scout axles

I have a set scout axles out of a 77 scout II, I have the hard part done, caster adjusted, pinion angle, spring perches, etc. etc. My only problem is steering, does anyone know the best way to get tire rods and so forth, I mean is the best way to make them, have them made, will any other vehicles work?? If makeing them will work what did you use to do it with?

Re: scout axles

Most any machine shop or decent garage can make them for you. MOst guys redrill to 3/4 ton Chevy ends, and run them in a sleeved (2 pieces of pipe welded together) setup. You can jack from them this way and I have not heard of one breaking. A lot of the online shops also sell them, in any length you need.
