16. We’ve covered setting up TJ axle brackets in several past issues, so we’ll just hit the highlights. After finding the axle centerline and setting the housing at the proper pinion angle for your application, measure the angle and distance of the brackets on the original axle and transfer them to the brackets on the new housing. We had to massage the radius of the Rusty’s Off-Road control arm brackets a little to match the larger diameter of the Dana 60 axletube, but otherwise the brackets went on smoothly. Setting the pinion angle is an important factor here, so if you’re doing other major modifications, such as changing lift height, it might be best to leave the brackets tacked in place until the axle is set up under the vehicle.
