After waiting nearly 3 years I've given up on waiting for my fathers back to be well enough to finish our Jeep project. Now I just want to get it on the road. It needs the front axle installed. The axle is a Dana 44 and came out of a YJ already. I have also converted to shackle reversal at the same time. Problem is the last 2 times I tried to start bolting it up the measurements are off. I dont want to have it tracking crooked down the road.

SOOOO. Im looking for a few guys/gals who have done this before to halp me install the axle/suspension. I will have a buddy there who can weld, and all the tools including the welder, pizza, beer etc. I am willing to pay or trade for your help.

I will be available most any time you are. Its located in Clinton Twp. near 14 mile and Gratiot.

PM me if you think you can help

Thanks Derek

so you need front axle installed... are you going SOA or staying SUA? Are the brackets allready welded to the axle?

If it was already in a YJ, what's the problem?

The only thing you changed is the shackle reversal? Still spring under axle?

I am available to come take a look whenever you plan to have people over. You should be able to just bolt it all in if it came out of a YJ and is going in a YJ.

I agree... its staying sua. When I bolt it up and measure from side to side its off 3/4" I cannot find where this is. I also need to weld in the rear shackle mounts to the frame. I have an idea where about to mount but not positive. I know you need the shackles to be at a certain degree.

This should be easy but its been nothing but a headache
