RE Drop brackets

Recommended Posts

My XJ has a 6 inch lift using RE drop brackets (they stopped the death wobble). I'd like to move this suspension onto my MJ, but the MJ has a slightly different control arm mount. Is it still possible to use the RE drop brackets? Looks like either I would only use the front half and do a homemade brace, or I would possibly cut off the stock brace on the MJ control arm mount. Maybe then the whole RE assembly would fit. Let me know if you have an answer.

The brace on the MJ control arm mounts is welded onto the OUTSIDE of the "frame" rail at the pockets. The brackets fit up inside the control arm pockets. I don't see how the frame gusset could interfer with the drop brackets. I had a Trailmaster kit with brackets on my 88 MJ, it was on when I bought it. It's my understanding that the RE brackets are copies of the Trailmaster, so I think they should fit.
