You could weld the keyway and file it back to size or replace axle. To upgrade, check with some of the big axle manufacturers like strange engineering etc. They could likely help or point you in the right direction. Anything you do will be $$ though.

SOURCE: 85 cj7 rear axle removal

Do you have bolt in axels? or are they held in with C- clips? If its bolt in axels you need to remove the bolts, and you may need an axel puller to get them out. If its got C- clips rear cover on rearend has to come off, and pin has to be removed to get C- clip out to get axel out.

SOURCE: i need to know the exact width of a 1983 cj7 from

You will need more than just the length of the housings to do that. you need to know the distance from spring perch to spring perch, distance from perch to backing plate on each side and the offset of the center section, so that when mounted, the driveshafts are not running at an angle. You also need to find the pinion angle at rest: (the amount of upward or downward pitch of the pinion)
In making these measurements you can avoid the possibility of having one axle protruding further past the springs, or damaging universal joints by having them run at an angle that isn't correct.
You can find lots of info on swaps at several online jeep forums. Many of the people there have done swaps and have taken those measurements and have the info you need to do it correctly.
If you have access to a welder, cutting tools and jigs, that opens up numerous possibilities as any differential can be used in any vehicle if it is properly prepared before install!! Just offhand, i don't think that the wagoneer units will fit because it is much wider than a cj. Try jeepforums .com for swap info.
good luck

Sound like either fuel or ignition. Have you replaced any fuel filters? I would check the condition of the distributor cap and wires as well. Moisture could be a factor.

85 cj 7 locker problem


bad LSD? (limited slip diffr)

are you 100% sure it\'s NOT and open axle?

my guess, is you really meant is that one tire is slipping on ice?

and is in 4wd , am i correct>?

that is normal for open axles, try dragging the foot brake.

this gives you poor mans LSD.

btw, my 08 jeep JK, does this with software.

my has and open rear axle, no LSD

so the PCM uses the ABS to drag the brakes and force torque to

all other non slipping wheels.

but you can do the same,(near) drag the foot brake, and you will move . try it.



if it is and LSD 3rd member, then its bad. (need it serviced)

Rear wheels, do they use shims?


I believe moog or someone makes a shim that goes between the
axle housing and the wheel bearing to adjust the alignment.
However,if the rear camber is out(the wheels tip in at the top)
The coil spring will also cause this,if the back end is lower than
the front ,bet on the springs.
Easy way to tell,,just jack the vehicle up by the rear bumper in the
center of the back.
only a few inches ,if the wheels "stand " back up the coil springs are at fault.
The Firestone guys are correct I think but that is only a "band-aid"
on the real problem.

How do you pull axle on 1978 jeep cj7


Front or rear? Rear I'm going to assume you spun a hub.First wheel, brake drum,mounting bolts that hold the axle to the rear end, all come off. Then you take a slide hammer to remove the axle from the housing. Sometimes the will simply fall out (not very often).Rmember to replace the bearing race in the housing. And torque the nut on the new setup to what the instuctions say. Remeber you are cutting threads into the axle as you tighten it up. The tighter the better. Hope this helps.

I have 1985 cj 7 with an amc 20 rear differential, and i put a new axle kit and seals, but the right seal keeps leaking. what can be causing this problem?


By axle kit, you are referring to new bearing? I'd check the axle seal surface. Sometimes they wear beyond the ability of the seal to do it's job.If it's "borderline", I have had some success by filling the cavity inside the seal with black silicone sealer and letting it dry before installing. That helps keep the seal in contact with the axle.I'd also use some on the outside of the seal housing to prevent seepage there. Always use a small amount of grease on the seal lip when installing. Otherwise the seal can burn before lube reaches it. If that kit was not a bearing, replace the bearing as slight wear can easily open the seal enough to permit a leak. If the axle serves as the inner bearing race make sure that isn't worn either. There used to be an off-set bearing kit available for worn axles but not sure they made them for Jeeps.
There are several reasons an axle can leak. Not being able to see exactly what you are working with, I've pretty much covered all the things I'd look at and tricks I use to make things work even when they sometimes should not.
Hope one of them helps!!!
