Best Answer

A 2001 Jeep wrangler (TJ or Limited model) does not have a CV (Central Velocity) joint. Both front and rear axle assemblies are "straight" axles; the rear has no axle joint and the front uses a standard universal (u-joint) with caps and needles (both Dana 30 and Dana 44)

To replace the front driveshaft u-joint: you would need to remove the wheel and hub assembly and slide out the driveshaft through the knuckle. The u-joint is retained by press fitted caps and/or C clips and can be changed with the aid of a vise, hammer, punch or press.

I visual inspection can be done to see any play in the front shaft prior to removal-the typically are very easy to diagnose-no movement within the joint is permissible (wiggle with small crow bar or large screwdriver) with wheel turned exposing the u-joint within the knuckle assembly...there may be some end to end play within the shaft movement (and up and down) but no play should be found within the joint itself.
