You must drill out the plug welds that secure the tubes to the center section of the axal housing and then reclock your tubes back to the origanal steering angle

one mroe question. and i ask this bc i ahve never used them, but an wide track axle is about 4 inches over all wider, i can get bolt on hub adapters that use new studs and so on. they are approx 2" per side, could i not use these instead of the trouble of trying to find wide track axles?

I have something similiar on my CJ5. I used a rear bumber from Blue Torch Fab that has shackle hangers integrated in the bumper. You use XJ springs mounted backwards to get the 5" stretch. Unfortunately, you must use the stock front hangers in the stock location. The flex is crazy!

As for the front, contact Mountain Off Road for a shackle reversal kit. This will allow you to run YJ springs in the front. The amount of lift you want depends on if you want to keep the big *** tires. I currently run 33s, (had them when the jeep was stock) but have room to run 37s.

Parts Mike has the kit to change the tie rods to the top of the spindles. Mine was about $300. You get ridiculously stronfg tubes with larger Tie Rod Ends. This kit also includes a ream to taper the holes from the top of the knuckle. Use a 5/8" drill to slighly enlarge the holes, then use the taper.

Good Luck. PM me if you have any further questions.

well i can use the design that is on mine the hangers on rear have been moved back and the fron hangers ahve been moved back so i can use cj or yj springs, on the fron i can still use cj or yj springs if i like. What is the purpose of relocating the hangers to the back of the leafs, more flex?.
