Morning fellow Jeepers, does any one have a set of cheap rear shocks that they want to get rid off? I just found out my rear shocks are dead. I'm looking for something around 9-8" of travel or a shock that will fit a 2" lift.

Thanks

Lol I meant CA law makers. You might stand a chance of a civil union now with the whole prop8 thing passing.

"Do you take this jeep?

You should register at ORW. I wish my fiance would have let me haha

Just got back from ProGear SD.. They quoted me + - 900 bucks to regear my rear 44.. Seriously?.... Guess its a wonderful excuse to step up to a 8.8 in the rear and sell the 44. SOOO anyone interested in a 44 rear with Rubicon bracketry, moser axles, detroit locker and 4.56 gears? perfectly fine rearend..... May be a number of months before I sell but I'm thinking maybe 1500.00 for the whole rearend. Looking to do a 8.8 4 link with an ARB

Call Robert at rwkhaussupply.com. He is in Orange County. He is a good guy and should be quite a bit cheaper

if you pull the axle out of the jeep border parts will do it for considerably less than that.

they did a carrier swap (open to ARB) for me for $200+parts.

but you have to bring them the axle out of the jeep.

yeh, he hooked me up w/my front hp44. Just wanna get a stronger rearend. Hate the brakes as well . Thinking super 8.8 with 4 link truss. Might hit the pick a part and start a slow build.

A built 44 is plenty strong. Why mess with the 8.8 when you already got the 44?

I need to re gear it to match the front. The guy was telling me that it's gonna be like 950 or more depending on what they run into. Also said they use whatever gear brand is cheapest... REALLY? I was expecting like 450 to 600 tops....

8.8 ring and pinion are larger than a D44.


although unless superior is up and running again he is going to have trouble finding a super 88 kit.


although I agree, personally I'd go with a D60 or 9" if you are going to move past a 44 an 8.8 isn't enough of an upgrade to make it worthwhile.

or sell the Rubi 44 for some $$$ an build an XJ 44 with the 4 link since it will need brackets anyway.

You should he has very good pricing on parts and is not terribly expensive on labor. Not really a whole lot of sense to go to an 8.8 axle
If anything spend the coin on a Ford 9"
Personally for what you do with your Jeep what you have is more than adequate. Spend the rest of the money you save, on rear disk brakes

so the super 88 isnt around anymore? I considered a 60 but I dont care to go beyond 35's. At least not anytime soon, and a 60 would become a shovel with 35's. I'll look for the best regear price and if it's reasonable I'll stick w/the 44. Just love to upgrade whenever possible.....

Jewkon ripped the super 88 off and are selling it as the ultimate 88, but as far as I know superior is not doing business currently. they could start up again at any time. and some distributors may have that part on the shelf.

as far as the 60 being a shovel, the housing only sits about 1" lower than a 44 housing, which is about the same as an 8.8 anyway.

I'm tempted to agree with Art, throw the money into a 9"... but having a pinion that low concerns me.
