I only posted my picture a couple years ago because timatoe and another member posted similar ones. Its pretty common.

It is why my shock mounts are here now

I seem to have the same mount problem, but I'm not quite ready for the 8.8 upgrade. My mount broke in the same place as yours, it seems like the stock mount comes in two pieces and is welded together, is that true? I am interested in your fix for the shock mounts. I have found the terraflex bar that you used but I can't seem to find the 90 degree mounts for the axle yet. are they homemade?

For the bottom shock mount you can get cj spring plates with shock studs on them for a no weld fix.

The standard shock mounts are universal and the 90* inserts are from teraflex on their website. I would strongly suggest fabbing your own at the price they sell them.

I had the same problem as well and went with the 8.8 Upgrade to 4.10 gears front and rear.
I was lucky to get the 8.8 as a donor from a junk exploder and the front I got from a guy on Clist from a 4 banger.
Reweld the spring perches on the rear and install the flange with a new U joint on the rear side of the
drive shaft.
Works amazing.

Where did you find the Teraflex bar? Every website I have found it on says it is no longer available.

Its not completely no weld, but I think it is a good idea. you can modify YJ front spring plates to mount on the rear and mount the rear shock to the pin that would normally hold the sway bar link in the front. The front spring plates are about the same cost as new weld on axle shock mounts.

jeepguy85 I couldn't find the teraflex bar either when I went to try and order it. They are gone forever apparently.

teraflex bars are gone forever. Might get lucky and find one here or there for about $100 or so. They clearanced them out at like $25 a pop a year ago or so.

I can only assume then you'll be re-gearing the front to match...

You guys crack me up, ha ha ha.

My plugs need replacing, time for new motor. Shoes need to be changed, time for new rear axle assembly, ha ha ha.

I am to much of a scrooge for that. It has to be very cost effective for me to do something like that. I wish I could make myself do stuff like that but I worry about having money to complete it and something going wrong in the middle and me not being able to fix it. Look at the 302 in the garage, been there a year. But, that damn accelerator cable is sticking so maybe its time to put that 302 in.

And I am not making fun of you guys, those answers are the answers that make me laugh at work and improve my day. I love seeing the answers you guys have.
