September 6, 2010I need help making up a parts list to do a solid axle swap on my truck? What axles would be good? Also what other parts I need and where to get them... Been having trouble finding any good info to work with.

February 18, 2011Well it seems not to much has changed on this forum... No one every replys back to my messages... Axle swap is going slow due to the cold factor, but I picked up a 77-79 Dana 60 hp and a 70`s 14 bolt for 650. Got the 14 bolt rebuilt with 456 gears a mini spool and a disk brake conversion. Need to mount new perches and shock mounts and bolt it up. Got some slightly used driveshafts with 1410 joints. So going to built 60 after its mounted. Got a set of 18x 9 8x6.5 rims with some 35 in toyos for cheap as well hope it goes together soon....
February 19, 2011cool!
and no pictures??
no! we are here and we could have responded but we did not get on the puter last night
it sounds like you have it all under control.
did you get a track bar and track bar mounts, or are you using leaf springs??
February 19, 2011Well I was on here fast last night so any pics I posted ended up in my album. Right now I have the parts to mount the track bar but wont mount one tell Im finished if it is needed. I have a set of used early 80`s chevy springs for the front... Im not a right man so coils are out for the moment. Trying to keep it under 3000. Im only shooting for about an 8 inch lift max so I can drive it down the road without problems... Will see lol
