Yes, but the cost of the u-joints/cv-joints (both ends) plus the labor involved in swapping out the u-joints, make a good argument for just replacing the half shaft as a unit. It's a lot quicker and cleaner.

Was told drive shaft was worn out needs rebuilt or new any 1 here of this


Rebuilding them consists of new U joints and maybe balanced. If it was so loose the the u joints wallowed out the keepers, Then yes, they would also need replaced. Cut off and welded on. That isn't a common problem, but I have had to replace a few. Not just on jeeps.

The rubber cover on the left side axel is tore. I need to replace the joint I think. How do I do this?


You will need to remove the front wheel. Unbolt the caliper and move aside. Remove the rotor. Remove the axle nut. Unbolt the 3 hub/ bearing bolts and remove hub assembly. Pull the axle shaft out through the opening left by the hub bearing. Cut off the old boot and clamps. Hold axle shaft and tap joint and axle stub off of shaft with a hammer. Install new boot on shaft and reverse steps for assembly.

Replacing a '98 Grand Cherokees ball joints


The only parts you need are the ball joints, upper and lower, a total of 4, if you need all 4. As far as tools, you'll need wrenches, a removal and installer tool, the ball joints are pressed into the control arms, and a ball joint to steering knuckle seperator tool.Without those special tools, you will never get them changed, if you do it yourself.
