What is this? (broken part)

I was driving home from work yesterday and I heard a terrible noise from my front and my front right wheel locked on me O.o

I am not too knowledgeable but like learning to fix my jeep, I need to know what part this is. I know I will need a universal joint but what is the part that is connected to the universal joint called? I have an arrow pointing to it in the picture below

I think it's a front right inner axle.. but when I was looking at them online they had a round disk on the end that should be connected to the universal joint.

Thnx

In this case you need the inner axle, the stub axle, and the Ujoint. Refer to them as drivers side or passenger side instead of left or right.

btw......that thing has been making a clicking noise for at least several days to have gotten to that situation. If you had checked that, you may have caught it in time to save the axles.

Note that your bolts are nearly destoyed that hold the hub on to the knuckle. So, you are going to need those too.

I unfortunately have experience with this same issue recently.

Here's what it looked like when I caught mine. Note that the axle was contacting the hub bolt in my case as well. Also, the wobbling of the axle tore up my inner axle seal (the grease on the inner C).

You can get a replacement shaft for pretty cheap at a U Pull It yard. There's plenty of HP30s from Cherokees out there. If you go this route, just make sure the shaft isn't from a vacuum disconnect housing. If you get a used shaft I would also replace the u-joint while your at it to Spicer 5-760x. Well regardless you need a new u-joint lol. Make sure you get the Spicer 5-760x which is upgraded newer and stronger joint than what came stock which was the 5-297x joint.

Have a look in your diff. You might want to bolt in a new Junkyard axle.

yeah if you have been paying attention i guarantee there were some indications of the joint going out.....if you would've changed the joint the inner/outer shafts would still be good.

good luck, the entire job should only take about 30-45 min to fix.

needing a new rig....

from the pics looks like when the joint when you kept on it for a little while to break the ears on the inner shaft and mess up the outer one pretty good so depending on how much movement the inner had you may want to change your inner oil seals too.

Tim, the ones you were looking at online with the disc on it were for ABS equipped TJ's. I don't think you have ABS, but they will still work.

Will work for Jeep parts...

I've worked on a couple of rigs from the rust belt. I've never been able to do anything underneath them in 30 minutes unless you use a cutting torch instead of a wrench. Note that his bolts (that require a 13 mm 12 pt) are sheared off about 30%+. I think the only way to take it apart is going to be to cut the hub bolts off with a torch.

I actually had the axles out not that long ago to put my aussie locker in and made sure to use antiseize on every so i'm thinking it won't be too bad with a 12pt bolt.

we'll see though when I fix it sometime next week

thnx alot for the info guys
