Steering Shafts

In a steering system, the steering shaft connects the steering gear box to the steering column. The shaft eventually corrodes. When it begins to fail, it's common to hear popping sounds or clunking noises as you turn the wheel. If it becomes more difficult to turn, it's time to replace the shaft since having it break is dangerous. The needle bearings within the shaft have sealed grease within them but if they dry out, oxidation happens when moisture enters. Other symptoms, such as uneven tire wear and loose steering, are hints that steering column parts are wearing down and need replacement.

What to Look for When Shopping
When replacing steering shaft parts, you want to be sure the shaft assembly can handle modifications on your rig, such as oversize wheels and tires and lifted bodies. Select a heavy-duty replacement with a slip shaft, and needle-bearing or vibration reducing universal joints. Make sure to order the right shaft length. To be on the safe side, some shafts are fully adjustable and collapsible. Otherwise, order a size larger than you believe you need and cut down to size, if necessary. Some steering shafts are specific to manual steering or power steering while other can handle either.

Whether you're a weekend road warrior or you make outdoor adventures and heavy-duty work a part of your daily schedule, your Jeep helps you to get even the toughest job done. In turn, your steering wheel gives you the ability to make sure you're always charging forward in the correct direction. However, your steering wheel relies on a wide range of different parts in order to do its job. One of these parts is the Jeep CJ steering shaft, and you'd be stranded and unable to steer without it.

Moving Forward

When it comes to steering in the right direction, you simply can't get the job done without a good, strong Jeep Cherokee steering shaft on your side. These parts work with a variety of other steering pieces in order to keep you moving in the right direction. That's why replacing them in a timely manner is important if you've begun experiencing common steering issues such as drifting and vibration in the steering wheel.

Shopping Tips

When purchasing parts for your Jeep, you should never just spring for the cheapest piece you come across. Instead, pay attention to the merits each part has to offer. The typical Jeep CJ7 steering shaft fits with stock tie rod ends. Therefore, if you need a special fit for any reason, that's something you should keep in mind during the selection process. You can also choose to purchase a steering shaft kit instead of the single part, which includes retainers, bearings and other hardware you'll need during the upgrading process.

Price Guarantee

Whether you're buying from the biggest brand out there or choose to purchase a cheaper, more discreet part, we at 4WP believe you should get the best price possible when purchasing a YJ steering shaft. That's why we offer Jeepers like you a price guarantee. If you buy from us only to find the same part for less somewhere else within 90 days of your purchase, we'll match the price.


Jeep Steering Shaft & Conversion Kits
Hitting the road for an adventure is one of the many reasons why motorists prefer the experience offered by a Jeep. Though these vehicles are designed to go where standard cars cannot, there are still many adjustments you may wish to make in order to improve upon the experience provided by your Jeep. For many, the beauty of purchasing a Jeep is the flexibility of customizing the ride with specific aftermarket accessories and parts. One excellent way to achieve this goal is by making upgrades to your Jeep steering shaft.

What Does a Jeep Steering Shaft Do?
The steering shaft in your vehicle plays an integral part in its overall performance. Essentially the shaft is a component that is connected to the steering system of the Jeep. It plays the pivotal role of connecting the steering system to the steering wheel and other associated parts. A faulty steering system, meanwhile, can disrupt your vehicle's performance and increase the odds of an accident occurring while you are attempting to make the most of an off-road experience.
