Questions & Answers
Questions: I will be replacing my Rzeppa style axles with the Spicer type that you offer and I have two questions. One how does one install lockout hubs when there is a snap ring at the end of the axle, and if you leave the snap ring off will the end play in the axle be OK? Two, I see that the Spicer joint is pre-greasable before it is assembled, but how can it be greased again when it is in a closed knuckle application? Thank you.

Typically if you have the snap ring style axle shaft the length wont cause any problems. It just bolts up. The spicer style has a grease fitting that usually is just a one time grease.

Questions: when I removed the passenger side front axle from a 53 cj-3a the balls fell out of the joint. is this normal or is the joint worn out?
Question By: Dave Blasingame on Jan 5 2015 12:00 AM
Sounds like you have worn balls on the joint. If you still have all the parts you could put them back together but they probably need to be replaced.

Questions: Switching to these Axle Shaft will that eliminate the need to grease inside the front hub?

You would still want to grease it just to make sure it is all lubricated but yes this is a spicer style joint that can be pregreased.

Questions: I understand these replace the RZeppa but I don't see the threaded end that the RZeppa has. Is/are there additional parts needed?
Question By: Rick on Oct 22 2013 12:00 AM
It comes with a snap ring to convert you over. Only really early ones were threaded.

Questions: Are all '46 CJ-2A front axles Dana 25's ? Seems to me that when I did the rebuild (14 years ago) that mine was a Spicer 21 with a Bendex joint. Am I correct or fuzzy in the brain ?
Question By: Jim on Mar 29 2013 12:00 AM
Yes all CJ-2A's or any 4wd Willys thru 65 were Dana 25. Starting the the 60's some CJ-5's had a Dana 27 option.

Questions: Does anything have to be changed or adjusted when replacing the bendix style with this?

Sometimes you have to take out the bushing at the end of your axle housing tube for clearance. Other than that you are all set to slide in.
