YJ Rear Drive Shaft, Double Cardan
Rear drive shaft for Jeep YJ. Double cardan type, also know 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.
Key product features

- Greaseable CV center ball.
- Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or non-greaseable joints.

- 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 YJ 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.
IMPORTANT The '87-'93 model YJs use a 1310 series yoke at the axle. '94 and '95 models used a wider 1330 series joint. Please select the correct year for your Jeep in the drop down menu.

We recommend a new set of straps and bolts to securely attach your new drive shaft.
This is my second driveshaft purchased from Tom Woods and it's just a perfect as the first. I will use these guys for every driveshaft and associated part I need, and have had that though since my first purchase. Sean and the team worked with me through multiple phone calls to answer my (probably overthought) questions so the custom shaft I ordered was the perfect setup upon arrival. Not once did I feel like my questions were dumb, and appreciated the ACTUAL MATH they would run through with me to make sure I was getting the product I needed. Oh and their shipping rips, like they have their own B-1B cruising at mach 1.5 with it's quad afterburners straight to my house, where they drop their laser guided driveshaft aimed squarely at the back of my NP231J. F*&k yea.
Amazing craftsmanship and I can see its built better than others that I've tried. Rite out of the box was ready to install and fit perfectly! What a difference with balanced shaft in my yj! Works better than expected and look forward to order front shaft in future!
The U-Joints in Tom Woods Double Cardan Rear Drive Shaft installed in my 1994 YJ in 2002 started fail causing the drive shaft to vibrate. The failure of the joints was most likely due to my failure to keep them properly lubricated. All three U-Joints needed replacement. After checking a local driveline shop, I decided to order an new drive shaft from Tom Woods. In addition, I ordered a Strap and Bolt Set and a new Transfer Case Yoke. I ordered the shaft and other items on Thursday night and all items were shipped out on the following Monday. They came all assembled and protectively wrapped.
Thank you for the quick turn around. And, it fit exactly as it should. Best of all, the vibration has been eliminated. I am very satisfied.
You did awesome on my wife’s driveshaft, won’t go anywhere else you guys are great. Thank you so much
The folks at Tom Woods are great! Needed a new driveshafts after a trans swap in a 1994 YJ to get her back on the road. Ordered and received in the same week! No issues! And the cost is very reasonable, especially considering the crazy times we live!
Thank You Tom Woods and company!
And Let's go Brandon!
