IRO says 32 spline for WJ TC, not totally sure if they all match or not. I've only ever had the 242.

discovered the source of my scritch-scratch from the brake rotors. It's rotational but intermittent, indicating some misalignment. First I suspected the dust shield, then the seating of the pads, and...

the IRO swap yoke is 32, so I'd imagine that's correct. 242 is my favorite. You'll obviously need an air or electric impact to do the swap if you're going that route - I have the Milwaukee mid torque...
