Clarky is that the one you replaced a couple of years ago. How many ks did it do? I hope CV860 has the right number of splines as there seems to have some talk a couple of years ago wether these fit or not.Maybe the the cv would last longer if taken off cleaned and repacked with new grease.I might give it a go .

Yes, approximately 30,000km ago.
When I removed it I found the bolts were loose, one was a quarter of an inch out.
Probably from the corrugations on some of the outback tracks. I Should be more observant.

That happened on my one , after some 'mechanic' removed and refitted the front propeller shaft. Did not follow the simple instructions on tighting the bolts.

Developed a very bad vibration.

Hope it all works out OK

The bad news
Jeep & van still in Cobar

The good news
Dubbo Diff & drive line fixed the shaft for $300
We now know the part that fits is CV-861

The terrible news
I have to drive the rental car back to Cobar tomorrow (8hours) with the repaired shaft, fix the jeep then drive home again.
By the time I do all of this Jambo will be over & I miss another one

I think the guys ordering these CVs from the US on Ebay etc should check carefully that they are ordering the correct one the CV861 has
28.00x25 splines
100millx86mill size
One US supplier states one size fits all GC for last 13 years !!
Any idea what torque figures for the bolts that came loose.?

108Nm (80 ft. lbs.)

The drive line guys said the same uni for WJ as well so 13 years sounds right.

They said the new Ford Ranger has the same issue, only lasting a couple of months in the around Dubbo.

They can make up a custom shaft fir me for about $800 with UNI's so this is on my list (& the wife's) know.
