Whatever your final choice, just do a hardware store TC drop for now to fix the vibes. Should be <$20 including new hardened metrics to replace the original bolt/stud setup. Just longer bolts plus some misc big nuts, steel spacers, washers, whatever you can find to squish in there as spacers.

Have you driven it yet? This upgrade made a huge difference on my Jeep. And now you’ll never have to adjust those damn adjuster screws in the drums ever again. Did you install longer wheel studs at the same time? I know mine were awfully short looking after the swap. The rotors are noticeably thicker than the drums were, so you lose some stud length.

I bought the correct length studs but the splined sections were too thick to pound into the chromo axles so I just used the shorter studs

Trimmed the front end caps and removed the "spoiler" look and factory fog lights.

Did shocks and transmission filter on my dad's v8 awd WJ. Makes me really want one for a daily.

I miss my old 00' V8 WJ with heated leather seats. It was more comfortable than my couch. Unfortunately it dropped a valve.

It must be the angle of your pic. The driveshaft angle looks STEEP and those spacers look LONG.

Inch-ish I’m told. The driveshaft looks unhappy imo. I don’t understand how we got here with a stupid AAL. There are no blocks or extended shackles in that pack. It’s literally a full length and a short AAL slipped in to the ragged out factory pack. Gah, so frustrating. I really thought it would settle out some. This isn’t the look I was going for...
