Cv Joints Front Axle

WJs and ZJs have CV joints in the front axleshafts, not U-joints like XJs and TJs. It's a real pain because the boots can crack or get torn, allowing water, debris, and road salt to ruin the CV. We ordered full replacement CV and shaft assemblies as well as new unit bearings. Unlike a lot of the cheap overseas stuff we've encountered, the Crown shafts were way nice, with a black-oxide protective coating and quality machining and workmanship.
