Pickle 2.0 - Full Width SAS/SOA 4406 swap

Well.. once again I've caved in to peer pressure.. you guys are a bad influence!!!

I've decided that this summer will see me do an Electric shift 4406 conversion aswell as a full width SAS/SOA conversion.

Now, I've been offered the entire front end from a 79 bronco for $400 or the entire from end from an 89 Ramcharger for $100...

My intentions are to use coil springs and RAs up front not leaf springs,

So which Dana 44 will be best? Can I put the spring seats on the Dodge axle? The Dodge set up comes with the vacuum set up, but I'll be switching to an elec locker at a later date anyway.

The cost is not the issue, I want to use the correct stuff first off,

Si

I'll be dealing with the same issues once I get started on my SAS, V8,C6, 1356 manual case swap. All new angles and lengths for everything. Lol.

I still haven't started on my 4406 e-shift in my sport but after doing the manual version in my mountaineer im not at all worried about the electric version fitting, its gonna be tight but I would say if the tank needs to be moved back it may only be an inch or two,

So... we ran into a slight problem with the tone ring.. now looking for another carrier with the narrow pin... must have the tone ring in tact...
