Some 4 link and 9" ford pics......

Here are a few pics of the 9 ford rear end, triangulated 4 link and shock relocation that we fabbed up on my TJ this past week. Its done except brake lines and rerouting the exhaust. The axle has a strange nodular 3rd, 4.88s, full spool, 35 spline Moser shafts and 11.5 discs. The arms are RE superflex lower TJ control arms that have been lengthened and sleeved with 2OD X wall DOM tubing. The drive shaft is the front TJ shaft that we shortened and used a jump joint to the 1350 on the axle. All the brackets including the shock towers are plate TIG welded. The driveshaft only slides along the entire travel of the suspension. The pinion angle barely changes throughout the travel. The brackets are all above the bottom of the axle housing. Here are a few pics. Still deciding on what to do for the front axle. Its either a HP44 or a 60/9 hybrid. Dave

looks good, what size tires do you plan on running?

BTW might be time to invest in a flash for that camera.

Planning on running 37 x 12.50 IROKs. Yeah...my digital camera sucks. I can't afford a new one...I keep spendin my money on Jeep parts. Here's a few more pics from the build. The bottom arms in these pics are just dummy tubes for checking the travel and angles.

how much did the third and related hardware (pinion support/bearings) cost you? I'm thinking of building a 35 spline 9" in the future.

Looks good.. I'm sure someone will post up telling to to add more braces to the upper axle side link mounts but I bet they will hold up.

Planning on making another couple passes over all the tabs with the welder when its all set? Bit too much undercutting on a few of them.




Turning out pretty cool, good job on all the angles.

What kit are you using to convert to rear disks? Or are you using junkyard parts? Looks good! Judd

Thanks, As far as the welds go...my digital camera sucks. The welds are all TIG and they are perfect. There won't be any extra passes

The brakes are ford rotors, chevy calipers and flat stock 1/4" brackets. I'll use a wilwood adjustable proportioning valve. Dave

Thanks, I was pricing parts to build this exact axle when a local Jeeper decided to part out his XJ. He had a shop in Mo. build this axle. We jus cut the existing brackets off and made these. Dave

Got one pretty similar to that sittin in the garage. Really like the way it works offroad. My upper arms were mounted the exact same as yours. Never had any problems in a year and a half of wheelin. Recently added gussets to the mounts just in case..

Looks good.

I'm working on a similar setup for my 8.8.

Q: Did you support the bridge over the housing or is it just welded to the tubes?
