haha there aren't many axles that have brake caliper brackets cast into them, just some TTB ford stuff and I think unit bearing dana 60's. Check out post number 538, about 30 posts back. You can see the brake brackets
If the bracket was one with the knuckle that would be opening a whole new can of worms lol
You guys are both welcome. Like I was telling Marc, we all gotta help eachother, sometimes it aint about making money. I just want to see this thing in action! You did a hell of a job! It should be there this Saturday.

Dillon, we found out exactly how important that bolt is, and all I can say is you'd be having a bad day without it haha. From the short test drive Marc and I did a few days ago (less than a mile), the H block was half way to removing itself.
TJSWJ, the bracket came in today and I got it installed. Apparently this one uses a 3/8" bolt which caught us by surprise, but not enough to slow us down . Marc left for home with the WJ about 15 minutes ago. Here's to smooth sailing on the trip home!

And this time its not my Jeep! We took my buddies 4runner Saturday to get my jeep. On the way back, the rear pinion bearing seized and locked up the tires at freeway speed on highway 80. I was behind him and saw the whole thing. Managed to get on the shoulder and slid sideways for about 200 feet. It could have been REALLY bad, especially with no doors, a dog, and a ton of snap on tools in the back.
We were on the side of the freeway for about 2 hours. And got towed by a ford :-( but it all worked out.
I still have to get the shocks filled with nitrogen. Driving it home and to work one day without it, and man it was soft. Hopefully I'll have some flex shots later in the week. No speedo sucks, but I'll be fixing that soon. It stalls slowing down from freeway speeds at times, I'm guessing from the lack of speed reading. And it drives way better than it did before. No death wobble, slight vibe at 65 from rear pinion angle. Easy to adjust. Other than that, its 100 times better than before. Cruising 65 mph, rpms are around 2100 with the 5.38s and 37s. Before I was could barely cruise 55-60 and hold speed easily with 3.73s and 35s.
