Re: Need Advice on Axle Upgrades
i would go with the wagoneer axles.... you will want to find a 79 or older wagoneer for the front axle... actually 1974-1979... dont go older than 74.. those are p.o.s....
for a rear axle... 1980-1983 wagoneer, 1984-1991 grand wagoneer.. just keep it full size.. you could get lucky and find a 74-79 wagoneer that did not have the quadratrac transfer case.. all automatics in that range will be TH400's with the offset rear axle for that transfer case... while if you find a manual.. then its rear axle will be center.. and will work for you..
i can get a set of these axles for $300.. all day long.. but wagoneer's seem to be plentiful out here in our yards.. with all the seashore fishing....
