Yes u can drive with it out its not going to hurt anything do your self a favor like i did on mine go the junk yard get a yolk off a dana 30 the xj will work also and 93 to 95 grand cherokees use the same yolk and drive line make sure u get the u joint style drive line and yolk its only like 30 to 40 dollars for these parts versus 150 to 280 to have the crappy cv style driveshaft rebuilt it way stronger

This is not recommended and could result in fluid loss from the transfer case.

Front drive shaft needs to be replaced I cant afford it right now, can i drive with out it hooked up


Hi, not sure what type of front diff these have, if it's only a noisy CV joint, it should be no problem with it in still, it makes a racket when you turn sharply, but shouldn't fall out etc, if it has a solid front axle, a broken axle could be bad, If there's no chance of the wheel falling off due to your problem, you should be able to just remove the front driveshaft, hope this helps :)

Whining/grinding noise at deceleration


We have the same problem at our shop. We haven't rebuilt the front differential yet. We tried 3 different shafts on 2 different Jeeps and the noise is on both just the same. By greasing the front driveshaft cv joint, we got he noise to quiet some, but it is still way to loud. With the driveshaft out, the noise is gone. We are about to buy a new shaft from the dealer for $600. There are some service bulletins about some noisy driveshafts.

97 ford explorer awd bad right front cv joint


Yes you can, If you have taken the front drive shaft off, you can even still drive with the CV joint in place till you want to remove it. You may get some vibration around corners till you replace the CV joint or remove it totally.
But if your going to remove it, might as well wait till you have the replacement so you only do the job once. I had a Bad CV joint on a AWD Chevy van and did the same thing so i could still use it, and then replaced the CV joint when the weather got better.
Good luck and hope this helps.

yes,they should pull out with a little effort,they have an internal lock ring on the shaft,if they don't pull out you may have to use a pry bar between the inner joint and the case to pry it out.

Noise from front


Is it full time or part time 4 wheel drive? You should check the front driveshaft u-joints.
