    So which one failed, the stock ball joint or the Dynatrac

    Ugh... I've got 3,500 miles on my '13 and suppose I should take a look before April 14th... MOAB time. Still stock suspension, but... um... yeah.

    Keep an eye on your u joints, my friend blew his out on his 2013 rubicon the other weekend with only 6500 miles on his. He runs a 3.5 lift and 35 Duratracks.
    Was in loose wet snow not even got far onto the trail!!!

    Can anyone chime in as to what type of grease should be used on the ball joints? I think I have some heavy duty wheel bearing grease I was using on the control arms. Does it matter?

    Thank you for this write up. I've been weighing out whether to do this myself. The more I become familiar with the process, the more I think I can do it. I'll let you know how it turned out. Thanks again

    Axle wonít go back in on passenger side.

    I’m replacing my ball joints. I started on the passenger side. After replacing the ball joints I started the reassembly process. I cleaned up my axle shaft, greased the splines, installed the 2 plastic guide rings and tried to put the shaft back. It only goes in about half way and there is resistance. I feel it pass what seems to be the seal , but beyond that it won’t go any further.has anyone come across this type of thing

    Looks like you have a rubicon. Youíre putting the correct side in I assume. Doesnít look like itís even far enough in to reach the splines.

    You made sure there were no other plastic guide rings in the tube? Sometimes there can be a one, sometimes there can be a few.

    Other than what the others have mentioned, are you kind of tilting the shaft up a bit to make sure the splines clear the seal? Iíve left my guides in place the two times Iíve pulled mine but still had to wiggle the shaft up and down a bit to get them to seat.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
