i just had the toe aligned. if i can find the papers ill tell you exactly. but its not a toe in kind of wander. that would be like a darty feel. its like bumpsteer where the wheel turns itself. i dont think its actually bumpsteer though because it does it even on smooth roads not just on bumps. and only when i get to around 45 mph and higher. at slower speeds it handles like a dream. and i blasted through my yard a couple times over some bumps and for the most part the steering wheel stayed straight. im just confused on what could be the cause. i took some pics that im about to upload to photobucket then ill post them. the only other thing i can think of is the whole axle moving left to right but thats not common with leaf springs. unless theres a force pushing the axle. like turning when your tire is up against a rock or something.

Oh and the 2 bolts for a stabalizer mount was also temporary. Just to see if a stabalizer helped at all.

I realized the rear spring perches on a ford Dana 60 are already the right width for a xj so I'm happy about that. I'm going to build a ladder bar soon. Basically all I need is to weld a new spring perch on the front axle because it was ground off so ill get one for that and then take a weekend to strip my axles off, build shackle mounts up front, I've got some stock Yj springs that ill use, and ill put the full widths on and see what ill need for brakes and driveshafts Ill prob end up pulling the axles back out after I get them fit and all my mounts welded up and I'm gonna paint them and all that ****. Should have some updates soon

I got my axles from a 1978 f250. They are 3/4 ton. The 60 you just cut the perches off and weld them farther in to match the cherokee spring width. The rear is easy as pie. The front is nice because the axle tubes are free space to weld on coil buckets and link mounts. An easy way to throw a dana 44 on the front is a ford radius arm setup though. The only mounts you end up making are 2 mounts on the jeep for the ford radius arms and you can extend the radius arms so they are flatter and ride better. Then you make a trackbar and roll with it. Leaf springs was easy too if you wana go that route

Some cherokees had a 44 rear. Honestly cutting and welding perches is not hard at all and if you can do it your rear axle choices are basically unlimited

My honest thoughts on this are, After wheeling with them I don't like 44s. At all. They are to delicate in the front application as far as shafts go they still use the 5x-760 joints I have in my turdy. In the rear they have bearing problems all to often. Your better off with a 8.8 or a 29 spline 8.25. Ibjeepin has beaten his on 35s I beat mine on 34s that are pretty grippy. I have seen them last on 36-37s. If you want bolt in that is your guy.

You say 44s have bearing problems(which they don't) yet suggest an 8.25? ( which are constantly burning through pinion bearings) Even the 29 spline shafts are still in the same region as a d35, and the aftermarket support is nothing compared to a 44. The 44 is stronger than a 8.25 hands down.
