Re: Yota axle swap
I need to update my web-page, but you can use the stock e-brake. I just extended one side and made it fit! Kinda hard to explain, but it worked. If you try to connect the wires on the wheel it will come up short. You might beable to use the stock yota one? I didn't have it so I never tryed.
Brake lines will fit! I used the napa ones that everyone has. I have the part number for them if you need it. They are long, rears are 23" and fronts are around 21"
The rear spring pad will need to be moved inward 1" like you said. I got mine from summit racing, click on link to check it out...

Steering will be what ever you want. I know DP had a Z-bar on his, but I made my own half arsed x-over steering set-up. Used a stock yota drag link and made it shorter, connected it to the steering box and steering arm and Works good... was easy to make too. Check out web-page for more info and pic's of it.
Like I said I need to get off my lazy duff and get it updated, I keep saying I'm going to do it, but something else comes up! Sorry!
Anymore info about it, just e-mail and I'll try to help ya out as much as I can!
