i swapped in an 8.8. if you can weld, it was pretty easy. all i did was cut off the old perches, then weld em back on in the right place. i franken-rigged my stock ebrake cables and used the exploder spring plates and ubolts. i cut off part of the spring plate and used that for shock tabs. the bulk of the expense from the whole swap/soa project was in gears

i left the 30 in the front, and its been welded for a few years now with (knock on wood) no probs.

For the YJ application they are all easy to install. Especially if you end up with a front with flat top knuckles that can easily handle a hi-steer arm. Main thing you need to know if NO D35's in the rocks.
