Re: Leaf Springs
Rodney, I know where there is a yard in midcoast Maine that has 4-5 Scouts, and the guy will probably let the axles go fairly cheap. If you want, I have torches and we can get them on any weekend as he's only closed on Thursdays. The yard is probably 170 miles from Calais. Not sure of the gear ratios, but I did see a set with 3.54's, not sure about the 4.10's or 4.27's though as some have no tires and are hard to get under. I asked about a rear Ford D60 (8 lug) with 4.10's and he said $100 though, as long as I take it out. If it's a long drive there and back in a day, our house is in the area or we could tent camp, it's a nice area with some nice 4 wheeling trails.
Come to think about it, there is a yard up here near Winter Harbor that has two Scouts, not sure of the ratios or how much the guy wants for them. I asked him about front CJ springs (he has a junk auto CJ), and he wanted $50 each for them if I remove them, kinda pricey (His reply was "Well, that's 1/2 the price of new"). Let me know and we'll go get them.
