Front yoke boot
« on: October 02, 2018, 08:33:47 AM »

I needed to get a new front driveline, but what I got did not have the rubber boot. The rubber boot on the old one had failed which is why I needed a new front drive line. Dirt, grime, etc. made it rattle.
Searched the web and did not find anything Samurai specific.
Does anyone know what boot will fit stock Samurai drive lines?

What made the driveshaft rattle was not dirt and grime it was a lift and to much spline showing. This of course is just a guess but here is some basic info on samurai splines driveshafts. The females get greased way to much and end up being less travel before bottoming out. Dig the crap out of the female with a long screw driver and lightly grease. At rest (boot not on) you should see 1 of spline. No more no less. If your using spacers you probably have a loft so make sure the cap knuckles are not banging into each other thing the driveshaft yokes.


Most often the lifts cause to much pull out and this wallows out the female splines.

The boot disintegrated and I assume dirt and debris got in there and boogered it up.

It is lifted (SPOA) and has spacers. I will check if there are any clearance problems. Thanks for the info.
