Driveshaft questions ?

Postby wookiee156 » Mon Jan 15, 2018 4:50 pm

Hey doodes my driveshaft is toast and I cannot seem to decide what to do as far as rebuilding or buying a new one from Jeff’s as I’m easily confused and well thought I should get the gfb community’s opinion.?? Hopefully this is not a subject that’s been beaten to death. If someone has a link to a thread that I couldn’t find thanks
Thanks again

Today I bought all the rebuild parts for a shaft on another rig. $106 for the CV Ball kit and $13 for each of the 3 U-joints. Al lot less expense compared to a new shaft from a vendor. My slip joint was good. Take the old part with you or get the part numbers from one of the vendors or here on this forum from one of the guys.

I just wanted to post I picked up a rebuild kit from Jeff’s for $75 (3 joints and the peice that goes in the cardigan) plus $8 for ubolts It only took a week to ship so hopefully this might help someone else with the same problem
