D-30 what U-joints

Gonna have new U-joints pressed on my TJ axle shafts...my memory is that there is an upgraded Spicer joint over the 297X or is the 297X the good one...

Re: D-30 what U-joints

Thanks.

Did you do a hub conversion on you old D30 (to get locking hubs)? if so what did you use?

Re: D-30 what U-joints

Will the 760 joint fit the older dana 30 shafts.

Re: D-30 what U-joints

The 760 is for full circle clip axles if memory serves and will only work if you have replaced your stock axle shafts with the full circle alloy ones...

Re: D-30 what U-joints

Oh yeah if your YJ front is still stock dana 30 (I saw in your info you have a 88?) then it will have the 260 joint unless you upgraded to TJ axle shafts or 95 model YJ axle shafts or some other 297 joint axle shaft....

Re: D-30 what U-joints

I'm in the proccess of eliminating the axle disco on my YJ d30 and will be putting in Warn TJ D30 shafts (got the shafts pretty cheap). But they need new U-joints, since I'll be spending the weekend at a machine shop, I'm gonna press on the new joints and get going with this swap.
