CJ Rear Drive Shaft, Double Cardan
Rear drive shaft for Jeep CJ. 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 CV compatible yoke for transfer case (26ZCV-131) or (10ZCV-131), and may require axle shims (SHIMS).

Jeep CJ lengths drive shaft lengths vary a bit and we want to make sure you get the right thing. That is why require a length measurement before building your shaft. Measuring is simple and easy. You can read more about how to measure in the link below.
Shafts less than 16" must be built using the S spline. Shafts less than 14.375" will require special modifications and must be ordered over the phone.
Great HD replacement for the original. Balanced well, no vibration. Grease fittings on everything including the centering ball.
I put an Old Man Emu kit (YJ conversion set up) on my CJ-7. It put the Jeep up about 2.5 to 3" from stock. Perfect amount of lift except for the transmission drop spacers (designed to prevent driveline binding) that created a clearance issue in the engine compartment. So I took the spacers out and had a highway speed vibration. So i clocked the rear end a little and had a slow speed binding. Probably had both but couldn't tell?
So I did what every self-respecting home-shop car nut would do... I made contact with Tom Woods about it, got the recommendation to buy a double-cardan shaft and yoke, made the measurements and bought it all online, made just for my rig. Installation took about an hour including the new yoke.
I took care to set this up properly, and it just so happened that I had already put the right size wedges under the axle to make the double-cardan shaft work properly. Now I've got nothing. Not nothing in a bad way, but nothing in a GOOD way. As in, NO BINDING and NO VIBRATIONS. I can't say enough good things about this purchase.
Went in easy no more vibration!!!! Runs smooth Down the road now !!!
I lifted my 1980 cj5 4” and then I had rear driveshaft vibration issues. With this new driveshaft I fixed my problem, now the jeep runs nice and smooth. Is a little bit expensive, but it worth it. Is a really heavy duty construction, and the shipping to Puerto Rico was fast. Highly recommended!
Excellent quality driveshaft. Installation was a breeze and it eliminated all my drive line issues. I Highly recommend Tom Wood’s Custom Driveshafts!
