Not to sound dumb, but Do you need front track bar? I ordered soa perches, sway bar disconnects and brake lines. I was going to measure for shocks when it's done. Didn't know if I should order a track bar drop.

Another question, would it be beneficial in anyway to set the springs not in the center hole. I noticed the perches have 3 holes.

Some say yes, others no. For me, I leave the front one on stock width axles but delete it if I go bigger since its tons more stable with full width axles in it. It doesn't limit the travel as far as I am concerned, considering I can stuff the tires all the way into the metal of the fender with it on.

Just to lengthen wheelbase I suppose, I am old school though....put it in the center so you know everything fits right

About them accusing you of being wrong I know it's a little late but I just read it. My old yj was soa no high steer or anything just drop pitman arm. Heck I even had just drop transfer case with stock d shaft. My buddy has a 93 soa plus 2 also with no high steer. It never gave us any problems, I ran mine hard and my buddy really rubs his hard like jumps it and stuff. And it will still run down route 20 fine. I drove mine a hundred miles one way to work on a regular basis. It angers me that they would kick someone like you off there. They don't know what there missin haha.

Another question in the stock four cylinder they have 4.11 gears right???? So will you be fine running 4.10 gearing. May be a dumb question I dunno.

The front one was a 2.63 ballistic joint and the rears are 2.63 bushings in DOM tubing

Im not sure exactly why it screws so much stuff up, but I can tell you that I will never reverse a set of shackles again. Not only is the steering squirely the braking is also scarey, and the whole stuffing the tire into the body is never a good option

We ran one from sams offroad way back in the day before I knew how to fab stuff and dad tore it off 3 times before we scrapped it. I guess I am just old school and believe its better to attach a traction bar to both sides of the axle.....I stick with what works for me

i need an expert opinion on this since i cant decide, picking up the 8.8 tomorrow with the disk brakes 3.73s, ordered the ECGS 8.8 swap kit, and 1310 flange adapter, my D30 front has 3.55s, found a pair of 3.55 gears for the 8.8 for 75 bucks, now, do i regear my 8.8 to 3.55 for $75 and just spring under it, or do i spring over it, leave it 3.73 and regear the D30 to 3.73 and spring over it while its out? cause i can spring under it for cheap, just gears diff cover brake lines and be done, or go big while its out, is it alot to do the spring over? you made it look easy, but i dont have a fab shop, just a welder and tools
