Help with 8.8 conversion

Does anybody have or know where you can get the measurements for the placement of the spring perches on 8.8 explorer rear end would be much easier if I can weld it all up and paint without havering to mock it up and take it apart to do so and also the best angle with a 4 inch lift

There is info on the net, I googled it a few years ago when I was going to do the swap, drawings for perch placment and how to set your pinion angle to do exacly what you want to do,build the axle and bolt it in. Maybe Jedi I think I saved it, I have to finish my brake job, when I'm done I'll see if I can find it!

You'll need to mock it up underneath to get the pinion angle just right.

Trust me guys, its totally worth it to do it right.
