spring over with chry 8.25

hey everybody

im an Xj guy but ive got an 8.8, and am getting rid of my rear chry 8.25. i have a friend who is thinking about using it for when he goes SOA. are the perches the same width for both jeeps, or would we have to cut the old spring mounts off and weld new ones on. hes got 1.5 inch springs, so with SOA would he have to re-do his steering, or would a pitman arm, and tracbar drop do the job

and he knows he has to do SYE/cv shaft also

You would need the high steer to set it up correctly, since he will be running what....6" of suspension lift at least. And The perches will have to be cut and re-welded. I believe the cherokee perches are narrower then the YJs
