Lots of work to do. Who wants to help?

Post  saxmanclay on 12/19/2012, 12:04 pm

Hey guys! The week during and after X-mas I have a lot of time off, specifically from Dec. 26-Jan 2. During that time I will be doing the following:

-Install new brakes (front and rear)
-Rear drum to disc conversion
-New brake lights
-New rear bumper with reverse lights

If any of you want to come over to my parents house and help out, it would be greatly appreciated. Even if it's just for half an hour to stop by and say hello or really get into the work, it would be awesome to see any of you. Let me know if you'll be stopping by in the comments. rendeer

Hey Clayton, what do you have for a rear end , 35/44?
Did you source parts or are you using a kit?
I did mine, I used parts from a 1998 v8 grand cherokee and e brake cables from a rubicon.

You have to swap wheel studs ( THE WHEELS WILL BOLT ON BUT ONLY BY A COUPLE OF THREADS) do not skip this step ! Unless you have after market axles with extra long studs.

You have to use studs for the grand cherokee 1995 to 1998 v8 with rear disc brakes, I forget year exactly,,, because the rotor you will be installing is alot thicker than the brake drum that you are replacing!!!
You should do while you have axles out and replace axle seals while you are there even if they are not leaking.
Good luck,, Mark..

I got the parts from a 96 Grand Cherokee. And good point about the wheel studs. My wife has the rear disc swap on her 8.25, and I noticed that she needs some slightly longer wheel studs too. I'll definitely pick some up before I start.

I got calipers from salvage yard when i got brackets and backing plates etc.
I used the calipers for a core at auto zone, now they have warranty and are rebuilt too.
You should get and make new 3/16 brake lines, just measure after e thing else is done.
I drilled holes in coil spring buckets to bolt on grand cherokee rubber hoses and then made new 3/16 lines.

I actually live in Lawrence now, but I'll be doing the work at my parents house. I could easily stop by one day and have you press them in. That would be fantastic.
