that sleeve, a lot of times you had to change it out before you could get the proper torque back on the nut. If that's the case, it's not that big a deal, just a lot of work to pull the carrier, then the pinion.

For sure try and crank the nut down and tighten it up. If you can get rid of the slop that way you should be golden!

Not yet, I'm just waiting for pay day to get the kit. Im also going to be looking for a new front drive shaft. I went to get my current one balanced the other day and they told me there was too much play in the slip and i needed a new one.

Curt told me he thinks a xj shaft would work, do you know anything about this?

I may be wrong but I think the stock front Xj shaft is a dc setup which would require are different kind of yoke on the tc, but like I said I could be wrong.......I had my slip you on my shaft replace a yr ago and I am all ready for a new one again. I have happy with my rear tw shaft so I am thinking of getting made up for the front but that has to wait till BONUS/TAX time :/

I'll have to spend some time at the jy with a tape measure and see what will work.

Now that I think about it, front xj drive shafts are cv shafts. Did the yj's not come with cv shafts in the front?
