Finished up the left side, may need longer wheel studs.

Not nit picking, but why not weld the perches for the pinion angle you want?

You are right though ideally that would have been the best route and my friend Tommy operates a garage not far from me. Honestly though I'm running out of nice days to work on this thing. I took the housing to work and my brother in law welded it up for me that night. Since then I've spent the past 2 days getting the brake parts together and installed instead of dragging the truck back and forth from Tommy's shop.

Yep. I put a wheel on it and I've only got about 5/8" of stud sticking out.

Ah, I totally understand that, just went though something very similar with my buddies TJ. 'Cept we had to weld everything up, and set the suspension up at the same time, but I didn't have time to paint them before they got bolted in place. Now we have to pull the axles so I can paint them for him.

Maybe I missed it, but what kit did you use for the rear disk conversion? Looks good BTW.

Not a kit, they are the rear disc brakes off of an '05 KJ(Liberty) out of a junk yard, direct bolt on. Other popular conversions are from a ZJ Grand Cherokee, or if you have a Dana 44, Ford Explorer and Crown Victoria rear brakes. Plenty of write ups on all of these.

Yep, I'm familiar with them, I was just curious as to which set up he was using, thanks.

Installed the new wheel studs I picked up today. Bought the ones for a '97 ZJ, ended up about a half inch longer than the stock 8.25 studs.

Which bushings? Seems like I've replaced most everything that was stock. Most of the stuff I bought came from one or two places:

Energy Suspension Parts Dealer, Specializing in Energy Suspension Bushings Suspension Components.

eBay Store - Summit Racing Equipment: Engines Components, Tools, Air Fuel Delivery

PM me about anything specific and I'll send you a link.
