hey all,
just picked up a 1987 jeep cherokee laredo in mint condition with a bent rear axle. the actually axle housing is bent not just the shaft. i was wondering if anyone has any ideas. can i put a axle out of a ford ranger in it or does it have to be a cherokee. i need an axle and i dont want to pay 250 for one out of a junk yard.

whats the gear ratio in the axle ? how wide is it ? what type of axle is it ? what angle is the bases for the springs welded on ? what size yoke is on it ? what size are the brake lines ?

thats pretty much all you need to find out , if they are the same then you should be good.

For ease of install, one from another Cherokee will be the better choice. The Ford Ranger is more narrow and the perches are not the same. And most likely, it's nothing better than what you've got.

If you want cheap then there is always someone selling the D35s cheap.
Also look for the 8.25 as they are also fairly cheap and are a better axle than the D35. Look for ones out of any XJ and they will bolt right up.
I sold a D35 non C-clip for $75 last year and I have seen them go for $50.
You need to also find one that has the same gear ratio as your front if you have 4WD so you do not have to pay for regearing.
