Re: Ok this is prob a stupid question
the most common solid axle swap for our Broncos is the coil sprung Dana 44 out of 78-79 Broncos and 73-79 fullsize half-ton pickups. they are cheap and easy to swap since the coils line up with our coil towers, but you do have to work out the radius arm mounts and add a trac-bar and frame bracket for it. There is no solid axle that will just "bolt in", though Fabritech does offer a kit that makes adding the D44 a bolt-on experience, but prepare to pony up 2 grand plus the axle and tidbits to go that route.
By the way, you might want to go crawl around under your trucks and figure out why that rear axle wont work up front before you undertake a project like a SAS [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
