I just got the RE 1801 kit for my SYE on the YJ. But cannot for the life of me find a driveshaft that will fit the flange. So what are you guys doing to get around this.

I have found drive shafts with the same bolt pattern but will not fit over the spool. I wanted to find a shaft that all I had to do was shorten and balance but that is getting to be very difficult.. So need as much input as possible on this one.


I want to get this SOA out of the way, but need this driveshaft..

How close is the fit? Can you take care of it with some lathe work?

I wish I could but there would be nothing left. I talked to Craig out at jeep thrills he said thet he called a guy and he used a bronco II shaft. He was not sure if it was a front or a back. But he did say that he thought it might be front, thinking the rear does not have a cv joint. I have no idea what a Bronco II shft looks like. Any insight..

Try Wosney's (spelling error, probably) or Engine Finders. I believe Chris Waterman got one from a Ford car of some make.

Monte Carlo driveshafts have that flange.

You can replace the top of a regular CV joint with the Monte Carlo flange. Might as well install new joints and a new CV centering kit since you'll have it all apart anyway...
