We wrapped things up by bolting the Chevy calipers onto the Parts Mike backing plates and capped it all off with a pair of Warn Premium manual hubs that we had hanging around for a few years. The small-bearing Spicer 706528X spindle allows the right offset of the Ford hub/rotor assembly for use with the Chevy backing plates and calipers. We'll be running our current Currie Enterprises Currectlync steering setup on our XJ in the foreseeable future, so we'll install some 1/2-inch fine-thread bolts into the Reid knuckles to keep the high-steer mounting threads clean in case we ever decide to add high-steer.
