I saw a place online that you could order some from. I think i found the link through 034x4's pages, but can't remember. If you search using "spring purches" it may come up.

When I did the spring under on elliott's truck he got some from a local "truck bling bling" shop for ~15$. And they had them in stock. Just tell them you need 8.8 perches, they are all one size. Hell the perches on my 31 spline 8.8 i cut off of elliott's 7.5 lol.

Thats not true. The 31spline 8.8 has a larger diamter axle tube than the 28spline version. You were probably able to use the other ones because they were cut off at a larger diamater.

Thanks guys. I'm going to pick them up from Currie, I forgot about them and they are right down the street.

Also, suspension connection probably can hook you up.

I did a soa on samuri that belonged to my buddy and he got his from a trailor shop. it worked for him cuz those axles are like toothpicks, but probably not for an 8.8. just thought id share my story.

You can also try mountain off road products. I can't remember the website, but they have spring perches as well as shock mounts and other good stuff.

Actually it is true, i ground down the welds and re-welded them. The perches were not modified. I know the tube size difference. 31 spline tubes are as big as 60's and 28 splines are alittle bit bigger than 7.5's.

If it bothers you that much, tell them you need 31 spline 8.8 perches.........

See here's the problem with that, they are sold as 1.5" diamater, 2" diamater, 2.5" diamater, 3" diamater, 3.25" diamater.... Thats how all the web sites list them, not by application. If they would list them as "8.8 31 spline" then it would be easy.

So riddle me this, why does the FX4 rear end need larger U-Bolts?

jason think a secound here... www.suspensionconnection.com
Think as second... IM NOT A ****ING PSYCIC.. it could have been anything, not all companies use thier name as thier web address. Somebody suggests a company with out any contact information.. well **** come on now how the hell should I know how to find them. Sure I could google it or start guessing sites...

Yea I'm in a bad mood...

My 31-spline is 3 1/4" at the perches. I believe that the 28-splines are 3".
