No havnt not heard about that. Braking hasnt been in issue on my YJ running stock front brakes with drill/slotted rotors and the Ford 8.8 disc on my D44.

I just checked them out...I like that truss and the C guessets add those to Ballistics coil buckets and that will be a good axle.http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/...it_p_1542.html

I also run these on my YJ 30 and will be adding set to this D30 http://www.atozfabrication.com/store...6&cat=0&page=1

D44a and 8.8 disks are the same. These brakes are a ****ing joke. If you upgrade to wj brakes you get a larger rotor and a double piston caliper. You;ll need dub knuckles, spacers, ball joints, blah blah blah. Look it up. Its not too much work but its worth it.
