8.8 confusion
97 98 99 00 01 EXPLORER 8.8 REAR AXLE END JEEP 3.73 31 | eBay

Can someone tell me if this axle doesn't need any modification because it looks like from the first picture on the pallet the left springs are under the axle so if should go and bolt up right with my jeep yj someone tell me if this axle would work or if i would have to switch the brackets still

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.
