A quick list of things you'll need for an 8.8:
- The axle itself with appropriate gears (or be prepared to regear both axles like I am)
- A perch kit with a welder to weld the new perches on
- Conviction on whether you want to go SOA or not. If you do want to do spring over, now would be a time to do it.
- Plan on rebuilding all of the incidentals (rotors/pads/etc.) if you're getting a junk yard axle.
Doing this myself right now but going a few steps above with chromoly shafts and C-Clip eliminator.
