    Default broke tail shaft cone

    what would be the best bet. go sye or just replace the tailshaft cone? u joint broke at the pinion yoke and caused the driveshaft to bounce around in there, and some how the tailshaft cone broke in the process. while inspecting the slip yoke i noticed it looked like it was at a very step angle, cause you could see it was worn on the drive shaft.

    If it breaks, it needed to be upgraded anyway.

    Like everyone is saying SYE & CV DS. Get a front DS from another XJ or if you have a lot of lift, one from a 93ish ZJ w/a V8, or if you have a stupid amount of lift, I THINK the YJ''s and TJ's front DSs are CVs and are longer.
