WJ Front Driveshaft Conversion Kit
his kit comes with everything you need to convert your ball in socket Saginaw front driveshaft to a U-joint style C.V. driveshaft. Although not very strong, the factory Saginaw driveshaft works fine up to a lift height of about 4''. Beyond 4'' of lift this driveshaft may not be able to tolerate the angle created by suspension droop. This will cause accelerated driveshaft wear.
New double cardan C.V. driveshaft (custom lengths available)
Transfer case yoke (you will need to re-use your dust shield)
Dana 30 Pinion yoke with U- bolt kit for fastening driveshaft to transfer case yoke
(optional) To properly replace a crush sleeve style pinion yoke, you also need to replace the pinion seal and the crush sleeve - 46194 & NS5778.
Detailed Installation Instructions
For the ultimate in performance, we now offer Tom Woods multiple CV driveshafts for WJ's. This is recommended for any WJ owner going to 5.5'' or more of lift to eliminate vibrations stemming from the front drive shaft. This available option adds another joint to the front drive shaft cutting the work load of each u-joint to just half. This option adds $210 to the price of the conversion kit.
