*** 8.8 Consolidation thread ***

I think it's high time to gather up all the 8.8 stuff and put it in one place, same as we did with the track bars.

Post any links or information here that should be included and eventually I'll get it organized.

thx

Not sure if it's worth anything in current form, but there's some good ideas brewing in my thread abour the parking brake system on an 8.8... CLICK HERE.

There's also a few good links floating around in that thread for other 8.8 brake solutions and kits.

May or may not help someone. I dont have a ton of pics from start to finish, but may be some brake line ideas for 8.8 SOA application.

If you want to delete the ABS Sensor the Freeze plug that fits in the hole is Dorman Part # 555-013

Or just cut the heads off some appropriate sized carriage bolts and weld them in the holes.

That's another option but the freeze plugs are .39 at oreillys I am pretty sure it cost less then a stainless carriage bolt

No need for stainless, paint works.

I actually cut out a plate and installed a tube fitting for the vent line and welded up the one on the axle tube.
