My buddy bought a 92 YJ with a sagged out 4" lift and what we thought was the rare factory dana 44 rear
Well this past weekend we tried to replace the lift (RE 4.5" extreme duty) and after dealing with all the typical rusted bolts and rusted out frame repairs we discovered that the spring perches on the rear axle are approximately 1.5" too far apart . So we find the numbers and hit the web and discover that its a dana 44 from an MJ with 3.07 gears the wms - wms is right so all we gotta do is move the spring perches in and set the pinion angle bolt it up then try it out
Then a bit more web wheeling reveals that the offset pinion will eat the double cardan drive shaft ? . Then the local 4x4 supplier tells me that its next to impossible to find replacement axle shafts for this axle ?
So is it worth fabbing this axle to fit a YJ or do we go a different route ?
