Default Wanted: Dana 35 C-Clip spiders (pictures why).

I finally found the source of my rear end rattle.


Does anybody have a set (or even the single c-clip side spider)? It is a stock dana 35 c-clip axle from a 1994 YJ with 3.73 gearing.

3.07 won't work...I am pretty sure those are non-c-clip axles.

Somebody has to have a set from doing a locker install.

Bueller? Bueller?

It happens when there are to many little floating pieces where there shouldn't be any :tonka:

I may be mistaken, but I didn't think the gearing mattered for the spider gears, just the R&P. THought it only made a difference on the c-clip or not.

There were no floating pieces...that is the only spider gear with any problems...all the other spider gears are in perfect shape...more like a manufacturing defect. It is rather strange. In the 3 years I have owned my Jeep I have changed the rear differential oil 5 times...and that is without much hard 4-wheeling...so it has been well taken care of.

The gearing doesn't matter but it is an indication of what year the Jeep is which tells me if they are c-clip or not. 3.07 gearing, to me, indicates a Jeep prior to 1993/4 which means non c-clip. I have to have the recess in the spider gear to allow for the c-clip. Non c-clip=no recess=no worky for me.

I might have another set at the house from some given to MudnYJ when he trashed his. Will look when I get to the house this evening.

Thanks so much fr3dB3ar and Icemanii. I am driving on pins and needles...very cautiously (and only to and from work) until I can get that spider replaced.

Upon doing some more research it seems that some TJ Dana 35s were also 3.07 geared...no idea if they were C-clip style or not. Greenmeanie's axle is out of a 1990 YJ tho.

Every time something goes wrong with my Jeep I learn lots...cool...and not so cool...at the same time.

My 3.07 Dana 35 in my 1992 YJ has C-clips. I have side and spider gears for a D35 but you are a little ways away.

I really wanna help you out. I've got a set but I need them for a couple more weeks. There yours for free, except shipping please (about $9.00). But I'll need them until after the weekend of the 21st. I've snapped these before and gotten new ones for my '90 YJ out of a TJ and they slipped right in. Any C-clip D35 should work for you. So you can look as far back as 90 YJ's but probably even into the late 80's for your spider gears.

I'm taking the jeep out on the 21st, don't wanna get stranded again.

p.s. all also look into the other sites that I'm on out here in CA to see if I can scrounge some up for ya.

Okay, I've got a guy that'll give me a whole Dana 35 rear axle... one axle is broken though, but you've probably already got spares for the trail (it is a Dana 35 after all). I'll arrange pick up and tear it down a.s.a.p. if you're still in need.

Lemme know.

VM, looked at the gears we have and they are not c-clip style, sorry. I thought I had posted that sooner but didn't, appologize for the delay. Good luck.

Thanks for looking Icemanii.

Chimp-O...what year Jeep is the Dana 35 from? I only ask because I think something changed in the carrier and spider gears mid 1993...along with the gearing (went from 3.07 to 3.73). Looking at part numbers for the spiders...they are different for 1993/4 & up and 1987-1993. I'll PM you my number. Thanks so much for the help. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. Oh...and I have no problem sending you the cash for the parts and shipping. Thanks man!

I really don't think gear ratio has anything to do with it. I have a used set. Also, (from being a Auto Tech), I've seen spiders WAAAAY worse, usually from spinning one tire or the other excessively w/ an open diff. Just turning normally won't cause a problem. I can part w/ them Mike...
