Re: axle setup-HA! is anything every final?
Hmm. 650 isn't too too bad considering you get gears, posi and rear discs, but still got to buy then narrow a front then get gears etc. OK, IF the ford van does have 4.10 gears in it i'm pretty sure I will use that axle. I'm pretty sure it's narrower than a normal F/S axle, so I won't cut it down. What kind of posi did they put in d-60's from the factory? was it any good? I might have to live with that for a little while until I can afford a locker.
now to the front axle. Theres a couple of deceased jimmys around with 10 bolt and d44 fronts. Sure I'd like to use the d44, but the one I have doesn't have lock-in hubs or brakes and has 3:73 gears. I have to find it too, i got a feeling it might be underwater (LONG story). Then theres these 10 bolts. I know the rear c-clip design sucks, but there's nothing that wrong with the fronts, right? They have a 8.5 inch ring gear, and i have at least 2 of them with decent brakes. Would these be worth narrowing for the front? I have access to pretty much all the tools I would need between home, friends, and school. Thanks a lot Elusive and jeepgod, you guys are a great help!!
