Supposedly some YJs came with HD 6 leaf springs. I've never seen one. But Crown sells stock replacement HD 6 leaf springs for a decent price, I used them when I went SOA. They rode and flexed well.

Guess it depends where you're at. The first junk yard I went to buy one at had 4 of them with 4.10s. 3 with limited slip and 1 open diff, ranging from 70,000-120,000 miles. $200 each.

8.8s are easily found with 4.10s. What matters is what gears you have in the D30. They'll need to match.

The problem with the D35 is strength. It just isn't designed to handle tires that are bigger than stock. Most people draw the line at 31-33" tires.

The most common swap is an 8.8 from a 96-01...

You definitely need new springs. Those are pretty sagged. And a traction bar in the rear to prevent it from happening again. Try to get HD stock springs, or the Rubicon Express 1.5" SOA leaves.

Sounds like you should just throw new shocks on it, along with a traction bar. I never ran a sway bar when I was SOA. And do crossover/hi steer if it hasn't been done already.

That rear track bar...

The biggest thing is to fix the steering, if it's still stock. The stock drag link can hit the spring when it's SOA. There are multiple kits out there. Rocky Road makes a full high steer kit, and...

Be careful with those 10" wide rims and 10.5" wide tires. With the rims being as wide as the tires, there's not a lot of pressure on the bead. I've seen that combo work fine on the streets, but you...

Those rims will work great for 31s. Stepping up to 33s might cause rubbing, and 35s will definitely rub on the springs with them though. Just mentioning it, because I know you'll be wanting them...

Less backspacing means more tire outside of the fender. So a rim with 2.5" of backspacing will sit 3" further out than 5.5" of backspacing, if they are the same rim width.

Backspacing is measured...

In order to make up for the "uneven" wear on the 8" wide rims, air down until you get full tread contact. Another benefit to airing down a little is a softer ride. I think my 35x12.50x15s MTZs on...

StanF, you're right. But with an F250 axle, new steering is needed anyway. And all SOA needs in the front is new steering and new leafs. So swapping to SOA with this axle is extremely easy, with no...

And sticking with half ton axles won't let to keep your wheels, as half ton Ford's are 5x5.5, and half ton Chevy is 6x5.5. The only way to keep your 5x4.5...

For an F250 front axle, you want 77.5-79. They had high pinion, disc brakes, and leaf spring perches already in the exact place you need them.

For an F150 front axle, I believe it's 75-77 that...

A 73 should be low pinion, drum brakes, and possibly closed knuckle. It's one I'd pass on. 1977.5-79 are ideal if possible to find. They're disk brake, high pinion, and open knuckle.

Agreed that you don't have to have the same exact width. A rear axle is usually an inch or two narrower than a front axle anyway. What I was concerned with is when he was looking at the 8 lug 44 and...
