you can buy a drop in d44 front or a 9" front that is complete with everything you need including the same bolt pattern for the wheels

i would get an 8.8 for the rear if you look in the right places you can get them for around $100
but if you do not have the neccessary skills to swap coil buckets and brakets go with a complete drop in axle or find a stock ZJ rear d44
