if you are going to use Jeep long arm parts, then i would take the C wedges off all together...
C wedges and Inner C's are two different things. The Inner C's refer to the C shaped parts of the axle that the Balljoints bolt to.

Yes I meant the inner Cs. Not wedges, those will be ground off soon.

I dont think I would need to cut them either. hmm I am hoping I will not need to.

I am going to use the current jeep long arms.

I'm going to be cutting down my D44 from fullsize Chevy width to wagonneer width... it shouldn't be that hard at all. The only issue for you is that you'd have to get custom axle shafts made.

IMO even with a good angle finder it can be off a couple degrees. how would you know if it is right?

Oh, yeah. I know a magnetic angle finder may not be the most accurate tool, but it's worked for lots of people before me.
