  • Dana 35 trouble NO MORE!!!

    Well, I spent the last two days working on my ZJ - my DD. It seems that it let me know by means of a peculiar "howl" that there was a problem. Apparently, the rear diff - Dana 35, the input seal was leaking, but only while moving, not a drop on the garage floor. It leaked a bit too much and I ended up rebuilding the whole diff.

    The Carnage:

          Sideshaft Trouble

          I have broken my right rear side shaft on my 97 ZJ twice in the last six mounths. The last time I had to also replacy the planetary gears in my rear diff. I would like to know if there is stronger side shafts available or would my next option be to go for diff-lock??

            You are dealing with the notorious D35 axle that is NOT known for strength. If you are going to continue to use it for more than on highway and occasional off road, then you need to upgrade to a stronger axle.

            If you want to keep the current axle, you can upgrade to the Superior Super D35 kit. Check with our hosts at www.4wd.com for additional information.
