Gonna get the rotors machined, and have to grab some ujoints cause the
Stub shafts from the ford Knucks are a 1/4" shorter,
Mocked up and works :D with new balljoints,

Went to Gary's today for a shot in the dark that MABEY!! They had a cj or something that would work cause my cj came without a booster, turns out there was a cj-7 in there!!! Couldn't believe it!! And the one thing I needed was there, a booster, that looked brand new, with the booster mount and a new master cylinder on it, SCORE!! So cheap too!! So it'll be going on soon as well as a bunch of new hard lines as well :D starting to come together :D
