Spring perch part numbers???

I am trying to track down two new spring perches for the scout 44 outback of my cj.

I know I need a 2.5" wide perch for the spring and a cutout for a 2.75 axle tube. I was going to order some RE mounts from the DC jeep guy (you guys seem happy with his stuff/service) but I can't find part numbers on his page or on RE's page.
The RE page is here http://www.rubiconexpress.com/dynami...p?folderid=275
And as I read I don't seem to see a perch for a dana 44 tube?? Am I just reading those wrong? They seem to be for a 2.5" spring, and a 2.5" tube as well.
On the DC page, he doesn't have any part numbers listed.

Any ideas??? I don't know where else to get them. Napa here in my town says I have to go to a dealer (which isn't happening, for that money I can get some good heavy mounts)

Thanks

JC Whitney has perches in different widths for around $18 a pair. You may have to grind the right radius into them. Also, try AA Manufacturing

I have the AA catalog in front of me.

AA-106-A Leaf spring pad. 3/16" steel 2.5" outside width, fits 3" tube. $7.59/each

I have used these perches on a D44 and a Model20HD.

Later,
Tom

Re: Spring perch part numbers???

OK, here is what I have for numbers.
The D44 tube measures 2.75"
The perches don't go all the way to the centerline of the tube, so they aren't called 2" perches. They are 2"

The ones I got for mine from DCs are Rubicon Express.
They are called 2" x 2" Antiwrap perches.
They fit perfectly. No grinding required except on the pumpkin side of the front diff because of the casting.

The centered perch is RE 1930

On the pumpkin side of the front diff, you might need an off-set perch to clear the raised part of the casting. If so,
The Off-Set perch is RE 1920

Pics and info are in the link posted in the opening post of this thread.

BTW, DC did better on the price than what is on the RE website. But, YMMV.

Re: Spring perch part numbers???

cool thanks for the info, I was just assuming it would have been labeled a 2 3/4" perch, but my logic is not that great at times.

Now I just need to hunt around and find a good price.

Thanks again!

I got some at a Dodge dealer for less than $10.00/pair. They fit fine on my d44.

I'm using the one's from the Mopar catalogue. They were inexpensive and worked just fine on my Scout Dana 44.
