I bought a 2 wd 1998 Jeep Cherokee Classic a couple of weeks ago and have been fixing the odd little problems that come with a used vehicle. Well this one is really confusing...the previous owner swapped the front axle for a 91 front axle which took a trip to the dealership with rotor in hand to find out.Well I know have the correct rotor to fit this axle but I need to find the correct brake pads.Do any of you Jeep guru`s know of a site that I can search drawings of of the different year brake systems so that I can match this set of pads up? Thank`s for any help...Rob

Try Quadratec here. There's a diagram of the overall front system there, but it also shows the breakdown of what pads will fit what years.

There were two types of brakes that I've come across. One type, that I've found on the older XJs, the pads attached to the knuckles in a "tab A --> slot A" type of arrangement. The caliper then slides over top of the pads.

The other setup, the pads clip directly into the caliper, then the loaded caliper bolts to the knuckle.

Both of the pads look VERY similar but there are small differences. I compared them to a set of TJ D30 pads I have.

If the axle is from a 91, I'd ask for pads for a 91.
