Recently, the CV joint in the front drive shaft of my Grand Cherokee destroyed itself. I find that, in fact, there are two types used in this car, one like mine with a CV joint, and one with a U joint at both ends. Is there any reason I can't replace mine with a U joint type if I change the bracket on the differential?

'95 with the 318 V8. It really looks like it will fit. Can't find any like mine at the junkyards, and new ones run about $400+. We only use the car when we need something big.

I did this the only problem which can be serious is the this 249 transfer case (the one you have) locks the truck in park using the front wheels and drive shaft. This means when you park on a hill without the front drive shaft on, the vehicle will slowly (very slowly) roll down hill unless you APPLY THE PARKING BRAKE everytime you put the truck in park. You will not be able to see the truck roll, but after 5 minutes the truck will have moved 3 or 4 feet.. I have experienced this myself....

Hi. My drivetrain works normal for short drives around town, but after longer drives on highway, the front differential starts sticking so that sharper turns like pulling into a driveway, causes the front end to jump around. It's a 93 grand, with fulltime 4 wheel. Does this sound like a mechanical failure, or just the need for a better lube. Haynes book covers nothing on drivetrain. Any good books out there on troubleshooting and repair for these things?

We recently bought a 1985 Jeep Cherokee in good shape except the engine. We had a new engine put in plus all the hard ware that goes with it,'water pump, fuel pump ect...; $2,300.00 worth of work.
Now we have a new problem. The lever for Hi & Low drive is locked in the Nutural position and the Jeep won't move. You can hear the tranny kick in when it is put into drive or reverse and hear it whine. Somtimes if you race the engine really hard in drive or reverse it will kick into gear, but as soon as you change the gear or put it into Park, it won;t go back into gear again.
If anone has had a similar problem or knows of a solution please let me know. We are told the problem is in the transfer case but no one seems to know how to fix it.
Thanks so much,
