well dropped off my jeep , and told them what i read here , so the first thing they did was take the front shaft out , it looked just like the one in the pick here , the part will be in tommorow and i will be back in business, if it wasnt for this site it would have taken more time and money , so i thank you for this
I had a problem with my commander with a clunking sound, it was alarming for sure, I took it to the dealer and they narrowed it down to the front drive shaft and that it needed to be replaced. Unfortunately nationwide there were no front drive shafts available through jeep and there were like 40 back ordered. I ended up getting a salvage drive shaft and had it installed. Everything seemed fine just driving around town but when I later got on the highways going over 65 mph I had moderate vibration and even more as I let off the gas. After reading some threads here about someone having an out of balance drive shaft I had this one balanced at the shop I got the drive shaft from and the problem immediately went away. Hope this helps someone.
