Dana 44 Install 93xlt

Well I just wanted to let you all know I just started gathering my part to do my SAS. I paid $250.00 for a 79 Bronco frame with a Dana 44 hp and two rear axles. There not in the best of shape but with I little bit of work and some cleaning I should be on my way. I found a 1974 ford 2wd at the wreckers and he wants $50.00 for the coil buckets. :burnout:

the coil buckets i found are very hard to find a stable place to mount them if i were you and this is what i did is move the spring plates in on the axle it looks cleener and you can get more flex. what size and load springs you gonna run?

Well I tried to up load my picks but I was unable to. I'm still getting my stuff together to do the swap and I still have to rebuild the axles I’ve been pretty busy with work and yes I’m going full width and I’m thinking about using Sky Jackers 5.5 coil springs.
