are you going with the radius arms then ? the johnny joints are bigger on the 3 link, plus you can upgrade to the 4th link for around 320$ if you want to add it later. it would take some exhaust mods but would work..

I'm not really sure yet. I decided I'm going to get the rear axle done first and wheel it on short arms ( the stock ones) for a little while. I like both designs, it's hard to decide!

So I decided to pick up an 8.25 instead of swapping in the 8.8. It will just make things a little easier, has enough strength for me, and is the same gearing as the 30. I also ordered new u bolts, u bolt plates, extended front bumpstops, and some hockey pucks

When you put in your 8.25 did you use the center hole in the perch or slide it back so the spring pin was in the front hole. I dont know about you but I barely had any room at the front of the wheel well. So I slid mine back and gained an 1 1/2" of wheel base and needed clearance.

I used the original center hole. Went back just like my 35 did. I'll get some pics up tomorrow.
