      I bought generic perches from a local 4x4 shop and grinded on them to fit the axle tube. I payed $12 for the pair. But if you wanna go spend $45 plus shipping for some that say they are for the 8.8 off a website, then go right ahead. :D

      the whole 4405 w/shift motor, or just the shift motor, both shift motors were tested and work fine.

      Well im not sure i might need both the t case and the shift motor.... when i took my old shift motor off i could only turn the t case a little bit manually... does that sound right or does that sound like my t case is locked up? can you give me prices for both?
      thanks alot

      Make sure you have the truck in Neutral with the e-brake on when you try to shift the t-case by hand ...you should be able to put a pair of vise grips on the selector and enguage both positions, try turning the input, and front output shafts while trying to enguage it, if it still doesnt go into gear, the t-case may be shot. Which front output shaft do you have on yours? the round cup w/cv joint, or half moon type for cardan joints?

      Lizard, I'm assuming the rear brake hose is the same between the XLT and the Sport.

      Did you use Stainless Steel Extended Brake lines?

      I think I read that somewhere...I may be wrong...

      Do you have a Part# for the Rear and who you got it from, I put the Bronco knuckles on the front and have the Bronco tubes I'm going to try and fit to the axle for the front...I need to locate a Stainless line for the rear. What length did you use?

      Thanks.

      I think both Lizard and I accomplished this by simply unbolting the brake line on the driver side spring perch and routing the hard line above the spring. Doesn't exactly follow the lines above the spring, but it does the trick and still allows for all the flex you'll get out of those springs.

      Awesome, this is the first answer I've gotten about this, and I've searched the entire site. I'd like to see at least another option on this but it seems like this is a solution to my problem. There are quite a few gen 2 guys that have done the SOA in the rear I'm pretty sure...

      That's the same way i did mine too. Just take a wire tire or something and hang it if need be.

      Did you put the diamond plate around it, because you cut a hole in the hump plate? Is that to keep the air out/in, or is it for looks?
