I have WJ knuckles and brakes and a 1 ton TRE kit from parts mike on my YJ. When I installed it I tried re useing my stock tierods , but they were a bear it get on and they would rub the top of the springs. WJ steering arms are a little lower than the stock YJ stuff. Also they are a little farther in, so the stock tie rod had to be adjusted out a lot to make the alignment right. I only drive like that for a few miles just to get back to the house (did the swap at a friends house)
I then ordered the hd steering kit from parts mike that had the 1-1/8 dia, .188 wall tierods and 1 ton tre's. I then bought a reamer and reamed out the knuckles to put the tierods on top of the steering arm. Also reamed out the pitman arm.
Dont forget about the 1/4 inch thick spacer you have to weld to the knuckle.
