I have a Rubicon which has 30 spline inner axle shafts in the front axle. I could have used the stock inner shafts with the new u-joints and outer stub axles provided by Yukon in its YA-WU-08 hub conversion kit, but I elected to upgrade to 30 spline 4340 chromoly axle shafts at the same time because there was no additional labor involved.I think I followed this pretty well, so I am assuming you didn't need to change the inner axles? Did you get lucky, or did you know you had the correct inner axles, and if so, how do I know if I have the correct inner axles?
I didn't mention it because it is discontinued and we're still looking for a knuckle to complete a pair. I am personally on a fan of the kit because it uses shit calipers and they need some serious help, the high steer arms don't take Ackermann into account, and for the money, all you are really getting is a locking hub. About the same as you get with the rest of them.I can't believe no one mentioned Reid Racing knuckle kit that allows you to use 1/2 ton outers. This is the kit I bought, just haven't installed it yet because it changes my lug nut pattern to 5 on 5-1/2 and I haven't bought new wheels. Also I have to do something about the rear axle.

I know I saw one someplace recently... Let me see if I can find it again.I didn't mention it because it is discontinued and we're still looking for a knuckle to complete a pair.

I need the right side. I ordered it from Dave's. We'll see if it actually ships.Dave's Off Road Supply may have both sides: http://www.davesoffroadsupply.com/Reid-Racing-JEEP-Heavy-Duty-Flat-Top-Dana-30--Rubicon-Knuckles_p_306.html
Or else I hope you want a left: https://autoplicity.com/1465021-reid-racing-heavy-duty-jeep-dana-3044-flat-top-conversion-k
Double check me on those part numbers.
There are several other options that move the caliper out.Hmm, i didn't realize they were discontinued. In my case I believe I had to go this route. I bought a Dyna Trac ProRock 44 that allows you to reuse your stock Dana 30/44 outers. What they don't tell you is when you turn the steering, the brake calipers hit the "C" cause the calipers to compress resulting in the loss of brake until you pump the brakes back up. So the larger rotor used with the Reid kit allows the caliper to be farther away and I hope will remedy my brake loss problem.
I assume someone offers a better brake caliber to remedy the shit calipers.
