You can always lower your tire pressure a little bit to help cushion the ride.

well i put the m/t's on, i cleaned the rims up with some 3m alloy polish, i think it did a great job.

then i went out and took some pictures behind a local store that has been closed down for years.

Actually that reid or reider racing makes D30 high steer knuckles that bolt outer D44s to them.

there a company that makes a bolt on bracket for the right side knuckle. JC off road maybe?

this will allow the YJ steering to stay intact but raise the drag link up above the spring.

let me see if i can dig up the info.

front swaybar = no front flex
as you can see the JD traction bars really don't effect the wheel travel that much.


paint will be soon, i would like to get new parts on the front before i even start.

I didnt mention them because you cant keep the 5x4.5 lug pattern with them since they use D44 outers.

Pick up a set of WJ Dana 30 knuckles, they are very similar to the teraflex knuckle but can be had from a junkyard for alot cheaper.
