U-joints
« on: January 10, 2012, 12:34:38 PM »

Gotta get new U-joints for the CJ5(front driveshaft). Is it the same as a TJ driveshaft?

Also thinking of replacing the joints on the front of the TJ, got a squeak sound when i come up to a stop sign. I'll see about getting video.

I think you have 1330's on the TJ, but maybe a TJ guy should tell you. :dunno:

I know what I have on the TJ, those 785's are from the 1310 series. I'm wanting to know if they will fit CJ Dshafts.

Solved one question. Onto the next. What u-joint will fit a CJ5. I looked on JF and came up empty handed.

U-joint on my front yoke was rusted on. (Removed to see if I could find a squeak I have) Should I change my u-joints all around, F&R,  they seem to be original and are non-greaseable.



Also this is what I found on the CJ5's new DS. It says 350. So I assume 5-350x?

So since its a 1310 ( like a TJ ) I was thinking of using the 135x. Which looks to be the one used on the rear driveshaft.

read the spec. 5-153x is outside snap ring as used on the cj 49-06, the other is inside snap ring. Why don't you call them, is the 5-1310x a better bet? I would use only the best from Spicer ( ask Bob about parts counter substitutes, I know you don't listen to me)  :shaking:

its not a 5-1310x. Its a 1310 series. The TJ uses 5-785x but is a 1310 series aswell. they both have the same cap dimentions also.

Is there a difference between inside and outside in performance/safety?

You probably can't swap types, the yokes are designed for a specific type. Call 4wp, I need to get offline. Speaking of yokes, the u-bolt type are stronger than strap type if your going to be offroading.

Napa has some nice lifetime warranty, so I may just go for those and stop guessing around for part numbers. Then for the TJ get what I know from JF. Should I change my TJ's joints though?

  when i bought the ac delco,s i dint know you. right now i have  spicers in there . but the 2 replacements i bought were not.  i was told at the place where i bought them that all the 4x4 guys that come in there use them and no-one has came back to him complaining. i forget what brand they are but i hope there as strong as he said they were. he didnt have the spicers and i was impatient as usuall.  i want to ditch the 30 anyway.
