Axle upgrade with brakes and steering... long
So I got my scout home to start the 44 swap, and I got to thinking, now would be the time to uprgrade my steering too. I have manual right now, and would really like to go power. I have been trying to scroung parts for a stock jeep setup, but its either somewhat costly or just not available where I live junkyard wise. What other setups do you guys run? I was interested in the rock ram or somthing similar. It has to be dot legal (I drive the jeep on the roads sometimes too!) and not outrageously expensive. Or what about robbing parts off of donor vehicles? There are zero jeeps up here to raid parts off of, but any other vehicles have the right pumps and steering boxes??
Next question, a while ago I scrounged a power brake booster, with mouinting bracked and master cylinder off a cj. I have 4 wheel drums on my cj, so I never put it on thinking the proportioning might not work right since it was off a cj with disk/drum. I am going to put this on the jeep when I do the axle swap and am just checking to make sure there arn't any obvious reasons not too??? The scout 44 have I believe 11" drums out back and the standard disks up front.
Whew, my fingers hurt...
