Waggy front parts list

Hey guys,

Does anyone have a line to the parts i need to get a waggy front axle setup to support a high steer setup and also have a 5x5.5 bolt pattern.

I searched and everything i found had bad links or seemed to not be that clear.

Im wanting to just be able to buy what i need on rock auto if possible.


Also is there a setup that would allow me to run sua for a bit and support adding a high steer arm? For when i go soa?

It's been a while since doing mine but Parts Mike Parts had the flat top knuckles, high steer arms, and some other stuff as I recall. He would mill and drill the knuckles as well

So when I'm looking at some of the knuckles that are already machine that's over on parts Mike and then the ones like the East coast or selling they all say that their machine for a CJ. is there any difference in the machine work done on those and the work that you would have done to put these on to a YJ. I think I might pull the trigger on one of these set since when looking at the cost of getting used knuckles and pay him for the machine work and then buying arms only about 50 bucks away from just buying the set from these guys but I want to make sure that there's no change in the angles or something on the machine work on cj vs yj before I buy them.

I can't see why there would be a difference.

Do yourself a favor and purchase a set of Reid Ford knuckles. That way you can buy a complete F150 outers. Rather than try to mix and match parts hoping it will all play nice together.


One thing about the Ford Reid`s is that they are based on the Bronco wheelbase rather than a typically longer WB pickup. Meaning the Ackerman is much better suited for our YJ`s. End result is a much better handling vehicle.


Drag link to a high steer arm on the passenger knuckle and the tie rod to the cast arms on the knuckle itself.


There are no high steer arms that will preserve any semblance of Ackerman available. You want the Ackerman and the resulting steering geometry for a good handling rig.


Plus if you ever find a set of 78/79 F250 brake caliper brackets you can switch over to the F250 1 ton dual piston calipers and larger rotor from a Dodge 150 and still keep your 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern.


I ran this setup for a number of years. It worked very well even without a steering dampener. That said the 2 pictures do show a PSC ram however I did run without anything for a season.

IF you cannot find the Ford caliper brackets than do the same set up with the Chevy/Waggy Reids. You wont be able to run the bigger 1 ton caliper from a Ford though.


The links the Paul provided show you how to mate the DL and TR but Bill Vista doesn't say anything about steering geometry. Other that keeping the DL to BJ distance the same as the Pitman arm.


Parts Mike sells a non keyed arm that can be machined to whatever you want. Plus it adds steering angle to the right. If you look at the stock arm you see it isn't clocked straight.

I was able to use the Waggy backing plate and calipers.
Chevy spindle and Ford hub, rotor and lock out.
I do not remember what flat top knuckles I got though.
I want to say they were early Jeep.

93 YJ SOA 2" springs front, XJ springs rear w/main leaf added, High pinon 9 inch rear detroit locker front Dana 44 ARB 4.56 Gears, 36 inch Irok tires too much to list.
