Re: yj yoke seal leak
could be a couple of things. your shaft could be out of balance and distorting the seal. the splines on the slip yoke could be out of tolerance causing a wobble or you could have a burr on the yoke itself. there is also a bushing on the inside of the tail cone, that could be out of tolerance too. any manual tranny shop should be able to replace that bushing when i did my sye kit, i kept my old shaft, and my old tail cone.
the slip yoke of the shaft will most likely have surface rust on it, but the cone is still in good shape. the shaft has been in storage for the last 4 years. they arent doing me any good laying around taking up space in storage. it wouldnt hurt my feelings to get rid of them. i cant say as to the material condition of the shaft, but when i took it off, it was less than 1 year old. i would have to dig it up and take a look at it. but take a look at the few things i mentioned before, and come to a determination. if you know of anyone who would like a spare stock driveshaft, i have one. its not a formal sale announcement, but atleast ive put the word out.
