2000 Jeep wj Driveshaft problem
Hello, I own a 2000 jeep wj 4.7. I had a front driveshaft issue that I put off for a long time but the noise started to get worse so I decided I’d do some research. I realized that the traditional CV joint driveshafts that come with the Jeep are fairly unreliable and most people convert this to U joints. I didn’t want to spend the money to convert it so I found a brand new driveshaft for $100. I ordered it and put it in myself. For the most part it fixed the issue. No noise anymore, about a week later I was driving on the free way and started to hear a rattle. The minute I let my foot off the gas (now coasting) the initial sound came back. I took it to a shop and my mechanic said it’s definitely the driveshaft and the company probably sent me a faulty part so I got a new one ordered through warranty. It arrived last Friday. I replaced it on Saturday and drove it around. Fixed it again, no noise. The next day I got on the free way and about 10 minutes into the drive heard the same noise again. Again the minute I took my foot off the gas (coasting) the exact same noise came back. I’m not sure what the problem is. Is the best bet just to convert the front driveshaft to ujoints? Please help.
