A little help on the part then...having some trouble finding the exact one.
Jeep Liberty Front Intermediate Shaft Dana 30A 02 07 | eBay
bought one 2 months ago from them. They are also a site sponsor but are no longer active on the board.
The guy doing APU is [email protected]
How do I get the old one out? I can't figure it out.
Ok guys I replaced mine a couple of months ago and now she's leaking right where the shaft goes into the housing. I am also getting terrible vibrations on the decline of a higher spot in the road. Why did it come or and how do I fix?
axle seal ... may have been nicked by the splines when installed .. or maybe it's just done it's duty. I have my original drivers side seal but the pass side failed last year.
Need more info on the vibes :shrug:
Can someone post a link where to order some good parts for this? I can't seem to find them online. Only thing I can find are Cardone.
NEVERMIND! Found remanned on Napa's site. Now I just need clarification. I found two different lengths...
23 5/8" - http://www.napaonline.com/Catalog/C...ft-Right-Front-Remfd/_/R-NMD958484_0264114941
22 3/4" - http://www.napaonline.com/Catalog/C...ft-Right-Front-Remfd/_/R-NMD958355_0172995201
So which is the right one? :shrug:
And where can I find the intermediate shaft?
Got my intermediate through the forum sponsor auto parts unlimited
Found it. Thank you. Now hoping to get the axle length question answered. It's VAGUELY answered in other posts. I believe the longer one is the correct size.
You want the shorter one of the two you've listed for the right side - the longer one is for the CRD (front diff is shifted to the left on the CRD to make room for the engine.) So you want the 22.75" one for the right. For the left side you want the one that is 24.5".
For the intermediate shaft...
This is the one I bought. Fit perfectly.
This is the intermediate shaft I got, but through an ebay vendor.

Hey guys! I just ordered up the parts for these and am getting ready to get it done. I have a couple of questions:
1) Will a slide hammer be necessary/help me get the hub out?
2) Is there an axle seal or anything that I should worry about? Should I get one to replace while I'm in there?
PS - I'm doing the passenger side.
I have pics of both (yep, passenger side) starting on this page.
I didn't use a slide hammer, just a 2-jaw puller as that's all I had on hand. I have a slide hammer now, but I'm not sure it's needed.
No axle seal for the hub assembly.
Thanks for that! Should help greatly. As far as the axle seal goes though, is there an axle seal between the CV axle and the tube?
PS - I was gonna say I might swap out the hub while I'm in there as preventative maintenance but DANG are they not cheap.
No there isn't. The axle cv hub is connected (splined) to the intermediate shaft, but there is a seal inside the tube sealing against the intermediate shaft. If you're not removing/replacing the intermediate shaft, and the seal isn't leaking, I'd leave well enough alone and not open another can o worms.
As far as the wheel bearing hub, Timken brand at rockauto is $140.89. Is that what you're considering Dang expensive? Check your current one when the tire is off the ground and still on the Jeep. Grab the tire top and bottom and try to rock it. If the bearing is bad, you'll feel the play.
Yeah I'm replacing the intermediate shaft as well (kinda a given with these things, right?)
I might order up that seal just to have it on stand by in case it gets messed up. If not, I'll leave it.
I'm 23 and still paying college loans. I need every $140.89 that I can get. :emotions34:
When I replaced my intermediate shaft, I didn't bother with the seal. It wasn't leaking before, and isn't after.
If rocking the wheel shows no deflection, and it spins smoothly, then don't worry about it. Save the money for more important stuff.
Just to throw this out as well- when I went to pull my CV shaft on the drivers side - it would not come out. I ended up getting a BFH and finally with a good solid pop it came out. Unfortunately- the reason it wasn't coming out was the C clip inside that attaches in the groove in the splines, was somehow caught and rotating it did not realign it. When I finally popped it out, the c clip broke in two- only one piece coming out with the CV shaft. After some thought on whether or not to pull the diff apart to search for the missing half of the c clip- I decided to put my magnet on a stick inside the diff through the axle hole to see if I could fish it out. Lo and behold out came the other half of the c clip. Appears from EVERYWHERE this never happens, but if it does - just get a magnet in there!
So for replacing the passenger side cv and intermediate shaft, is there a seal on that end of the diff that needs to be replaced? Or all the seals in the intermediate shaft and CV? Is the intermediate shaft held in with snap rings?
