ZJ Rear Axle Bracket Kit W/Shock Kit (3.00 Inch Tube). Clayton Off Road high clearance rear axle bracket kit provides strength, clearance and improved ride quality over OEM style brackets. Whether your installing a new axle, or replacing your stock bent or broken OEM brackets, this is the axle bracket kit for you.
The strength comes from 1/4 laser cut lower control arm brackets. Clearance is addressed by moving all the brackets flush with the bottom of the tubes. By moving the brackets flush with the bottom of the tubes, you flatten out the lower control arm angles which will improve overall ride quality. However this will push your axle farther back. In some situations this may help for some lifted vehicles. Please make sure your axle can be pushed back approximately 1 inch. Otherwise your suspension will need to have adjustable control arms so you can thread in the lower arms to compensate.
The kit also comes with a shock conversion kit. Depending on what length shocks you run you may need to add limiting straps or extend the coil bucket post. This gives you a high clearance lower axle mount. A new upper shock bracket welds into he unibody providing new shock mounts. Depending on shock length, lift height, and desired uptravel you may need to extend your upper oem spring post.
The lower coil bucket comes with a built in spring retainer. Because of the triangulated shock setup this kit will ONLY work with our 4 link suspension kit.
