G2 Rear Axle Kits are made from high tensile alloy steels. These axles are forged and heat-treated for maximum strength. Big Spline options allow you to take advantage of even more added strength, gained from the larger diameter of the shafts. The larger diameter enables the shafts to withstand much higher torsional loads than the stock diameter. With either option, you can be assured that the weakest point of your driveline will not be your axle shafts.
Had one of my factory rear axle shaft bend at the flange and replaced with a G2. It has handled the abuse I put it through. Great product!

5.0Great kit all the best components.
This is a great kit. Hands down all the best hard wear and easy to install with the Dana 44 housing. Take EXTRA notice when taking old axles out that you use the correct plate when assembling new axles! The ones provided in the kit my not be what you need and will then need to swap over from the old axles.

I really enjoyed this kit. Much more solid than oem. Only too small beefs. One, no instructions - which you can google dana 44 rear axle replacement to find directions easily. I used Dana's guide. Two, the wheel studs are a 1/4" shorter than oem studs. I was able to order replacements made by Allow USA, 99STUD2 1/2" dia. 20 pitch 2" length, but it would have been nice to have been warned ahead of time. Steel wheels would have been ok, but my alloys - Pro Comps - are a good 1/2" thick leaving 1/4" of thread for the lug nuts.
Would order again!
I have a 1977 cj7 with an amc 20 narrow Track. I installed the new g2 one piece axles, however, when fully installed, they are binding. What do I have to do to fix this?

When they are first installed they will be very tight. If you can turn them by hand or with a short pry bar in the studs you will be ok. If they are so tight that they won't turn at all the thrust block my be cocked in the carrier. Sometimes if the thrust block tilts it will put a lot of load on the axles. The best bet would be to call in so they can go over more details since there are so many different things it could be.

I see in the Q/A I need to order Retainer Plates if not using Factory. Also need Tone Rings for ABS - but what about the Bearing Pressed on Retainer rings?
stk-snd from Bay City, Mi on
You can use the retaining ring off your old axles along with the tone ring. Or you can buy new and have it pressed together before you take you Jeep apart.
The kit comes with the bearing and press ring, seals and studs.
