May look into it but I've had South Bay do some work in the past and they do a grand job of it. If nothing else I'll be going to Drivelines Inc in Mission Viejo, but am fairly sure South Bay will be able to fab me up some beef. He's a stand up guy that warrants all his work, and they're local!

He built some shafts for a buddy's Mog that are other worldly lol

Can I ask what kinda price for a front DS?

1310 or 1350? Just for info. I'm not looking to open some debate.

I'd assume fairly competitive prices. Bear in mind that Krawl is simply a reseller of other mass produced products, as opposed to a driveline shop specializing in just that. Generally, the Tom Wood's front shaft for a TJ goes for about 350.

In this case, I'll have a scratch built front DC driveline built, likely with thicker walls than the TW front shaft for right around 350 in cash. I'll confirm this after I talk to both them, and also drivelines inc tomorrow.

Can you squeeze a 1350 joint on the front DS of a TJ?

I guess you could if you changed the output yoke on the D30 and likewise on the TCase.

That said, I'd rather the weak link be the U Joints than the tube itself. U Joints are a dime a dozen when you figure the cost of a centering kit, tube, fab work etc. haha

At the end of the day it's not about creating something that doesn't break, as the only way you can stop it from breaking is by leaving it in the garage. I think the real task is setting things up so that when something DOES break, it's a weak link you left in place, as that weak link was the least expensive/easiest thing to replace.

For the same reason, I won't be doing 35 splines in my 44. The breaking point ends up becoming the carrier/locker/spider gears, and frankly that's a hell of a lot more expensive/difficult to replace than an axle shaft

Hey after that hollister trip. Whenever I accelerate from a complete stop, something from my rear end feels broken or shakes. The more I accelerate from a complete stop the more I here this thumping noise. After like 5-10 mph though it disappears. Only happens at the beggining and only from a complete stop. Anyone know what it can be? Bent driveshaft? And thing broken in axle? Or I joints. My driveshaft is stuff on their so the u joints are loose or broken but idk

I would inspect the u-joints, maybe pull the diff cover off look for any kind of metal shavings. Could be the bearing. Don't wait to long could get worse and turn into more $.

Whoops this sometimes auto corrects my words wrong. But the u joints seem good because the driveshaft dosent move at all with my hand.

Not too familiar with axle specifics. But what bearings?

They are the axle bearings on the inner pinion and outer pinion. You'll have to drain the oil and pull the cover. There may be others on here that know a little more. Anyone want to chime in?
