The TeraFlex JK: Rzeppa High-Angle Factory Replacement CV Joint Kit replaces a worn or damaged factory Rzeppa CV joint and driveshaft without resorting to an expensive aftermarket U-joint upgrade.

Allows angles up to 15 degrees.

The high-angle CV housing reduces boot failure associated with 3” or more lift.

The included low-friction grease is engineered specifically for the high RPM needs of the JK Rzeppa CV joint and features high-viscosity surface bonding characteristics necessary to properly adhere the grease to all moving surfaces.

Fits:

• JK Wrangler (2-door)

• JKU Wrangler Unlimited (4-door)

Includes:

• CV joint assembly

• High-angle CV housing cap and boot

• Bolt flanges

• Socket head bolts

• 6mm Allen wrench

• Low-friction CV grease

Note(s):

• Proper grease packing is crucial for joint longevity. Grease MUST be packed thoroughly and liberally to the entire CV assembly. Be generous and use all grease provided.Improperly packing the bearings w/out enough grease will result in bearing failure.

I dont believe it took this long for a high angle Rzzepa joint to be made. Major props to TF for offering this to JK owners. The OEM rzzepa joint from my understanding is very strong. A lifted JK + added articulation almost guarantees failure. This new joint should help prolong its life. Install was messy but fairly easy. Dennis did a great job in the video. Thank you TERAFLEX.

I bought this a month or so ago and since then used it a few times with some pretty hard wheeling both rock and snow. This is a great product that saved me from buying a more expensive driveline. It has withstood the challenge so far and the installation video makes it super easy to install. It took me only an hour and half and I was not using power tools.

After enduring the incessant clicking of the factory joint after my lift for 2 years, I purchased and installed the TF Rzeppa replacement kit last fall. Install was indeed messy but fairly quick and easy with the right tools and help. Invest in some band crimpers to keep the new joint sealed and free from debris. After three months of snow, mud and trails, the new high angle joint is smooth and quiet which is now somewhat out of place with the rest of the ride. Great product TF.

The high angle from a 3 inch lift destroyed the boot on the front drive shaft OEM CV joint. I discovered that telltale sign of grease flung around the underside of my Jeep and a contaminated and failing OEM CV joint. I was driving on borrowed time. Installing the TeraFlex High-Angle CV Joint Kit, was easy can can be accomplished in a couple of hours. I would recommend investing in a CV joint boot banding tool. They are inexpensive and will give you a better seal between the boot and the drive shaft, then if you use pliers.. And use all the grease like they say in the instructions. Packing the CV joint with grease took the most time of the whole job. Not many miles since install, so only time will tell if this CV joint lives up to the promise.
