I was thinking of upgrading those as well but I didnt know when I should upgrade them. I was thinking of getting rear lockers just dont know which one or start upgrading my control arms one by one or my ingition system to get better response and maybe mpg.

I just dont know where to start.

If I were to do the upgrade, would it mess me up when I upgrade or swap the axles for the front and rear later on? If I were to do this, what would be the best way to approch it?

Im planning to start buying my control arms but individual. So front lowers first followed by rear lowers then upper front then rear again?

Yes it would screw you up, because if you bought a locker for a d35 and, lets say, you swapped an 8.8 in. You cant put the d35 locker in the 8.8. Most people dont upgrade the d35 because its a weak axle and most people swap it out anyways. I would save the money and swap in a different axle that is actually worth throwing a locker in. If you want bolt in, get a d44a out of a 96-98 v8 and truss it. The only weak point is the aluminum housing so if you truss it, its basically as strong as an 8.8, from what ive heard.

For the rockers does it have to sit flush with the current rockers or can I just build it right under it and for me to be able to bolt onto the frame, can I just drill it in different places to have it hold up.
