Drive shaft or axle shafts?

Drive shaft...upgrade to CV joint shaft.

Axles shafts... replace them.


Jack Jeep up and place it on jack stand.

Take the tire off.

Use 9mm Allen wrench I think and remove 2 slide bolts on caliper and take caliper off, but dont let hang by hose.

Take two bolts off back side holding caliper bracket on.

take cotter pin off spindle nut.

Take spindle nut off. 35mm or something like that.

Take rotor off. May need persuasion from mallet (NOT METAL HAMMER).

Take 3 bolts off back side of knuckle holding hub assy on. Their in a triangle and like 15mm. Take hub assy off.

Pull drive shaft out.

Install in reverse order.

The 3 bolts that hold the wheel bearing in are 12pt bolts and are easy to round off if they are rusted on.

the 3 bolts holding the hub on are 13mm 12 point, have a 12mm 12 point impact socket handy which you can hammer on if they are too
rusted for the 13mm to grip. hub nut is 36mm and is done upto 175 ft/lbs

I used pb blaster and a 13mm 12 socket on a 1/2 drive 3ft breaker bar to get them loose after rounding the top one. Had to use a bolt extractor for that one.
