Alright, here's the deal: I have a '97 TJ 4 banger auto. I got hit in the rear quarter panel and this pushed the right side of the axle tube up slightly (ever so slightly). All suspension geometry is fine. All mechanics I have talked to said that the axle is fine, but it will cause more stress on my spider gears and cause them to wear a little quicker. However, I want to add a 2" lift, go to 32"s and run a rear locker. If this axle isn't gonna cut it, I don't wanna spend the money on it. But in the same breath, if it will, I could definitely use the money elsewhere in the Jeep. I have found a Ford 8.8 rear with 4.10s and a Trac-lok for $750 + shipping, but it would require for my bracketry to be swapped on to it. How much (approximately) would it cost to have this axle installed in my Jeep? I've also found a brand new Dana 44 with brakes, 4.10s, and a Detroit for $1500, but I don't wanna (read: can't) spend this much. Lemme know what u think. Thanx!
