I am upgrading all the yokes on my Jeep to the u-bolt style. I have got the new ones for the transfer case, but they didn't come with
the little metal sheild like the old ones did. So I figured that I would just use the old ones on the new yoke. I got the old ones off
no problem, but when I went to install them on the new yoke, it wouldn't work. This is because the new yoke already has another sleave
or something there. Is this due to the fact that the stock yokes were the strap and bolt style, and the new ones are u-bolt? I would
really like to have the sheild so that it gives some protection to the yoke seals. Help!

Re: dana 300

Good advice, get rid of them. I used to have a similar problem with the front discs on the Scrambler, rocks would get stuck between the "dust shield" and the rotor, wearing a spot in the rotor and making an awful squeal. I finally, at the advice of others, canned the dust shield and have been happier since. It's a lot easier to wash the dirt out of the area now. All the shield did was trap the dirt in. Similar rusults regarding shock boots.

So I should ditch the so called dust sheilds? I already did the front brakes, and did not put that shield back on. Do you guys think this is a god idea or not?? I assume all the shelds are there for a reason, are you sure I should do away with them?
