Got the diffs back, did not get them in before I put 600 miles on the Eagle this weekend. Thats ok, one last hurah for the 2.35 gearing.

How does that gear mesh look?   Thats form the shop and Im not sure if I should spend the time to correct it or if its fine the way it is.

What do you guys think?

makes me more nervous about the front. He said he got it to a point where he was "happy".

Installing a motor oil heat sink behind the front bumper for a little added and needed cooling today.  Cant wait to get these diffs in.

Thanks! I just bought mine and will be working on some minor issues over the winter months... putting in a radio and so forth... was ordered new with no factory radio installed.

Do you have any pics of yours to share?

The whole XJ exhaust can be used, but where the mount his onto the engine it may need to be heated and massaged to clear.

I have seen different halfshafts sizes on eagles, but smaller ones were on the 4cyl models. Is there any kind of lift on the front, i know you said alligned to spec.

That's weird.    Only question I can think of is: Is the axle the original style axle; or an aftermarket replacement axle with a different style inner CV joint??   Those aftermarket inner CV's don't allow nearly as much in/out "travel" as the original style joints.

Is there a special way to take the side view mirror off to tighten the screw that holds the housing on? I don't want to break anything trying to pry it off. Also is there a way to fix the mirror adjustment cables if they are sticking? Can I poor some wd40 on them?

4X4 and Driveline / Front Right axle coming apart
« Last post by xtcinoz on September 17, 2018, 05:14:57 PM »
The rt front 1/2 axle comes apart when I hit a dip in the road hard enough to pop the front end up and turn left at the same time. Like when you pull out of a driveway through the gutter and accelerate to cross traffic and turn left.  This has happened 6 times now. I have a 83 Eagle Wagon, all the bushings, bearings, etc. have been replaced. And the front end has been aligned to eagle specs, not concord. PLEASE HELP!!! I don't have much hair left to pull out.
Could the problem be shocks? It looks like the shaft was pulled apart.
