HP44 in a yj

OK throwing a HP44 out of a 77 Ford (welded wedges)into my 89 YJ. I know I have to outboard my springs but my question is how far out do I need to go. Since there are no perches on the axle I have nothing to go off of. I have tried searching and have found nothing on the distance of the outboard. any advice?

If you're finding no info maybe you don't have to outboard? I'm outboarding for my Chevy axles because one perch is cast in teh diff. I've never really researched it but I was under the impression that full size ford axles were a super easy swap.

Now to answer your question: If you do have to outboard then find the center of your axle and measure out from there to find how close you CAN put a perch near the diff. (measure to center of perch) double that and you've got how far to space springs. I'm drunk and I figured it out. you're not flying it to the moon
