  1. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hoping I might get some advice from some more experienced folks here. I have an ‘02 TJ project that im slowly sorting out. It runs great for 200k miles but the rust has caused significant weight loss. The rear of the frame I had repaired which shored that up nicely. The front of the frame is...
  2. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So, Im restoring this jeep to some semblance of its former glory. I just did the Durango steering box swap. Response is much nicer. Too bad it takes a quarter turn to the right while under load to keep it straight, and then a quick dart back to normal when you lift or youll be riding the...
  3. 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...
  4. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Ok, I now bought a HP D30 for my ZJ at the salvage yard (from a 1996 XJ). I have it apart and the ball joints out, now I have a specific question that I hope someone has done before. I'm trying to get proper driveline angle plus at least 6* caster. Right now my LP D30 has terrible caster, With a...

    I found a HP Dana 30 for my front, but it does not have anti-lock brakes. My current LP does, can I just use the axles and knuckles off my LP Dana 30, replacing the ball joints? Thanks!
  6. 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...
  7. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Hi Jeep enthousiasts, Since 6 months I own an XJ Cherokee from 1999 - a dream come true! But since a month or so a noise developed which seems to come from the power steering unit. Even when standing still with idling engine a noise occurs when turning the wheel. The noise initially only...
  8. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I have a 97 laredo and began to hear & feel clicking sounds (moving in a straight line) in the front. 6 months ago, I had the front axles & hubs replaced and everything was working well up until a week ago (with the click sound). I jacked up the front and put on jack stands to spin the wheels...
  9. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    My front pinion is making a lot of noise and the driveshaft needs work. Its past winter so I was thinking about bulling it all apart before the bearing goes all together, I also want to re-gear to 3.73 (It's 3.55 now) and I believe I need a new carrier anyway (can anyone confirm that?). Also I...
  10. 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...
  11. Jeep CJ Forum
    I'm replacing the suspension on my '73 CJ5 and have come across a situation with the front leaf springs. The springs have a centering pin on them however the pad on the bottom of the front axle has no hole for the pin. Is there something missing that goes between the springs and the axle pad? I...
  12. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I have a 95 zj, 4.0 auto with a NP242 I put in it so I can use the full time during the winter. I'm not a trail guy so I'm not that demanding on the drivetrain. (would not mind some trails but I don't know of any within 200 miles from here) Anyway, I am getting a 93 zj 4.0 factory 5-speed (one...
  13. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Hey Guys, So I just picked up a 98 ZJ Quadra-Trac to replace my 96 that had Selec-Trac. My axle question is can I basically plug and play U joint axle shafts as a direct replacement to the CV's that came with the Jeep? And hints/tips/thoughts from anyone that has tried or done a similar...
  14. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Long story short: TJ wrecked, INS totaled, I bought back, sat in garage for 4 years and now rebuilding. I bought a complete front axle from someone on Craigslist as mine was destroyed. I'm in the process of trying to get the ring/pinion to match up in the new housing. Based on the pictures...
  15. WJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Started getting a grinding type noise coming from the front left I thought. Researched the forums and thought it was low/ old diff fluid. changed that still had the noise. just changed the front left axle shaft today but still getting the grind. Possibly not enough friction modifier?? axle shaft...
  16. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I am preparing to do a front axle swap on my 1999 Cherokee Sport. The axle is a Dana 30 High Pinion and I plan to replace it with the exact same thing. I just recently bought one off the guy who built my Jeep (rebuilder). He is no longer building Jeeps, just selling off his parts, so now I have...
  17. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Previous owner installed a RC 3.25" lift and RC track bar in the front. He had it installed by a shop and looks like they drilled another hole to the lower right of the original hole. I am planning on putting a stock bar back on. Should I worry too much about the extra hole causing stress on...
  18. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I built a Dana 35 front axle for my Cherokee. I know that this could be filed under, "why bother?" I have my reasons, surplus parts and junk yard availability being two of them. I thought I would see if anyone was interested before I shared the experience.
  19. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Whenever I put my XJ into 4hi it starts to shudder and jerk forward as if it is hesitant to move forward. It's not making a terrible noise, however it does have a considerable amount of vibration and movement (imagine pumping the clutch really fast while on the gas). The strangest part is that...
