Found out I get a free e-brake assembly today. Gotta take my junk to the dealership and have it installed. Gotta love recalls!

the part numbers are different, but that doesn't mean they won't work. i.e, the tie-rod swap for a TJ using GC parts, the Dakota steering box, later model intake swap and so on. Part numbers don't match, but it works

I've seen several GC's that are running shorter TJ front springs in the rear and taller TJ springs in the front to get a lift up to 6"s, so it can be done...

I'm curious as to what would happen if you put stock TJ front springs in the rear, how much lift would it give and what would you need in the front... I have three sets of stock TJ springs

Jason got the parts low down. If you have it done in a shop with a gear set-up and alloy axles plan on $1,000 -$1,500 without a locker, add $500-$750 with a locker. If you DIY the major parts like pulling an axle removing the old mounts and such you can almost cut the cost in half. But, if you re-gera above your current ratio you have to re-gear the front. Price is axle only, SYE, drive-shaft, adjustable control arms and so on are extra.

Shops:

MIT Drivetrain Specialists, 1112 Pioneer Way

Phone: (619) 579-7727

An 8.8 swap link: http://www.geocities.com/yj3qtr_ton/88swap.html

I'd hit the junkyard, pull your own and join the crowd. When ya coming wheelin with us??

That's usually what they do, plus, larger items like wheels/tires, body parts and complete motor/trans tend to get picked, axles just aren't a big draw. You'll see a lot of people there from smaller body shops and garages, cars like Honda, Toyota etc get hit pretty hard

Chevy 350, hi-torque engine, needs to be rebuilt? So if we took the engine to Jason's garage, rebuilt it and one day Jason's Jeep suddenly had a 350 in it...

Part out the boat. Its the only way.

Hey Kory I hear you have a 350 you're looking to get rid of. I don't mind if it needs to be rebuilt. I'll give you $100.

Thats too rich for my blood. I stated earlier that I was looking for a reputable place to have it done but I know that a lot of people do these swaps in their garages. I live in an apartment so that wouldn't work. Would it be better for me to find some 4cyl axles at the junk yard and put those in instead? If I got JY axles would there be any prep that I would have to do in order to put them in? I have been wanting to meet some offroaders and go to Ocotillo or to Glamis to check it out. Since the gas prices are so high I'll have to wait.

I am a student and am on budget but I would like to get lower gears to help out with gas mileage and also when I go offroad. Any advice would be appreciated.

Depends on what 'that' weekend is. Dates? I have an on-call weekend coming up and can't commit to anything on 'that' weekend.

Can you explain what exactly you are trying to do? Why are you replacing axles in the first place? Just need a little back story here. Also, we have the work place to do anything you need done.
