i know its been posted before but i cant rememebr anything about it, what do i have to do to run rears upfront, and should i run my stock ones or find some 86+ rears. is it easy as longer brake lines and longer shackles and how much lift?? and is there anything that will give me atleast 2" of lift for the rear that i can just use a longer shackle for?? i dont have access to a welder or the money to pay right now thats why im so cheap haha[cheers]

Stock rears won't give you any lift, they can't support the wieght of the motor. So you need to get another rear pack and mix & match the leaves. Most people get rid of the overload and run 6 leafs.

Here's a great link for rears up front: http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=265669

you need some sort of crossover steering too, cause the axle will move 1.5 inches forward, and your steering (draglink) won't work any more.
