In the photo of the u-joint-style axle shaft, I cannot see a groove for a snap-ring (like Spicer). To clarify, does it have a snap-ring groove? If not, is it not needed?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, these do have a snap ring groove on the end.

Hi - I have a D27A in a 1966. The long side of the front axle has a Spicer universal joint. Is it possible to replace the Universal Joint, and if so what is the part #? Thanks.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:

I will need both driver and passenger side front axle shaft assemblies.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
909459 is the driver side, like you see here. And 909460 is the passenger side: https://www.kaiserwillys.com/front-axle-shaft-assembly-for-passenger-side-rh-fits-41-71-cj-mb-gpw-m38-m38-a1-with-dana-25 Thanks!
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
909460 would be the part number for the passenger side.
Willys Tech:
The other part number is 909460. Yes, these come complete with fittings for grease.

I have m38a1 on the original Front Axle Shaft Assembly for Drivers Side inst staying straight its wanting to fall like in the picture, is that normal ? if its not can just the u joint be replace or dose the whole assembly have to.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Not sure what you mean by 'fall' exactly. Please call and ask for Mike M. We can try to help.

I see axle shaft assemblies for the Dana 25, but not for my 27. Since the list does not state that they fit the 27, shall I assume that they are different? If this is true, do you have them for L and R sides?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
If you are fine spline, please email mike@kaiserwillys.com or call me toll free. I can help out.

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?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Chances are they are very worn if they are the orignals. I would inspect and rebuild if necessary.

Hi, how much does it weights?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Approx 15 pounds boxed.

I have a Ford GPW made in 1942 earlier serial #, will the new universal joint style axle replace the older style with threaded ends.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes this will replace the original axle shafts.

Do the ujoints in these have zerks for grease?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, they do. But they are pregreased from the factory.

What is the length of this shaft?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Overall length 35"

Is this a 10 spline axle and will it fit a 47' CJ2A?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, this is a 10 spline and is for all the Willys Jeep's listed above.

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.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please give us a call toll free and we can go over it with you. 888.648.4923. Thanks!
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
We typically use 90 weight non-synthetic. Fill till it comes out the fill hole on the side and re-plug. Thanks!
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
We use 90 weight non-synthetic.
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
We typically use 90 weight gear oil.

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.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
We typically fill with 90 weight gear oil. You will want to do this. That spindle bushing is the only support per se.
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
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.
WIllys Jeep Parts Tech:
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.

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!

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please give us a call toll free and we can go over it. 888-6484923. Thanks!
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
We can help out with a lot of this. Please call us toll free and we can go over.
Willys Tech:
We can get you the carrier, spider gears, ring & pinion ect no problem. Please call us toll free.

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.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, you could replace the joint at a later time with the 909459 & 909460 if needed.
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
You can replace the joints as needed. Give us a call toll free and we can get you set up.
Willys Tech:
You can do just one side if you want. We also sell the rezeppea style as well.

With this joints do you still have to fill the knuckle with oil?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, we use 90 weight.
Willys Tech:
Yes, I do recommend it.

Just woundering if I can replace one axle. the new ones have the universal joint type pivit, while the old existing one that I won't change out will still have the older type joint. My jeep is a 1953 cj-3b. Thanks Jim

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, we do have people replace just one. But I usually recommend doing it in pairs.
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
We have customers that do it all the time. We recommend running the same in each side.
Willys Tech:
Yes you can replace just one side no problem.

will this shaft directly replace the bendix type universal joint without any modifications

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
You may have to take a bit off the bushing at the end of your axle housing tube for clearance on some models.
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
You may have to take a bit off of the bronze bushing at the end of your axle housing tube for clearance.
Willys Tech:
Yes, that is correct. They just slide in.
