You don't have to go through all of that. Call up NOVAK. They make bushing that will fit your application. All you should have to do it swap out the bushing. It is simple. You may have to check the length of your input shaft to the old one. The new one may have to be cut down, but you can do this yourself with a hack saw and a good file. This has been done by others on this forum and the Jeep Forum.
