Skyj, I had read your thread on the subject during my research. I may pm you because if I go the direction you did, I'd like to get the dimensions you used, and what you used to connect to the stock shock upper (the button you welded on the side).

Not to hijack jeep_nuts thread pm away. I kinda just winged it I cut it out of cardboard first then liked about the second one I made so I built it out of 1/4 steel. I used a piece of tubing with an inside diameter of 5/8 to connect my bracket to the existing upper shock mount. I can take some measurements and let you know what I did to achieve mine. Sorry Jeep_nut hijack over.

I wish. Haven't worked on it since we did the welding. But I might still be able to get it in before the 5th.

We'll see!

Mmmm.. parts.



Started bending up the brake lines for the axle..



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



Here's what I came up with



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



Welded a nut to the back for ease of access



Everything Mocked up





Stay tuned!

Well despite graduation parties, a new job, and all around summer partying... I'm finally starting to make some progress

The new deadline for this thing is July 10th. I'm going to Silver Lake Sand Dunes for a few days and am going to have it done by then.

Caliper brackets and spring plates are ready to go:

Before



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



Sandblasted (new job is kick-***)





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








I also got all the brake lines finished

Driver side



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

Looks good! Your probably going to need to install a different proportion valve for the rear disk brakes to make them work right. Right now you have 10 lbs of residual pressure on your drum brakes b/c of the return spring but disks don't have return springs so they only need 2 lbs of residual pressure, so 10 lbs on disks will make them stick.....
