9. With the brake calipers and backing plates hung from the framerails, and the control arms, track bar, shocks, sway bar and driveshaft all unbolted, the rear axle was ready to part ways with our LJ.

Like the front, all of the rear-brake hardware will get reused, and since we were able to keep the brake lines attached and simply unbolt the junction block from the axle, brake bleeding was circumvented.
