Its ok. The used pads and rotors I got were in excellent shape. I can probably get another year maybe 2 out of them.

That's good to know because when I do my axle swap those are the axles I want. Wasn't sure of the quality of the used parts though.

I wonder how the uppers and all will affect my R.E. 3.5 lift??
I have the RE 3.5" with upper adjustable arms and the setup is great.

I am hoping to order my locked 8.8 from ECGS soon but debating on the HP30. They are local for me so no shipping. I currently run 33's and plan to go larger with my next set. I am also doing the SYE and CV DS with the rear swap. I am doing a slow build trying to get things as I can. Not optimal, but works. I will probably regear and upgrade front axle when shifting to larger tires.

Yeah, seem that is what I'll end up doing for now building slow. Just put on some new BFG A/T KOs today, so I'll probably start saving up for the whole swap.
