ZJ to XJ high pinions swap, Control arm mounts.

Will I have any problems doing this swap with a 5.5 lift?

"XJ and ZJ front axles DO NOT have the same mounting positions for the control arms. The ZJ long arms WILL bolt up to the XJ axle, but you will not have a desirable range of caster adjustment."

Heres my front end again...

You have adjustable short arms to adjust your caster, so you don't need to worry about that. Get that puppy in there!

Edit: just make sure if you upgrade to long arms in the future, get the xj arms.

That only applies in the case of iro long arm lifts. The mounts ARE IN THE SAME PLACES. The caster vs pinion angle set with the way the knuckles are welded on is different. Iro's hokey iron y can't be adjusted enough and will make contract with the high pinion. No one else's lifts have this problem.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
