Yes everything will as long as you have a u-joint driveshaft and not sure if the 91s came with ABS but I am assuming you aren't concerned with that. I'd have to double check on the sway bar link bolt size because I know the XJ mounting bolts were pressed in unlike the ZJ's

Not sure what you mean by driverside arm, as the bracketing is exactly the same between the two center styles ( <<This is wrong!!!). You might have pinion-angle issues, but that's about it, unless you care about ABS. I'm not sure if the non-abs axles have the provisions for the abs sensor in the knuckles. Also think about inspection and the ABS light being on. That can always be deterred by some bulb removal.

Got my rebuild kit and chain from my neighbor who happens to be a transmission parts salesman. All I need now is the rear oil slinger, which I ordered through the dealer and should be ready Friday. Just in time for this crazy winter we're having...NOT.

Edit: Just saw aircruiser's post about the sway bar. That's a good point.

I dont use a front sway bar. According to some other people the driverside iro long arm will hit the pumpkin or something so it may take some modifying. I guess the gusset is different or something, im not sure

The IRO long arms are different between the LP and HP D30's, he will need the XJ driver's side long arm.

Not a big deal yeah the arm has a different bend to clear the diff on the HP. The only thing that is the same between the ZJ and XJ IRO arms is the passenger's arm.

Took the rear trim panel off the back hatch off tonight so that I could replace my rear wiper motor. Very easy job to do.

Remounted the newly painted front bumper. Sealed my K&N Fipk heat shield with a lid and more metal against the fender, made a cold air port with sheet metal where the factory had small fresh air route between the radiator and headlight on the drivers side. Insulated the outside (facing motor and exhaust manifold.) and inside (facing filter) with foam tape w/ reflective side. Drove around in the snow to see how much water would get in; only small drops and actual frozen drops sitting around the filter. Win & Good.
