Re: Axle choices?
First, My o2 your only realy choices are either Toy or 44 both have been debated 1000 times, adavantage 1 toy come with 4:10 and can go to 5:71 all on the same carrier, 44 come with roughly 3:55 and you can go to 5:89 if you chnge the carier.
when its lifted both, either way you'll need some sort of steering x-over or histeer. you can generally find some one selling there toy x-arm for a toy in the $80-$160 range or fab your own with 2 pass side arms I do believe you can get a zuk to toy drag link through roadless gear, made by Sky. or go full histeer.allpro has arm on sale right now for I think $199. normally $249 or by there x-arm for $199.
youll have a little less fab to do on the spring hangers going Toy cnter pin alighnment hole only needs to be offset 3/8" outward to straighten your springs out. Track gears,again my o2 I wouldnt install just the 3rd in the sami housing allthough the tack/kick housing will bolt into the sam housing its alluminum and one good smack offroad and its toast, It will not fit in the rear so you need 2 front trac/kick 3rds and you need to swap the gears from one set into you zuk rear with a can and spacer, redably avail. @ any vendor the stock trac/kick gears go from 4:30,4:62,5:12, and on other that I dont recall, aftermarket through calmini you can get 4:57, discontinued 5:38, but they do offer 5:83, but I m guessing the pinion head is the size of a pencil eraser not very strong.
Since you say you have had toys in the past then you know you can prety much run a 38 on them under the weight of a truck without probs, so under the zuk they would be indestructable, trhe only person i know thar snaps birfs under his zuk is oilburner and I think it has more to do with the torque KLUNE-V and a vw diesel. remember the smallest diam. of a toy axle is still larger then the largest diam of a 44 So if your looking for an axle that is not going to be a pain in the aRs, just do the toy and suck it up . you can modifey a turd but they are still turds unless this is strreet only or you stay under 32" tire then the zuk axles kick ass AGAIN my experience and o2 Pay now pay later either way youll pay
