    Default lock out hubs

    i got the Warn lock out hub kit. Its meant for a TJ/XJ/ZJ. I have a WJ totally different bolt pattern and brake setup i know.

    well long story short I think I am to the point of machining a set of WJ rotors to fit. The rotors that came with the kit are a standard set of rotors that have been machined down to a .25'' mounting flange.

    in my research i have found the wrangler and such have a m/l off set of the mounting flange from the rotor surface where my WJ has a H. My thinking was to have a set of WJ rotors re bolt patterend to 5x4.5 to match the hub. then put it all together and see how much i need to machine the mounting flange so the rotors will fit back inside the caliper braket.

    unless somebody knows of a safe way to space my caliper out from the bracket?

    let me know if you want to go that route. I think I still have my factory outer c's, calipers and rotors from my Rubi.

    The outers are held on by the ball joints. Your are talking about the inner "c"s. These basically the same as the older dana 30 "c"s. The outer are normally referred to as knuckles.
