Fitting advice :- Please note these propshafts have heavy duty round flanges, when fitting make sure you clean up the diff and gearbox flange faces as you may have taken a square type flange off and the new round flange does not want to sit on top of dirt or rust. The Slider goes to your transfer box flanges, for a Double Cardan prop the DC end goes to the front transfer box flange. You must ensure all UJs and the slider are fully greased on fitment and are regularly greased during use. We Grease all UJ’s and sliders here during final checks but sliders can not be filled with grease until a prop is fitted, you will need to fill the slider with grease.
This propshaft has 3 fully greaseable UJs, and the slider is also greaseable on these.
