Cj7 rear axle
Just bought a 83 cj7, after driving for a couple days the rr axle came out while driving. Thank god nobody was hurt. Anyway, it has one piece axles in it, i really dont see how the axle stays in there. I have new parts coming so maybe it will make sense, but it looks like the bearing will pull right trough.
I also have a 84 cj with 2800 miles that is perfect, i want to put a 2.5 lift on it and i wont off road it at all thats what my other jeeps are for. Any comments on the new rough country with nitro shocks?
It's a friction fit. The bearing and press ring on pressed on after the backing plate, which is the (the plate) bolted fast. The press fit has to slip in order for the axle to come out. Here's a drawing:
