The Dana 35c is the axle used in all YJs (Wrangler) from '87-'95 and it is the standard axle in the TJ (Wrangler), ZJ (Grand Cherokee), MJ (Comanche), and XJ (Cherokee). We get it. The Jeep life is a crazy life, and there is no telling where you next adventure may take you. While Jeeps are designed to hit the road hard and fast, weak factory parts or old aftermarket parts may begin to break down on you after hitting one too many ridges. One part that is especially susceptible to wear and tear is the rear axle. It's not uncommon for jeepers to come to 4WheelParts.com looking for a replacement Jeep KJ rear axle that is more durable and dependable than their last one. If you're in need of Jeep axle parts that won't shutter at the first sight of a dune, you're in the right place.
Signs of a Failing Axle Shaft
Without an axle, your rig's wheels wouldn't be able to spin, as they wouldn't have the brain to tell them to do so. The axle is the line of communication between your vehicle's command center and the differential to the wheels. When you put the pedal to the metal, the transmission says go, and that's just what your axle does: it goes. However, because the axle is the direct link between your vehicle's power station and the wheels, it's constantly put under a lot of stress, so it makes sense that over time, it will require replacement. But when, you might ask, is a replacement necessary? Good question.
The symptoms of a failing axle are fairly obvious. First, you might notice some grease smudging up your tires along the inside edge. This is due to a torn boot that leaks grease. Next, you may notice that your rig isn't growling like normal. Instead, it's clunking and clanking like a beat up old granny mobile. Finally, when your axle is in really bad shape, your rig will start to shake and vibrate as you drive. Not only will this decrease the joy of your ride, but it's also a safety hazard.
