Jeep WK Rear Drive Shaft
The 2005-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee came with a poorly designed stock rear drive shaft. The large diameter aluminum shaft is vulnerable to rock damage. The plastic boot is easy to tear. Worst of all, the non-greaseable universal joints are not replaceable, someone had the great idea to permanently stake them into the shaft. The only way to replace the joint is to replace the entire shaft. Ours is different, ours is made from steel. The Tom Wood's WK rear drive shaft comes with joints that are not only greaseable but are also replaceable.
Key product features
- 2.5" diameter 0.083" wall USA made DOM steel tube.
- Forged slip yoke.
- Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or Spicer non-greaseable joints. Both joints are replaceable and held in place with retaining clips.
- 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 WK 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. Just measure the length of the stock shaft as shown in the photo above. It is important that you measure this with the stock shaft still installed in the jeep.
If your Jeep is lifted more than 2 or 3 inches, you may need a double cardan style rear shaft. For more details about the double cardan shaft, give us a call.
Driveshaft from Jeep dealer $1600cad (and backordered and non repairable...). This was around $750cad to my door and fit perfectly. The guys were incredibly responsive with questions to make this a hassle free purchase.
Follow the instructions and you'll get exactly what you need.
Fast delivery, great price(considering the alternative) and I'm back on the back roads, now with a serviceable drive shaft.
I was a bit dubious about their claims of next day shipping on a custom length driveshaft but true to their word it arrived in good time & was well packaged without a scratch. Fitted up easily, no vibrations, smooth as butter. When the front shaft needs doing I know exactly where to go.
I ordered this for my wk and the fitment and workmanship is top notch! I had a question about the install and called them and they answered the question I had and were great! Awesome company to deal with!!
