Questions & Answers
Questions: I have a 1955 CJ-5. I am rebuilding the front knuckles. It has the Bendix style U joints. When I pulled the spindle off the outer axle came with it and the balls fell out. Does this mean it’s worn out or do I just need to reassemble it and reinstall?
Question By: Mark McDonnell on Nov 27 2018 11:59 PM
Chances are they are very worn if they are the orignals. I would inspect and rebuild if necessary.

Questions: I still haven't found a definite on what is supposed to be in the Knuckles. As you put it I should fill it up to the fill plug, which is difficult with grease but that is what was in it. Can you tell me is it grease or oil in the knuckle? I am thinking it must be grease, the book says universal joint lube. Just seems funny to fill to a fill hole with grease. How do you know when you have it full? With oil it would run out the fill hole, with grease you could have it pumped all the way through the axle before it came out the fill hole? Thanks again for all your support, there are a lot of places to buy parts and I don't buy from you because you are the cheapest, I do it for the service and technical help. Thank you.

Questions: My new Universal joint axles came in today for my CJ2A thanks. Still struggling with lubrication and support. Am I to believe there is only support at the bushing in the spindle? Also how does this bushing get lubricated. I seen others ask this question and responses that the knuckle is still filled with Oil. Do you mean grease? and what would keep it from coming out the front of the spindle? I realize this is a lot to answer, but this is a huge investment to have something go wrong.
Question By: Elvis Hood on Nov 3 2016 5:42 PM
There is just the spindle bushing. Then your drive flange on the end of the hub has splines. It is a pre-lubed joint but you will still want to put knuckle lube in the knuckles up to the fill plug.
Answer By: WIllys Jeep Parts Tech on Nov 3 2016 11:01 AM
Yes, there is a spindle bushing and then you have the drive flange at the end. See diagram: https://www.kaiserwillys.com/diagram/cj-2a-diagrams/axle-diagrams-willys-cj-2a/dana-25-27-front-axle/dana-25-27-front-axle We use 90 weight non-synthetic.
Answer By: Admin on Apr 18 2017 2:14 PM
We typically fill with 90 weight gear oil. You will want to do this. That spindle bushing is the only support per se.

Questions: I recently purchased a 1946 CJ 2-A that is mostly complete and original. I pulled the front diff cover and found that right and left axles, gear case and crown gear are all missing. The pinion is there but that's about it. Do you have good used gear cases and both axles? Will also likely need a crown & pinion as well just need to figure out the ration in the rear diff so it matches. Great site and lots of helpful information - thanks!

Questions: With the new style can one replace just the spicer joint if needed at a later date or does it require a complete unit? I have the rezeppea style now and when pulled shaft out and bent completely down a ball fell out and i was able to put it back in does this indicate a badly worn joint. It seems to work ok after replacing ball.
Question By: d greenWith on Oct 5 2013 12:00 AM
You can do just one side if you want. We also sell the rezeppea style as well.

909460 would be the part number for the passenger side.
