CJ7 frame swap - sway bar issues
Have a new/used CJ7 frame that I'm swapping with my old frame under my 1978 CJ7. the new frame does not have the same mounting brackets or threaded holes as the original frame. On the original the brackets bolt (w/ one bolt thru a sleeve) through the frame and two threaded bolts under the frame rail. The new frame does not have any the holes or mounting points for the brackets. Not sure what to do?? Wondering if any of you ran into this sort of thing and/or if you have any suggestions. Thanks.
Depending on what you plan on using the jeep for, I would drive it without the sway bars first and see what you think. If you are using lift springs, you most likely wont need them IMO. If you do want them, I would hook everything up, make sure the sway bar is level, use the bracket as a template to drill your holes. I like to weld a nut to a washer, put the nut into the frame and the weld the washer to the frame. That way, you can thread your bolts into the frame.
