Re: tracker rearend

I used just the center section from the tracker rear in mine, cut it out with a skill saw, welded the samurai tubes to it and used the samurai axles shafts. I wouldn't really recomend doing it this way, but it did work for me.

Re: tracker rearend

Cut and grind off all the coil stuff, set it under the truck, place the perches on it, samurai perches wont fit, measure equal distance from backing plate to perch on each side, make sure you have a correct pinion angle, Weld it up, get a toyota front double cardan driveshaft shorten it about 3 inches(depending on lift. Dont ask me about the parking break, cuase I'm using a transfer mounted one. :-)

Re: tracker rearend

thanx for the info, guys, has anyone swapped using the original coil springs instead of the leaf system? if so what springs would fit my 5" lift, would a samurai lock right fit the rear diff of the tracker?

Re: tracker rearend

I think it would be hard if not impossible to fabricate a coil setup using tracker parts that would flex better than leaf springs without spending much money.

Re: tracker rearend

I cant remember now, but I dont think it lined up properly, thats kinda why I gave up hope in doing something like that, I mean with enough time and cutting and welding it could have been done, but it was easier to just set it for leafs
