definitely a 44 rear! Looks like you got a slam guard oil pan and long tube headers also!

Definitely a 44.

And I hope it's just the picture, but the tubes look bent.

Congratulations on your first CJ, and especially a nice one! I too recently just purchased my first CJ, a 78 with 258 4.2L, & 3spd manual. And even though its def got some issues, ive never been happier. Nice lookin D44s you got there.

I need suggestions for shock mounting/shocks. The Ranchos have bent tubes from the C's hitting them when it flexes. I need to find either something with smaller diameter tubes or shorter tubes or a combination of both. Either that or find a new mounting location. Pic's of CJ's would be helpful if you can.

As for the tubes being bent, I believe it is just the picture. If you look at the last one I posted it looks straight to me, and it looks straight when you are laying underneath the Jeep.

Very nice start and as stated before be prepared to be broke (Jeep poor) as this does get in to your pocket. The D44 was a very nice surprise upgrade much better for running the 35's than the AMC20.

On your shocks a little more info would help, like what shocks are hitting what axle and pictures of the shock mounts you now have. More than likely your best bet would be a custom upper mount to move the body of the shocks from the axle tubes and allow more travel as well as more shock options. If you are planning highway driving you may want to look into a front sway bay with some type of quick disconnects, it does help keep your CJ between the lines in a crosswind or around corners. Four wheel disc would be nice when running those 35's as well.
