I have done a search but found no answers. Does anyone have 4 link with colis or coilovers on Dana 44's. If so do you have any pictures of your setup. I am getting ready to start the conversion from my YJ's but it seems there isnt much room with my offset diffs.... Any help would be great!

If you are going coil overs or air shocks the offset means nothing, just some tabs on the axle. if you are doing standard coils then probably a little more work. Also get ready for your pocket book to take a hit. LOL

A couple:






My rear diff is centered, but even if it were offset, there'd still be plenty of room for the links.........

HTH,

BillJ-

What did you use for that rear driveshaft. I noticed a CV in the pic. I did a D44 swap in mine and I am trying to find a CV shaft to use without spending $300-400 for a custom.

Thanks ahead of time!

Do a toy CV and put the conversion joint at the pinion side and you are all good. Toy shaft $50-$75 conversion joint $25.

It's a CV out of a Toy pick-up, nothing special. The flange is a little different than the zuk t-case flange, so a little lathe and mill work was required. The rest is a just cut and weld job.......

that brings up a good point ... do you have the part number for the conversion joint? i've seen a few people say they were gonna post it up, but then they never came through with it in the end.

thanks scott

Yes... The brand and part # of the conversion joint would definately save some time @ the part store. I assume it is a front driveshaft used out of a Toy, correct? And lastly, what year Toy shaft is best?

84-85 front shafts i've heard are the better years, but don't know for sure ... someone else who actually uses them (instead of letting them sit on the floor for months at a time :rolleyes: ) can say for certain.

I will post it up tonight when i get to the shop
thanks scott!

Dont know if you still need to see some pics, but I searched to no end on here and never really found the same pics. :rolleyes: Anyway here is one of mine, it turned out pretty good and the leaf will mount to the top of it. Its made from 1/2" X 4" steel so I think it should hold up! :flipoff2:
