Question:

i broke the cv axle in my 99 jeep cherokee?

its a regular cherokee NOT a grand cherokee and i was trying to figure out what years i could pull 1 off of at the junk yard that would still work. i know that alot of parts from 84-01 will fit it but idk about the cv. thanks

Answer:

get a new cv axle . they are about 65 bucks and are new. it took me just about 1 hour to change one out on my 94 grand cherokee limited 4x4. not hard at all. don't waste your time getting one at a junkyard. i didn't and as soon as i changed it i went rock crawling.

5 hours is a reasonable estimate for replacing both cv axles. Dealerships and some shops do labor estimates from a book that is based on factory times using the correct tools and procedures. A mechanic that is experienced in changing them and there are no problems like rusted/stripped bolts might do it quicker. A mechanic that hasn't done them as often or has problems with rust etc may take longer That is why it is called an estimate.

T-bus, you can buy a new one for 69.00, why risk buying a corroded one from the junk yard. If you do take someones opinion here, are they telling you the truth ? You will find out when it comes time to install this.

your discs that are inside your transmission are screwed. you may need a new transmission. i am going through the same thing right now.

Your transmission needs an overhaul, no doubt about it.
