Billabob Posted March 11 Share Posted March 11 So the time has come to give my front suspension/steering some love. I would like to swap out my front differential for a high pinion non-cad D30, convert to crossover steering, and swap out the brakes for the bigger WJ calipers. Now I already have 17" wrangler wheels and I would like keep the front end as simple as possible, ideally keeping everything as close to a stock WJ setup as possible. From what I've read, the WJ front axle is wider (Great, fine with that), has wider spacing for spring perches (not great, rewelding will be difficult), and uses CV axles (on the fence about this one, probably stronger than my 5-260 joints). Has anyone figured out a way to run 5 on 5 wheels without the whole hub/rotor/adapter mess? Is there a 5 on 5 hub that has the correct spacing for WJ rotors/brakes that is also compatible with XJ u-joint axles? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
