I would also highley recommed boxing in the passenger upper control arm mount and adding in mini skids to the axle you are building up

And another note, It has been pointed out allready but you CAN NOT run without a stubshaft, just want everyone to be clear. The hub failed becasue there was no stub shaft in there to support the bearing.
Got a pic of the other mounts? I have to run to junkyard again so I'll grab em.

Is this the correct bracket? I believe it's all I need other than pads and rotor right?

What ya want? I average ~19 mpg around town in it. But I also shift at 1500.


Big red almost ready, just need rotors redrilled. Buddy who works at a machine shop is redrilling them for me so they will be 100%, will have em next weekend. The swap is so far going great took me and my pops about 2 hrs start to current.


Ball joints and u-joints line up perfect thanks to jcr spacer


Steering angles are still ok, since the wj knuckle is different stock steering is about 1" lower.

You have red knuckles? Paint your brakes red and you'll have a racecar.
