Unit bearing with lockouts. Here is a short video walk around. It has drive flanges on it but you can choose Lockouts.

What about machining the knuckles for hi steer arms? Are you still looking for old wj speed sensors?

More info to come and we will likely start another thread, but this is 5x5.5, with a big brake package. Requires 16 inch wheels, 5x5.5 is compatible with our rear.

Answers to questions sure to come......

You can not have a true 1 ton axle that is 5x5 wheel pattern (or 5x4.5). The Dana 60 Hub is to large to fit through a 5 inch center. If you loose the Dana 60 hub you loose the big shafts and u-joints making upgrading axles worthless.

This front is not in itself ABS compatible like our rear, our plan is to tie front ABS into rear. We will be Installing axle in the front of the shop WJ next week and will detail out the process.

I have partially loaded the axle on the site. The complete axle with all needed components to install, re-geared with all new bearings will range from $4300-$5800. The $5800 options will have 35 Spline chromo shafts throughout and ARB with all the bells and whistles.

MORE TO COME NEXT WEEK THE TJ FRONT AXLE IS ALSO COMPLETE JUST NEEDS A DONOR VEHICLE FOR TESTING!

Yes we could use some WJ Axle tone rings.

Axle shown above does have highsteer arm for Draglink (pass side), we do not think full crossover steering is possible do to Trac bar location. The draglink up top should provide good angles to minimize bumpsteer. We will work out the steering next week, we have different height springs so we can determine which set up works best for each lift. Tierod that comes with axle will be an top of stock knuckle location and will be DOM 1.5-250 Wall so it should be sufficient.

Also if I wanted to look for other caliper options like Brembo, how would I know which caliper would fit? Do I tell the guy its for a one ton axle out of which car?

I was wondering how the rear went in with the 6" clayton LA kit. i am very interested but am unable to look at it upclose. it appears to me that the truss in the original picture posted would be directly in the way of where the upper rear arms attach to the diff.
