But, What did you do with your Brakes? (As in master cylinder)
Because you went from drum to disk. (Pressure is different)

And also did you put your sway bar back in?
If so how.

Haven't done anything with the proportioning valve, but the disc brakes work better than the drums. I'll expect a significant improvement when I do a WJ master cylinder/brake booster swap. Just waiting on more money.

Didn't bother with the swaybar, I don't even know how a stock rear XJ swaybar is set up, but I know it's darn near useless.

I don't even have an e brake handle inside my jeep, so therefore no cables, and therefore, I removed all the 8.8 drum e-brake crap that made the rotors stick. If I had(and may in the future) kept it, I'd have used the stock cables looped around with a u-bolt clamp thing, I'm sure you've seen it before.

So my impact socket would fit on it. That's alot of thread to tighten by hand. It looks way cleaner anyways, those were long u-bolts.
