Rearend question

Looking for a company out there that sells a kit, ( brackets, perches, shock mounts Etc. ) to install a late 80's Dana 44 out of an XJ into a 95 ZJ.
Any help or suggestions would be great.
Thanks

Not to veer off the subject but have you looked into an 8.8? Is there a specific reason your using that 44?

Ya I have one of the rare D44's with all iron no aluminum with the same 4.56 gears that match my front Dana HP30 and the 44 has a LSD already installed. Eventually I would like to install an 8.8 but since I already have the 44 and a friend that can weld all the hardware it fits my budget..

Just Google XJ D44 disk brake conversion, there's easily 10+ pages of different ways to do this out of a JY.
