Finally got the 8.8 in. I got access to a shop that a buddy of mine works in, and we knocked it out in an afternoon. But we were kind of pressed on time so I wasn't able to take very many pictures.
...halfway decent welds
Out with the old
In with the new.
Perches and shock mounts from IRO
u bolts and spring plates from IRO
brake line kit from ECGS
1310 flange adaptor from ECGS
A lot more get up and go with the 4.10.
Can stop on a dime with all discs. Just need a ZJ proportioning valve.
And since I used IRO brackets, placement and welding were a breeze.
What would I do differently:
Since the IRO perches have 3 center pin holes, and I set the as as far back as I could, it stretched the stock soft line to it's limits. And although now I have extended steel lines in the mail, I would have liked to have those before hand.
Other than that it went relatively smooth.
