  1. Jeep CJ Forum
    I just purchased my first CJ7, something I've wanted since I was 15 (and I am 35 years past that!). I am working on what modifications I will make as I do a frame up rebuild and I am pondering what to do with the front axle. The jeep has the Dana 30 WT axle with 3.31 gears. I was considering...
  2. Engines & Drivetrain
    I have a 1993 YJ with a 2.5L AMC 150 I4 mated to an AX-5 five-speed manual transmission. I am assuming this because I’ve been trying to do a little research and found this article Jeep Wrangler Engine Options - VehicleHistory which noted that for Transmission Options: The 2.5L I4 was offered...
  3. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So I want to refresh my Dana 30. The whole thing, there's no slop so I don't care to get into the gears, but I'd like to put in new U joints, ball joints, hub assemblies. Can someone familiar with the process give me a list of parts and seals I'll need to complete the job? Don't need part...
  4. Jeep CJ Forum
    For those interested, here is a short-ish write up of how I made brackets for some steering knuckle pods. Nobody makes them for Dana 30s, but I wasn't shocked since it's not particularly a rock crawling axle. The light pods I bought are dual color white and amber LEDs, and like most if not all...
  5. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Ok guys (or gals, whatev you identify as…lol). I picked up my third YJ (1991, 4.0, 5 spd, mostly stock drivetrain) a couple months ago, and most of the heavy lifting had already been done…lift, tires, 4.10 rear diff swap, SYE, Trac-Bar lift welded on, etc….she also came with a ring and pinion...
  6. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    My 5.9 limited ZJ has the worn NP249 transfer case coupler problem causing wheel hop in parking lots when it warms up. Upon further inspection, I also noticed I had a ripped open CV boot, and the U joint in the front drive shaft was worn. I don't wheel with it, and I don't drive it in the...
  7. Jeep CJ Forum
    Need some CJ7 help. Got the entire front axle assembly taken a part and am at a loss on the replacement for a dust shield/cuff that fits on the main axel rod between the knuckle end and the axle tube. I've attached an image to hopefully show what I'm looking to replace. This item is the exact...
  8. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I pulled this axle assembly from a '98 XJ in the salvage yard. Dana 30 HP, just pulled the cover, the stock fill plug is obviously magnetic with a bunch of residue, the odd area is where I touched it. Also, ^ and < markings on the bearing caps and housing makes me think these gears, or the...
  9. Engines & Drivetrain
    Hello everyone, first post here (I have a '93 Bronco that I have posted about on BroncoZone). My son has been playing bumper cars with my 2000 XJ. The last event involved a jumped curb that punched a 3" hole in the tire, damaged the aluminum rim and the lower swing arm mount on the right side...
  10. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Due to the lift, transmission and transfer case selection, I really need a HP Dana 30 as my front end. My driveline is way too off and I have caster/vibration issues. Being said, I also want to re-gear to 3.73, but I am having a issue trying to find one. I am guessing I will need to get the axle...

    2002 WJ w/QuadraDrive 30 I'm getting some small bidding mostly when I'm tight turning (like pulling out of the driveway) it does it more when turning left. But now over the past week or so, it feels like doesn't roll freely like it should when I first take off. Like something is holding the...

  13. Tires & Wheels
    So I had some death wobble the other day and when I looked at my front axle while my friend moved the steering wheel back and forth I saw that my ball joint wobbled out the mount on the steering knuckle...like really bad. I decided to go ahead and replace the steering linkage and track bar (I...
  14. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Well it seems that my Jeep's (97 TJ) issues and repairs have gotten over my head. After finally getting the fuel system, battery, starter, and other small issues resolved I thought I finally had a running Jeep again. I decided I should do a full fluid change out since I didn't know when the...
  15. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Don't be like me !! I'm working on an 89 XJ Laredo and here in Alaska, well over 75 percent of the year is wet in one form or the other. Busting corrosion is my BIGGEST job by far when it comes time to replace parts. And so it goes...the front hubs were about to give up the ghost @ 230K+ miles...
  16. WJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Decided to finally write up my install on an Dana 30 ARB locker in a 2002 WJ frontend. The ARB part number for me was RD100 as I already upgraded to some Yukon 4.10 gears. If you have 3.54 or higher gears you need a RD101. Please note I already installed my yukon gears myself years ago and they...
  17. Jeep CJ Forum
    I'm trying to get the front spindles off the 85 Dana 30 so I can get the axle shafts out. I've taken all the brake parts off and the backing plate for the disc brakes. It looks like the spindles just slip over the studs that are pressed into the steering knuckles, but they won't budge. Is...

    2006 LJ non-rubicon 42rle 33inch BFG KO2s stock 3.73 gearing lp30 front d44 rear. I've researched the topic of regearing and apologize for creating a new post on the subject but I have concerns regarding this specific ratio as I understand that it is relatively new for the D30...
  19. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    Searched and couldn't find anything exactly that is happening to me so I apologize if there is something already out there on this. So, this past weekend I went into my 2011 JKU Dana30 and did the maintenance on my front axle. I replaced Both U-Joints, Wheel Bearings(With new speed sensors)...
  20. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hey, y'all...Jeep Newbie Hoss here again...
