Loose ends (SOA)

I am on the down stroke on my SOA d44 swap. It looks awesome, pictures to follow. I have a question about the rear parking brake cables. I am using a rear d44 from a ScoutII, my CJ parking brake cables are too short. Actually the cables are not the problem, its the sheathing that covers the cable. The sheathing keeps the axle from dropping 100% at full droop. What have any of you done for this? Aftermarket?? Swap from another vehicle?? What works, I want to keep it as factory as possible.

Thanks

I took mine off. Someday I'll get something worked out to put it back in. One idea is to use a passenger side cable on the driver's side too.

Re: Loose ends (SOA)

Nate,

I'm very interested in seeing those pictures. Especially if you used a Waggy 44 front. I'll be swapping an Isuzu 44 rear and Waggy 44 front under my Jeep soon. I've not yet decided whether to go SOA or SUA. I'm concerned about the housing grind required for the Waggy 44 front. Did you outboard the springs? If so, did you use custom hangers or aftermarket? What springs and shocks did you go with?

Thanks,
Lee

Re: Loose ends (SOA)

I will put them up ASAP. Yeah I had to outboard the spring hangers and went shackle reversal at the same time. I did not have to grind too much to get the spring perch on the top of the 44 housing. I am waiting on a friend to weld up the chromoly tube axle gussets that I installed, he has to use some special tig rod for welding to cast. I will keep you posted.
