I have a 97 cherokee, I think the rear axle is a 8.25. It has a 27 spline pinion yoke. But everything I can find for 97 is 29 spline. Also the steering wheel is not the same as the 97. Was there some vehicles marked 97 but still had 96 stuff? If anyone has any info I'd appreciate it

96-97 was a bastard year. it was a change over so some things are new and some things are old, The spline are not on the pinion yoke. there are on the axles. ALL 97 have 29 spline shafts. SOME 96 had 29 spline. My 96 was built in May of 96 and is 27 spline. they used up all the 27 spline in 96 then started installing the 29 spline.
