Are you pulling the disk brakes from a ZJ? That's what I used a while back. Recently I went to the JY and pulled the E-brake cables from a ZJ even though everyone said they can't be used... They can't w/ the current XJ "mix box". I used the ZJ "mix box" and mounted it in the DS tunnel under the rear seat and it worked pretty well. Something to keep in mind and save from buying Liberty cables.

Here's a pointer on the hub seal change - 8.25 hub seal replacement
Now, to steal a little on the threat:
What lubricates the rear axle bearings? Is is grease or Gear oil?
