front transmission shaft
 
hi
i went to my jeep local dealer due to a noise on front axle , something like a wheel hub bearing (they were changed less than 20000km)
they performed some "test" then they told me it's the front axle shaft , they removed the front drive shaft by the way .
I was not trusting them , I went under the jeep and I've seen that the front transmission shaft was not aligned with some marking , one line on the transfer case side and on on the shaft side .

can it be due to this than i feel vibration at 90 km H ? is there a factory marking ? can it damage something if its not mounted in the "right place"?

I believe so. The shaft should be balanced by itself. Did you get a new driveshaft? Or did they reinstall your old one?

Sounds like you need to rotate it

I need to forget to turn it , there's another problem . the CV boot is cracked , on the transfer case side , and th grease gone out .
I've seen there are sevral kits to repair this , but are they the same between a wj and a wk ?

no they are different. the wj has solid axles while the wk has independent front suspension using CV shafts

Sorry probably I explained it wrong it's the axle going fron the tranfer case to the diff not the the small ones linked to the wheels hub
(front drive shaft)
On my WH it's looking the same as my friend's WJ , but i'm not sure i can use a wj repair kit

Anyone knows if the front drive shaft from wj and wk the same fron transfer case to front axle ? And is there any upgraded stronger version available?
