OK I'm pretty sure the pass. side outer axle shaft is bent on my 94 YJ D30. I've been told I can replace the entire pass. side assembly with the single piece from a TJ or XJ. Are there any other limitations on this? Is the only thing necessary a new seal and a blockout plate to replace the vaccum motor? Also incase I can't find a one piece, what vehicles had the correct 2 piece i need to do a direct replacement.

Yes, all you need is the seal and a block off plate.

If you can't locate a complete 1 piece shaft, with the exception of u-joint size, all the outer stub shafts were the same from the early years of XJs and YJs up through TJs. All of these same models will have the two piece shaft if they don't have the one piece shaft.

I am in the process of doing this, I have been told you have to do the locking hub upgrade or else it will always bind up. Any info on this sooner than later would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Neutral

What is "it" that will always bind up? And no, you don't have to do the locking hub upgrade if you're doing this swap on a Wrangler.

"it" would be the drive shaft. Thanks for your answer, I'm curious w/o the vacume lock, when will the front right axle lock up?

It's "locked" all the time, just like on every TJ and late model XJ ever produced right from the factory.

Yes. It will be "locked" like every TJ and late model XJ came right from the factory.
