CV Axle shafts to U-Joins shafts

Have the 249 T-case in a 1998 ZJ.

The CV boots are shot and I need to do some repair/replacement. Any drawback to just pulling a set of U-Joint axle shafts from the junkyard and tossing them in there?

Re: CV Axle shafts to U-Joins shafts

I've seen guys talk about that being the first upgrade they have done. I've also seen where guys go from U-joint type shafts to the CV's for daily drivers.

I don't see any reason it can't be done. I think the CV's would be smoother with the 249 case when turning.

Re: CV Axle shafts to U-Joins shafts

I found replacement CV shafts in Rockauto for about $100 total shipped. Gonna just do that. I also read that the 249 doesn’t like u-joints.
