I welded them so that I have factory angles. It doesn't wander any more than expected on 35's with 18psi.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.

It would keep your caster angle at factory.

I dont think I used the metal sleeve in the shock bushing. Try removing it. Also, some shocks come with two different size metal sleeves. Be sure you are using the large one. If it doesn't fit, just run it with out the metal sleeve.

I recognize that 8.8 spring plate. I am still sprung under and cut my spring plate to reuse the shock mount but welded it onto the axle.

Not really sure what I set it at. I was less concerned with the numbers and more concerned about getting the drive shaft pointed correctly.

Here is the diagram from Tom Wood. As long as it looks like this, you should be good. Just be sure you have enough oil in the diff to ensure the pinion bearings are getting oil. I managed to stuff 4qts in my 8.8.

It currently is the factory YJ opening. The PO installed the corner armor to the tub and I am being indecisive about what armor I am going to replace it with. I am waiting to get new armor with a TJ opening then I am going to cut the body to match the opening in the new armor.
