Thanks for the info guys lots of things to consider I think for the $200 I can get them for it will be the way to go. My main goal is to ditch the n/t. bearlys205 do you have more pics of what the stance will look like? I am running 33x12.50 on 15x10 rims, what are you running?

I run scout II dana 44's in my YJ. castor was adjusted via rotating the inner knuckles. I do recommend you get some eccentric inserts for the upper ball joints to bring the camber back round to normal. the scout shafts are 30 spline rears and inners and 27 spline stubs. you can get 30 spline outers from warn if you want. I run yukon chromos in front and alloy chromos in rear. one thing I would do 100% is get yourself some heavy duty rpt retainer plates for the rear as the stock units are pretty thin. super scout specialists carries them for a good price. the other thing is to trim the steering knuckle to match the stock distances on your cj. the scout steering arms are great cause they are high on the knuckle but the arms are acres long and your turning radius will suck. we re-drilled the scout knuckles at 6.5" from the center of the ball joint and steering is great.

Good price, even if you go through all the work.

Yeah, I bet you do a lot of street/highway driving with your Lockright, "full spoll", and "beed locks", too. :tonka:
