Is it a direct swap to put in the axle shafts out of a 95 TJ with bigger u-joint into a 93 YJ with the smaller ones?
Thanks

Many of the 94-95 YJs have the larger u-joints 297x vs 1310. Normally they come in ABS YJs, but some, like mine without ABS have them. I know that is a direct swap from one YJ to another, but do not think the TJ is as the passenger side shaft on a YJ is 2 pieces and on a TJ it is only one piece.

1995=no TJ's just YJ's
1996=0 TJ's or YJ's
1997=TJ's

It may be older. I figured they are all the same. I wanted to loose the disconect and just run the solid shaft with larger u-joints.

Yeah but I'm pretty sure you can use the one-piece shafts in a YJ. You just have to remove the shift colour and other bits. And you probably won't need the c-clip anymore. Of course, I'm just speculating here.

Wouldn't you also need to install an inner axle seal on the passenger side? IIRC, the YJ has a seal out by the shift collar, which probably won't work with the TJ shaft (no seal surface there?).

So all that would be needed to be done is remove all the disconect junk and install a axle seal in the diff?

I'll answer with a confident "maybe."

Pretty much, yeah. Of course, in order to install the seal you'll have to pull the carrier out, which means removing the shaft on the other side as well.

We're also ASSuming that the necessary machining has been done so that a seal can be installed. That's pretty likely, though.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes. Maybe this could end up in the YJ FAQ?
