AzTJ I'd pass. Would probably cost you $600 to get all the brackets welded on, and then you either need spacer adapters or new wheels for another $100-$400 cost... plus the front axle is a Low Pinion. Plus 4.56's are not that much for 4cyls... especially if you plan on running 35's(?)... I'd get something with at least 4.88's or better yet 5.13's.

IMO - I'd only consider a HP front axle for swapping.

MikalCarbine I assume you are on a d35 rear and a 2.5L?

pakman55 The only reason I was thinking was becasue they were cheaper than getting it regeared and had the right gears. There is a guy on the forum who makes 8.8's cheaper tha ECGS. I'm not sure if I am even going to upgrade right now, I am looking to run 33's

4Jeepn Don't forget you will new rims as the bolt pattern is 5 on 5.5. As for the kits the they run 300 to 400 based on fast serach. figure few hundred in labor as well.. Have you thought about swapping in a ford 8.8 and keeping the 30? Bolt In Axles - Complete Axle Assemblies - Axle Housings

pakman55 thanks for the info...i dont have access to a welder myself..How much do you think it would cost me to have somebody make it "bolt in" ready?

MikalCarbine They'll require some cutting/welding to get them to bolt up to your jeep, that's all I can tell you

Help with axels

Alright I found this on the local clubs sight...They seem good to go, pretty good price, correct gears, and I would spend more than that on a regear anyways. How much work would be required to install them?
