TJ Rear Drive Shaft, Double Cardan
Rear drive shaft for Jeep TJ or LJ. Does not fit Rubicon model. Double cardan type, also known as a CV. This is what you need if your Jeep is lifted and you are experiencing vibrations or other problems due to increased angles. Shaft will require a slip yoke eliminator. May also require adjustable control arms to run smoothly.
- 2" diameter .120" wall USA made DOM tube.
- Bigger and stronger than stock spline stub.
- Forged slip yoke.
- Greaseable CV center ball.
- Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or non-greaseable joints.
- Comes with new CV bolts with reduced head for ease of installation.
- Best of all every shaft is custom built to whatever length you need. So you can be sure that you will get the right thing the first time around.
Jeep TJ rear drive shaft lengths vary a bit and we want to make sure you get the right thing. That is why we require a length measurement before building the shaft. Measuring is simple and easy. You can read more about how to measure in the link below. Shafts shorter than 16" need to be ordered with the S spline.

We recommend a new set of straps and bolts to securely attach your new drive shaft.
My old tj had drive line vibration. After installing an sye and a tom woods drive shaft the vibration is gone.
Absolutely a great product and easy to navigate the order page to make sure you received the right products.
After putting a raised skid plate and adjustable control arms on my '06 Unlimited I had some vibrations. Slight shudder on a quick take off from a stop and slight vibes at 40 - 50 MPH. Tried and tried to adjust the vibes out but couldn't. Installed an Advance Adapters SYE then measured for a driveshaft. The non greaseable U-joints I wanted were not in stock and they called me to see if I wanted to wait for them or have greaseable ones installed. I chose to wait as I was in no hurry. After installing the driveshaft and dialing it in, it's as smooth as it ever has been at all speeds. Very satisfied.
The slip yoke eliminator kit (Advanced Adaptor + Tom Woods Double Cardan drive shaft) fit perfectly on my 2003 TJ 4.0L Sport with 3” Rubicon lift. It completely eliminated the vibration under acceleration. The parts showed up exactly as ordered and staff were very helpful by phone with a few questions I had before ordering. This is a must have if you lift your jeep.
You definitely get what you pay for here. Called to verify what measurements were needed then placed an order online. Two days later it had shipped and had the driveshaft within the week. Biggest thing I noticed was they balanced the double cardan. I've never seen weights on the joint as well as the shaft. Also impressed with packaging. Had a pvc piece taped in to keep the driveshaft from compressing and squirting the grease out. Obviously they take pride in their products, enough so they send several stickers for you. Definitely recommend
