no , but i could crawl under there tommorro and take a few.I just winged it and used stuff i had laying around. You will need some square tube , eyes from an old shock,and a little 1/4 flat bar, and some 1/2" hardware

looks like you welded nuts on to the back of the smaller brackets, is that right? so it is just solely supported by the original shock mounts

that is correct. I did get some air over the top of some dunes in pismo and it held up fine

help! What did i do wrong? I took the jeep down the freeway today and i had some bad vibrations out of the rear drive shaft. I pulled over and i couldn't understand why my rear pinion angle was now way off? The welds didn't break, and when i set it up i was real careful. Instead of angling down 2 * it now is up about 3-4* ? Did my springs settle into a new position. I had full weight on it when i did it. The rear yoke straps are stretched and the yoke is damaged. I'm lucky to make it home. To top that off my ignition sw or something went out and i had to jump across the solenoid to get it started.

im not going to cut the welds just yet. Im thinking of changing the shackles in the rear to 5" instead of 6", then add shims if needed

I would say your axle tubes spun. This is probably why the rtv was tore on the inside of the axle and the leaking of fluid out of the tubes.

I looked at the pumpkin and it didn't spin. I'm a little baffled as to why my drive shaft angle is off.

The nose of the rear end must be really moving a lot under load and i don't know why. The u joint to rear end yoke straps were all stretched out and that was letting the drive shaft flop around a little. The yoke apparently moves up so much that the little 5/16 bolt heads got tore up when hitting the drive shaft yoke.

i should wire up a video camera under there so i can see it under load.

I put new straps on and added some shims on the leaf springs and it helped a little. I still think I'm cutting down the shackles one inch to help the angle. ill only lose a !/2" of lift

While i was at it i welded the pumpkin any way

I took a little brake from the jeep this morning and went fishing at loon lake ,which just happens to be at one of the entrances to the Rubicon trail. The jeep is almost ready to tackle the trail. I think ill try out an easier trail first. Caught a limit by noon and went home and changed the rear 6" shackles to a set of 5". It angled the nose done a lot. i test drove it and i think its going to work. I might lower the front to. I didn't notice any driving control difference . I still think i get lot of axle wrap up under load, which i don't know how to prevent. Anybody with ideas?

well since your sua you shouldn't really need to worry about axle wrap, even if that was it it usually returns back to normal unless you bent the springs. you could make an anti-wrap bar but i can't say i have seen one on a sua jeep. u-bolts all still nice and tight? where the springs new and just settled a lot? i don't know, just talking out loud, this is a good one. i got tired of those straps messing up so i replaced them with the u bolt style, all you have to do is drill out the holes in your yoke. part # pcn-534-10 from summit, $6.

Im really thinking that the axle wrap is the problem, I got the nose down of the yoke and under full load in first it still starts to vibrate but not as bad as before. The bolt heads arnt hitting any more. Maybe if i had used the longer perches it would of helped. I used the shorter one from the don-er 44.I was afraid the longer one would flatten the springs to much but i think they might of been the way to go.

any pics of a anti wrap bar?

Thanks to the part# , i was was going to do a search for some of those today, good timing.

Are those perches welded on to the axle?
