Grand Cherokee Conventional Double Cardan


OEM Drive Shaft

For the Double Cardan (CV) drive shaft we have two options available. Upgraded heavy wall tube larger/stronger slip yoke & spline stub (S spline) @ $269 or the top of the line shaft with the longer travel slip & spline (XC or XB Spline) for $299. Of course, these would be built with our “Gold-Seal” universal joints. For long term value, We consider the top of the line shaft to be the best value.

Keep in mind though, that with greater lifts or the smoothest drive shaft, our multiple double cardan drive shaft may be your best choice (four U joints). This drive shaft can only be built with our S spline. The cost for this shaft is $479. The required pinion yoke would be $60.

 




The S spline is a conventional spline stub that will yield a safe, effective and usable stroke of 3”. The X spline is longer than the S spline. The X spline is cut for the full length of the spline stub. This gives a bit more than twice the contact area between the slip yoke and spline stub and a stroke of 4-1/2". This in and of itself will net more than twice the life on these two components.

With the XB configuration, we will use a heavy rubber boot which is banded down with stainless steel banding to seal all of the contaminates out and keep the grease in. The XC configuration uses the same slip yoke & spline stub but instead of using the rubber boot, we drill and tap the slip yoke for a grease fitting and use a dust cap which has convolutions that follow the spline stub for sealing. We consider the XB configuration to be the longest lasting and best value.
