Re: XJ to WJ Disc Brake Conversion Advice Needed

The brakes are really bad for my needs/build.....my question is, can I just swap out my XJs knuckles/brakes for the WJs without affecting anything else. I don't want to change anything in the steering department. Will my current steering components mate to the WJ knuckles/ball joints? Does my lift play into this at all? Thanks

I already gathered the parts for the rear upgrade from a JK
Are set-up's are close to the same (RE5.5/LA's) running the WJ/KJ brakes. I run a factory based steering (Currie Currect-lync) in the stock location for about 5yrs now without a single issue.
