Well, my frontend spat out another set of near new wheelbearings but thankfully BCAA covered the 100 km tow home..
So I am also SERIOUSLY considering a 95-up XJ D30 swap into mine, and I will be watching this thread a lot more closely. The reason being is that the newer D30s got the 297x (D44) v-joints versus the much smaller 260x, and they have 1 pc axles. They should be on par strength-wise with the D35 frontend.
How far along is your swap and if it is fabbed in, how do you find the YJ leafs for height and ride? I'd like to ideally stick to about a 2 - 3" lift and that's it as I don't want my truck sitting any taller. What shackles are you using, and how about the steering and its effectiveness. Thanks. LR
