The end of the driveshaft which broke was not just having a u-joint. It was having a ball joint as well and I checked that part up in the spare part market in Sharjah, they said that they dont keep the mopar part in stock. Am i still missing something?
@Barry i did check it like you said initially and i felt it at the stage there was play in the shaft. However when it was checked at the garage the u joints (near the front differential) where in good condition. The mistake that was done was that I should have taken the entire shaft down and checked it thoroughly.
Am so glad that it has not been the differential and was just the front drive shaft which costed me far less to replace.
Thanks Barry 😁
Just an update on the OP, in my last drive the noise was just getting worse and after we exited, i felt a heavy vibration at the speed of 20 - 30 km / h. Had to winch it to the garage, and when inspected it turned out to be the front drive shaft joint at the transmission end and not at the front differential end.
Got a clean front drive shaft from the scrap yard and had it replaced. The entire noise has disappeared. 😄
Will be giving the car a good test during the next weekend drive as I finally have a mental peace knowing that the car is ready to be pushed to the limit
