Time for true reverse engineering. The C Clip does need to be removed thru that little whole. The forum that linked this page said follow this but in reverse.

These are KOR sliderz for the ZJ. Because of the way our door sticks out from the rocker, the little extra sticking out on the slider helps in a big way. Then you have to figure how the are going to be attached to the unibody under carriage.

Free shocks, springs, everything from an '04 TJ:

Just might work, same springs? Make up some of the sag? Would have to measure it out but worth a shot, be fun to try it
hmm well if it is free why not give it a shot what's th worst that can happen... we take them back off plus i have that budget boost to put on so when we pull out the old we can compare the too i'll check out the craiglist post. i gave him a call left a message we'll see what he saids at worst we have some more back up stuff in case any one needs it.

looks like those horizontal springs and pins are the key, but they would not budge.

grrrrr

well i was checking autozone to see if part numbers would match up but they are completely different.... so i think i'm going to run this set up for now and start saving to eventually do a lift the right way. for my budget i think it works out that way soon i'll be getting a roomate and i'll be saving 300 bucks a month so i'll save up a couple of months and by fall i think i can get a decent set up. once i get the rockers and the belly pan done up then the lift will be next on the list. Thanks for your hard work guys and great advice

Now that definitely seems like a good, get 'er back on the road deal. But just what does he mean: Rear Diff $25.00

: Dana 35, non c-clip Ratio I think is 3.73

Since i have the gearing in the rear for a 4.11, if I manage to pull that locker out would we be able to convert this 3.73 to a 4.11?

If so seems like a great deal that I will jump on, unless Steve any further info on the trip to gather 8.8s?

You would have to change front and rear to get going cheap. The 3:73 carrier will not take gears up to 4:11 and would have to be replaced.

don't jump into anything yet, except for getting that locker out. If there is no damage to the remainder of the differential you can get going for the price of spiders and side gears. <$100 for new parts.


junkyard trip is this week, maybe friday. saturday for sure.

I can stop by and try helping with the locker one night this week.

Hi all I am wanting to price how much a 8.8 swap would cost me. Where is a reputable place to get it done in San Diego. What are the parts needed?

I'm not gonna lie.....I'm a little depressed this morning. I wake up, get some coffee, a bowl of cereal and read Jeff's morning post. Today - not there.

For a TJ, off the top of my head...lets see

Shock mounts
Spring mounts
Track Bar mounts
Shorter drive shaft
yoke adapter
U-joints
brake adapters/balancer?

We have all the facilities you need in this little bastard group of ours. I have no idea where you would go to get it professionally done though.

Someone needs a hug.


I did answer a question in YJ tech though.


A thought ocurred to me this am regarding the half price day at the JY. Just a guess but I bet the cars that are all there now have been pretty well picked over and there is not much left. Could that be why it is half price? It seems unlikely that they would bring out a fresh crop of stuff and then give it away cheap.

The guy that bought your springs said he was down at the pull your part place hunting for some just the day prior. He said that he spoke with them about the half price weekend and they said they start bringing in a crap load of new stock just before the weekend.

Take the info for what its worth, but thats what I heard! I figure worse case I waste $2 and some gas money.

We will need to file a waiver request with the central office in order to get permission to work on non-jeep items.

Fill out a TPS form and I will try to rush it through for approval.
