Stock XJ Rear Drive Shaft
Rear drive shaft for Jeep XJ Cherokee. Stock type shaft for vehicles with no lift and no slip yoke eliminator. Built using either our Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or Spicer non-greaseable joints. If your Jeep is lifted and you are experiencing vibrations or other problems due to increased angles, your Jeep will require a slip yoke eliminator and double cardan drive shaft.
IMPORTANT You must measure the joint size where the shaft attaches to the rear axle. There are two possible joint sizes. Select the size that fits your yoke.
We recommend a new set of straps and bolts to securely attach your new drive shaft.
I’ve seen Tom Woods’ driveshafts mentioned in high regard over the years on NAXJA. I had the over-60mph-vibes that weren’t due to unbalanced wheels or tires. I tried new u-joints on the 22 year-old driveshaft and it didn’t help—the old one was still wobbly. I put my order in and had this new beauty on the other side of the states in less than a week! I would absolutely buy another from them.
Don't have an urge to go SYE on my mostly stock XJ but I was having a strange high frequency vibe at 30-35 that nothing I did could fix, even tried multiple u-joint replacements and having the stock shaft rebalanced. No more vibes XJ goes down the road like glass.
I just measured like they told me to and boom, huge overlap and it’s already greased and very high quality. Price is great too. Awesome experience
Fantastic service. I got a phone call the day after I ordered to confirm the measurements I included (I was not sure the u joint size) and they immediately took care of it and were making right then and there. There's a reason Tom Woods is the most recommended.
Just installed my second Tom Wood's custom length drive shaft for my Jeep MJ! The build quality is outstanding and the length was perfect. It is so nice having a beefier drive shaft that is balanced for tail and road use. Shawn replied quickly and thoroughly to questions that I had.
