There are lots of choices on the market for solid axle conversions; so what makes this kit stand out? Our kits are the most complete and feature the highest quality parts, at the best price anywhere. These SAS kits include a front diff armor plate, upper axle gusset, wheel bearing and knuckle service kits; items most others charge extra for.
Options include upgrading the steering arm to a six-stud unit for $70 more.
Installation Notes: This kit will require extensive modification and welding capabilities.
To install your solid axle kit you're going to need a solid front axle from a (79-85) Pick-Up or 4Runner, and a long spline drive shaft. We offer these kits in three different heights. Don't forget about the matching rear lift kit!
On V-6 installations, we recommend moving the front hanger forward 3/4". This allows the tie rod to clear the stock 4WD oil pan. It also kicks the shackles forward slightly helping the springs to carry the heavier load of the V-6 motor.
Application Note: Now our front springs are available in a heavy-duty version with a 25% higher spring rate. We have added a 7th leaf and readjusted the length of the leaves to match. If you are running a larger v6 or v8 motor you will appreciate the extra weight carrying capacity of these springs. Check out part #2051115 if you want to upgrade to the heavy duty version of this kit.
