I've been quoted 120 to change a split front driveshaft gaitor on my 32, but moneys pretty tight at the moment, so i wondered how involving it is to change it myself.

Is it a bitch of a job? Whats involved roughly?

No one ever done this before? Could really do with doing it myself, as moneys well tight at the moment

Anyone with ANY input?

To do it properly you have to pull the shaft out, not that hard a job, drivers side is the worst as you have to pull the cover off the front diff to free the shaft from the centre.

I unbolted the bottom ball joint and the swaybar link to give me enough room to swing the stub around.. not that hard a job. All depends on what your capabilities are. There are a couple of how-to's areound, and the workshop manual is fairly extensive.

Thanks for the reply mate

It is the drivers side that needs doing! I do have the 32 manual. Does this cover what i need to do? I completely forgot i had it to be honest

Both my bloody motorshave a problem now. :runaway:

It is in there, but not the clearest. I am not sure where I found the writeup, may have been on here or sau..

I had to pull both my driveshafts. 2x cv's stuffed and 3x boots.. Not happy. Found the evidence when I went to bolt the new brakes on. At least it was real cheap to have the shafts reconned, cost me around au$300 from memory.

Cheers mate.

Both gaitors have gone on the driver side. I may attempt it. Dont know yet.

Miht just be easier to give it to RK to do it. First though, the Jeep needs sorting.

I'll have a search about. If you come across it, let me know where the guide is.

Thanks again for your replies mate
