My 8.8 Build: Young and Dumb
 
8.8 Swap completed August 2012

Hello all. I recently picked up an 8.8 to swap into my YJ.

I want to use this thread to document progress and contribute to the already plentiful amount of info out there about this swap.

I will post updates in this thread in new posts but also go back and update one of the first 4 posts so it's easy to read

WARNING: THIS BUILD WILL BE SLOW

So we'll start from the beginning, my rig:

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0413.jpg

'90 YJ with 2.5L/AX5/NP231J and 4.10 R&P ratio.

I want to eventually run 37's and the 8.8 seems a logical way to go.


After some searching I found an ad on craigslist.
It was a guy who finds quality 8.8 rear ends in junkyards and sells them to
people doing conversions for jeeps, hot rods, etc.

I swear, he must of had 20 of these things in his garage.

I opted for the 8.8 with disc brakes, 4.10 ratio (to match my D30 front), and an open carrier (I plan on running a selectable locker).

It came from a Ford Explorer 95-01, not sure on the exact year.

The axle came with everything I could possibly need:

-All the perches and mounts still attached to the axle
-The stock sway bar
-Calipers (for cores)
-Usable rotors (could use a quick cut)
-Stock E-brake shoes
-Spring plates
-All brake lines (hard/soft and the remnants of some cables)
-Yoke
-Factory ABS sensor

I got all that for $300. It was really a pretty good deal all things considered.

So we loaded up the axle in the back of our very own Ford Explorer and drove on home.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0392.jpg

Unloaded the axle and propped it up on the jack stands that night.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0403.jpg

I did a quick inspection on the R&P when we picked it up and when we got it home, I cracked it open for a closer inspection

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0452.jpg

Everything was immaculate. No chips or visible signs of wear. I was very pleased.


Now onto removing the all the factory hardware.

First the hard and soft brake lines and calipers

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0424.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0427.jpg

Onto the sway bar mounts

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0429.jpg

I cut a little too deep into the axle, oops

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0430.jpg

So I filled them in with my sorry excuse for a welder (and welding skill)

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0444.jpg

Ground it smooth (and you'll notice I removed the axle breather fitting)

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0432.jpg

Next step was basically the same but with the spring perches, no pictures of this.

After all the perches and mounts were off, I wanted to pull the shafts to put in new bearings and seals.
Also to clean up the caliper mounting bracket and dust cover.

To remove the shafts, I removed the bolt that holds the cross pin in place.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0478.jpg

Then removed the cross pin.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0479.jpg

With the cross pin removed, you can push the shafts into the carrier enough to pop off the C-clips.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0480.jpg

Shafts out

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0451.jpg

Now with the shafts removed, I was able to take off the caliper mounting bracket and dust cover

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0453.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0454.jpg

They come off in one piece but I later separated them.

Next step, removing the seals.
Pretty simple, just pried it out with a big screw driver

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0455.jpg

The bearings gave me a bit of trouble but I was able to get them out with some heat and a slide hammer

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0464.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0465.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0473.jpg

During this time I ordered my new bearings and seals

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0456.jpg

The next day I cleaned the inner axle tube with some brake clean and pressed (pounded) in the new B&S's using my bearing driver

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0483.jpg

Bearing in

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0484.jpg

Seal in

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0485.jpg


With the new B&S's installed I started to clean up the axle itself;

I started with the rust on the differential gasket surface:

Before

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0466.jpg

I used a 4.5" flap disc on my grinder

After

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0468.jpg

Next was just some random grinding really. I think It'll look much better this way

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0469.jpg

Smoothed out the factory plug welds, too ugly for my tastes.

I plan on welding the tubes as well before anyone freaks out about it.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0470.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0471.jpg

Overall just smoothing everything out.

You'll notice I removed the factory ABS sensor as well. I'll need to find a plug for this later.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0472.jpg

I went over most of the tubes, smoothing and getting off most of the grime and rust.
But you'll notice that I didn't sand down all the way to bare metal because I plan on painting the axle with chassis saver (like POR-15)
and it adheres better to rusted surfaces.


I ordered the chassis saver to paint the axle with today

I took advantage of this promo.
Ordered a Monstliner 1 gallon kit and got a free quart of chassis saver and free shipping! Unbeatable, thanks Magnet Man!


Today I also ordered the spring perches, shock tabs, and U-bolt plates.

I contacted Eddie (BESRK) at Ground Pounder Fab and we figured out what I needed. I'm very pleased so far, Eddie is a great guy to deal with. Thanks again!

JEEP_Nut1218 03-22-2012 08:22 PM

Continuing cleaning up the diff..

I ground down more of the plug welds and discovered something kind of odd..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0488.jpg

That dark spot you see is gear oil seeping out. It was hardly anything but it threw me off a bit.

Just to be safe I got out the welder and filled in a bit

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0490.jpg

Same thing on the other side

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0491.jpg

Here's after grinding down the welds.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0496.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0499.jpg

At the very least, it'll give me some peace of mind.


I flattened out these two ridges on the top of the diff as well

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0501.jpg

Ground down all the way

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0502.jpg

I then got out the welder again to fill in the metal that I had taken out to make it nice and smooth.

During this step I also decided to take out the carrier because of the heat from welding so close.

It probably wouldn't have mattered but, again, it's peace of mind.

All smoothed out (It'll look much better after paint)

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0507.jpg

More clean up...

Ground down the little lip on the bottom of the diff

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0510.jpg

Then went on to take off the yoke flange. Its just 4 12mm bolts that hold it on.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0512.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0513.jpg

At this point I decided to replace the pinion seal since it was right there

Used a screw driver to hold the flange in place to I could take off the pinion nut.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0514.jpg

I was honestly preparing to go to war on that thing but it took almost no effort to get off. Interesting...

With the pinion nut off, I just pounded the yoke off the splines

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0515.jpg

Then pried the old seal out with a screwdriver

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0516.jpg

Popped the new one in

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0517.jpg

Then bolted everything back up and torqued the nut to 100 ft lbs. Does that seem ok? I heard a few different things about the spec for just replacing the seal. Any input is appreciated.

EDIT: Finally found the torque spec for the pinion nut. The minimum torque to set the correct preload is 140 ft lbs

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0519.jpg


On to the next project; separating the U-joint from the yoke and driveshaft

EDIT: Ended up not needing this part because I decided to go with a 1310 joint on the axle side and was able to order the new flange yoke with my CV driveshaft from Tom Wood's.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0520.jpg

I was feeling lazy and didn't have my ball joint press, so I just cut the driveshaft ear

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0521.jpg

A few minutes later and vuala

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0522.jpg

Next up was to pull the "turdy five" and mock up the 8.8 to set the pinion angle bracket positions.


I started working alone but soon a crowd began to gather..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0558.jpg

The obligatory 'pulling the turdy' picture

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0559.jpg

Got shorter T-case bolts and got it back to stock height for the SYE.

Hold it right there, I know what you're thinking. "Why didn't you do a tummy tuck?"

Well before you ask I'll explain my reasoning..

1. It really isn't necessary for the wheeling I do right now, even though I want to do it.
2. Since I'm eventually doing the 5.3 Vortec swap, I'm trying to put as little money as I can into this engine and trans.
3. I'm getting sick of spending money...

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0560.jpg

Something seems to be missing here..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0561.jpg

Got the springs and everything mounted up to the 8.8

If you look closely, you can see the turdy five sulking in the background..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0564.jpg

Just the U-bolts holding everything on, the perches aren't welded.

The plan was to get the 8.8 under and still be able to rotate the pinion, didnt work out quite as planned though.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0565.jpg

Put on another buddies' 31's so we could just roll the 8.8 under the jeep

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0566.jpg

Trying to set the pinion angle here..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0567.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0569.jpg

I say trying because all we ended up doing was getting a pretty good estimate of the angle I wanted it at.

Which was 18 degrees..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0570.jpg

Then we pulled the axle back out and set the pinion so that it was perfectly level aka 0 degrees.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0576.jpg

JEEP_Nut1218 03-22-2012 08:23 PM

And then put the angle finder on the perches..

17-18 degrees was about right since I wanted the pinion pointed at the output of the T-case (SYE)**

**In order for the pinion to be properly angled, it needs to point at the output of the T-case (assuming you're going to use a SYE and DC driveshaft).
I had to remove my T-case drop that I put on when I did my lift AND account for the shorter length of the SYE.
I called Tom Wood's and asked how far the AA SYE sticks out from the T-case, they told me 7 inches. It just so happens that this is where the seal on my T-case is now, so it worked out pretty well.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0575.jpg

Then I tacked in the perches and shock mounts

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0572.jpg

I positioned the shock mounts so they'll be flush with the bottom of the axle

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0577.jpg

For those of you building along, these are the measurements I used to determine where the shock mounts and spring perches needed to be..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...IMAG0578-1.jpg

To get the perch dimension, I just measured from the end of the axle and the edge of the spring perch on the D35 and subtracted 5/8" because the 8.8 is 5/8" narrower on either side.

For the shock tab measurements, same thing. Measure the distance from the edge of the spring perch to the mounting surface of the shock tab on the D35. It's somewhat rough but gets the job done all the same.

Got the turdy back in to the jeep so I can drive and stopped here for the night

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0571.jpg

Next up was final welding of all the mounts and the axle tubes..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0578.jpg

I painted the diff cover today, flame red, same as the jeep.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0648.jpg

Also picked up the calipers and will be painting those soon as well.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0647.jpg

Painted

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0663.jpg

Rotors turned and cleaned up

Before

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0661.jpg

After

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0724.jpg

Mmmm.. parts.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0710.jpg

Started bending up the brake lines for the axle..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0708.jpg

I'm going to have the soft line come down the the top of the diff.

Mocking up location of the soft/hard line connection to the caliper

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0711.jpg

Here's what I came up with

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0716.jpg

A bolt will hold the soft line to the bracket through the hole that I drilled

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0718.jpg

Welded a nut to the back for ease of access

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0719.jpg

Everything Mocked up

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0721.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0722.jpg

Caliper brackets and spring plates are ready to go:

Before

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0739.jpg

Possibly against my better judgement and as a result of my OCD kicking in, I decided to cut off all of the parking brake brackets and smooth everything out.

I figure I've never had a parking brake so why start now? Plus I'd rather have a parking brake on the driveline than the wheels.

Brackets after cutting

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0741.jpg

Sandblasted (new job is kick-***)

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0767.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0768.jpg

Finally Painted with chassis saver, I think it turned out great minus my first time spraying paint mistakes

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0771.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0769.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0793.jpg


I also got all the brake lines finished

Driver side

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0732.jpg

Soft and hard lines set. The soft line from the jeep will be relocated to drop from the center.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0734.jpg

Began sandblasting today

Got the second coat of paint on

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...e/IMAG1004.jpg

Installed the shafts and cross pin, everything inside the diff is ready to go. Crappy pics, the humidity was killing me.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...e/IMAG1007.jpg

Installed the caliper mounting brackets

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...e/IMAG1008.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...e/IMAG1015.jpg

Ready to be swapped :thumbsup:

SYE Install

Me "pressing" off the needle bearings of the drive sprocket thing. This is one of the points that I was worried about going into this project. It sounded confusing and I didn't have a press but once I saw what I had to work with it was very simple. Moral of the story, don't fear the SYE.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...IMAG1023-1.jpg

SYE mostly installed

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...IMAG1024-1.jpg

Finished

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...IMAG1025-1.jpg

My brake setup...I needed to extend the hard line so the soft line would come down centered on the axle. Welded a piece of angle and relocated the mounting plate for the hard/soft connection

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...e/IMAG1035.jpg

Installed!

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...e/IMAG1038.jpg

Pinion angle...I might shim it

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...e/IMAG1040.jpg

Its what I get for guesstimating...what do ya'll think?

My 8.8 is wraped up in a tarp next to the garage waiting for me to get motivated!:thumbsup: I'll be watching this thread.

Jwinds 03-23-2012 11:36 AM

Awesome writeup so far. About to start two 8.8 swaps (yj & tj) myself and will definitely be following along!

nathanninja 03-23-2012 12:12 PM

Just finished my YJ 8.8 swap, a lot less clean looking than yours, but mines a DD and I needed it done ASAP. Heres a plug for the ABS hole, the stock sensor will leak if you don't do something. Mine's leaking right now and I'm ordering one of these and in the mean time just RTVing the crap out of it

Just leave the abs sensor in there. It is nothing more than a magnet. Fills the hole nicely too.
The bearings are a pain to get out.

Lookin' good!

rob328 03-23-2012 03:36 PM

Nice Job, quick question? I have a 95 YJ with a auto tranny, if i decide to do the 8.8 do i have to replace front and rear of just the rear diff? i want the 4wd to be functional.
Thanks, I'm looking to do my swap in the in a couple of weeks.

Mine's a DD too, i'm just building this axle on the side. Funny you should mention that part, I was just looking at it today. Might go that route or something else.

I want something more clean looking (yes its pointless really but my OCD has been kicking in). And I might end up using it as a fill hole, so we'll see.

The bearings ended up popping out easy once I heated up the tubes a bit.

Rob

As long as you match the rear with the front gear ratio, you'll be fine.


Thanks for the comments everyone! I wasn't expecting this to be so popular.
Pressure's on now :laugh:

Here's how I'm going to update this thread, I'll post what I have done everyday in a new post but also update one of the first three posts so it stays an easy read.


So let's continue..

Today I pressed in the new bearings and seals.

I cleaned up the tubes with brake clean first and then, using my handy dandy bearing driver, drove everything in.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0483.jpg

Bearing in

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0484.jpg

Seal in

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0485.jpg

I honestly wasn't expecting it to be as easy as it was. It took me all of 5 minutes to press in the B&S's for both sides. I'm not complaining :2thumbsup:


After that I went back to cleaning up the diff.
I ground down more of the plug welds and discovered something kind of odd..

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0488.jpg

That dark spot you see is gear oil seeping out. It was hardly anything but it threw me off a bit.

Just to be safe I got out the welder and filled in a bit

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0490.jpg

Same thing on the other side

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0491.jpg

Here's after grinding down the welds.

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0496.jpg

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0499.jpg

At the very least, it'll give me some peace of mind.


I flattened out these two ridges on the top of the diff as well

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0501.jpg

Ground down all the way

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0502.jpg

I then got out the welder again to fill in the metal that I had taken out to make it nice and smooth.

During this step I also decided to take out the carrier because of the heat from welding so close.

It probably wouldn't have mattered but, again, it's peace of mind.

All smoothed out (It'll look much better after paint)

http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMAG0507.jpg

And here's where I stopped for the night; carrier back in but not torqued. Don't let me forget to do that!


I ordered the chassis saver to paint the axle with today

I took advantage of this promo.
Ordered a Monstliner 1 gallon kit and got a free quart of chassis saver and free shipping! Unbeatable, thanks Magnet Man!


Today I also ordered the spring perches, shock tabs, and U-bolt plates.

I contacted Eddie (BESRK) at Ground Pounder Fab and we figured out what I needed. I'm very pleased so far, Eddie is a great guy to deal with. Thanks again!


One of the other things I need to get is a diff cover. I really like the look of the simple angled steel ones. Not a big fan of any logos or protruding lines.

Right now I'm looking at the RuffStuff or BTF (Blue Torch Fabworks) covers.

Anyone have any suggestions that are the same style?

sitedzn 03-24-2012 04:17 AM

Suggestion for you (I'm working on mine right now too). Either reuse the ABS sensor or get a plate to block off with a bolt. Keep it non-permanent so you can use the hole to fill with oil. If you have an SYE and have angled the axle up, if you use the stock fill hole you won't be able to get it filled to the correct amount. Use the top hole and measure the amount going it. Much easier.

I also got SUA perches and shock tabs from Eddie. Contacted on Friday, in my mailbox on Tuesday. Good stuff. Great guy.

I was planning on using it as a fill hole but haven't decided how exactly I want to do it yet.
I've heard of people threading the hole.. hmm.

And I think I saw your post about that, that's why I decided to go with him lol. Can't beat it!
