Axle Stub Shaft Interchange Between YJ and TJ
I'm working on getting my jeep through inspection and I needed to replace my spindle. I have a dana 30 in the front, bone stock.
While taking off the hub assemble the axle shaft nut completely stripped off so the threads are screwed. I've got two questions.
1) how do I get the bearing assembly/housing off of the spindle. I've taken all of the bolts out and its not budging. Is it pressed on? Haynes manual says nothing about it. Tried prying with a screwdriver, tried a hammer. I'm not worried about breaking it because I have a replacement.
2) due to the stripped axle stub shaft I need another one. I got the spindle off of a grand Cherokee. I was wondering if the axle stub shafts were interchangeable between the YJ, Cherokees and grand Cherokees. Any advice will be a huge help.
