Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
Splines on any shaft are used where two parts are joined together ie: your steering wheel is joined to the shaft by way of a spline. (serrated part of shaft that matches serrated receiver hole). In some cases there is no spline, but a flat is added instead which serves the same purpose of keeping the shaft from turning without turning the shaft it is attached to.
Some lower shaft joints can be either splined or use a flat. Be aware that some splines have a "locator" spline which essentially one fat spline that aligns with a wide spline groove in the receiver hole.
Most splines have a locking collar on them or a cross bolt that helps keep them together, except for the steering wheel that uses a nut on the top of the shaft.
Confused yet? Hope not!!!
