Well I fixed the rear end of that front drive shaft. But when I put it back in place, somehow the front end fixed cv joint, either the gasket ring or something slipped, but it flung grease all over the first drive... all over my cat converter which burned, causing white smoke, I was like “ oh shit, now what?!?” Grease all over my new starter I had installed, everywhere.
I opened the boot to make sure there was still plenty of grease left. Took some extra Cv joint grease and tried to smash it in there. I would prefer to replace that end as well.
any known place that sells the front end fixed CV joint online? The only ones I can find are for the regular WK Cherokees. With 4x4 limited slip.
I’m actually putting the wheel back on and taking it for a test drive as we speak. I’ll let you know. But I know that when I go in reserves there is def some clunking in my driver side axel as that cv boot lost grease from a seized wheel bearing. When you don’t do maintenance on a vehicle for these types of parts since 07, they are a son of a bitch to pop! Lol
Back from the drive! The clunk from the driveshaft is gone. But I think the clunk I still have is from the driver side Axel. Which I have a complete driver side axel assembly coming I bought from rockauto.
