Replacing upper rear CA axle brackets

I figured I'd post here figuring more people here than on the stock forum have dealt with this

I'm running a 7' long arm and snapped an upper bracket, I have these coming - https://www.northridge4x4.com/part/c...ol-arm-bracket

Looking for any info on replacing these, googled around but didn't really find much

Can I just pull the tires put it on jackstands, cut the bracket off on one side and just bolt it to the CA and rest it on the axle and weld it on using the other side to keep in place? Then repeat on the other side?

Or do I need to be more carefull and really mark it out before I cut it off and be more persice putting it back

Probably doing it next weekend, any input would be great

Thx

If you have fixed arms you want to make sure you get the hole lined up correctly or you will change the pinion angle. If you need to change the pinion angle you could install the arm in the bracket and use a jack to set you pinion angle and tack the bracket in place. Pull the arm and weld it on there good. What size tire are you running as it looks like a lot of stress on that bracket and you may want to get a taller bracket for more separation which will hold better.

With 40" tires you want 10" of seperation between the upper an lower control arm mounts.

Dirtman,

You probably know this offhand and Iím curious. How much speperation is there on the rear axle upper and lower mounts with the stock set up?

And the front axle?

Seems from memory like it would be close to 10Ē but Iím not near my Jeep right now to measure.

*Im not trying to run 40Ē tires on a stock axle in case thatís what anyone is thinking lol Iím just curious what Jeep started with.
