Thats the right one to start with BUT...

your YJ unless changed already doesnt have 3.73 gears
your prolly still gonna have to move the spring perches to bolt it in

Ya im getting 4.88 front and back but the spring perch is usually on the other side this one looks like it will work tho most 8.8 perches are setup for spring over axle but on that axle in the link it is axle over spring.

Your not pickin up what Im putting down.....

You WILL most certainly have to cut the perches off and move them in order for you to bolt the axle in. Every explorer 8.8 with DB I have seen has been axle over spring just like that one.
