I see on BDS' website where you have the option of getting U-bolts for a Dana 44, which is what I'm putting under it, are these the ones I need?
Also, does anyone have shackle recommendations? Leaning toward putting 35's on this jeep so I'm wanting a little more height.
The current plan right now is to regear and lock the 44, possibly a disc brake conversion, all while its not under anything. Ill probably do the same for the 30 because I won't have to change carriers since its geared 3.73. Edit: I was planning on keeping the front open.
I put 73ish axles under my 86. The rear is a 44. I got u bolts from auto value. They will make them however you want them. I also have a 4" superlift on mine and would have no problem running 35's with stock shackles.
I also added disc brakes to my 44. I converted to GM calipers all around using the caliper mount plates from 69-79 1/2 ton trucks and blazers.....
My front has a lunchbox locker and rear is factory limited slip. I'm very happy so far....
