Hey boys - an interesting bit of nonsense for we Grand Chero steerers.
We explored the wg ****** wj thing in the other thread and as Billsta correctly points out - the WG tag is only so that we can tell DC the model number when we need parts for our WJ's.
Got this flat in rhf tyre - yes, in the rain of course - yanked (pun intended) the flat off to put the spare on and noticed the stickers on the shockie announcing "wJ".......
So on our WJ plated but WG stamped cars we have to tell DC that we've got a Wg so they can give us the correct WJ part...... :shock:
hmmmm..... back to the swimming pool.... :lol:
i was told there are a few diffrences between the to any idea what they are :?:

In a word - no!
We tried to establish what was going on in this thread:
(though it was off topic severley and all my doing) :)
i heard the front drive shafts changed from a cv back to a uni type and a few other small mods but who the hell knows

im pretty sure theres a TBS in the us to change the CV to uni's.
US spec WJ has external antenna
AUS WJ/G has side indicators, rear bar reflectors, integrate antennas, etc

"TBS" - is that a recall? :shock:
I'd love to exchange my CV's for proper uni's. I don't trust them - but I may be wrong....
i just found an old artical in november 2003 jp magazine about wj suspension the artical said that 01 and later wj use a front shaft with a uni and the double cardenel uni on the other but you need to fit a new yokes to the diff and transfercase :D

no TSB = Technical Service Bulletin. not a recall.
but the aussie boys dont do them for some reason....
01 & later?
we check Chrismal's front shaft and its a CV. i think its only in the US.
probably it was in jp magazine and we only get the left over crap on our cars here what front shaft do you run?

uni & double cardin

"no TSB = Technical Service Bulletin. not a recall.

Yep they do. If you have any driveline noises evident then the service fix is to replace the std CV front driveshaft with a UJ & DC shaft. Thought I had a major issue after the lift until I found this out & had it fixed under warranty.

David...... what was required to convince the dealer of this? Mine's making a vibration on hard acceleration away from the lights. Very smooth one up and going though.
Is this something that all dealers are likely to agree to without too much cajoling?

they never did it back in the days, havent tried since warrenty ran out.
