a couple of buddys of mine have done this swap. one of them used an 8.8 and a dana 44 out of a 70s ford. the other used a passenger drop 10 bolt and a 12 bolt rear and did a transfercase swap. from looking at it it looks fairly simple. if you want me to ill PM you their emails you can talk to them on msn or what not about it

Still working on mine, 98 s10 ZR2, corp 10 front with 4 link and ranger coils. Lots of work.... seems to be never ending project, but fun none the less. A friend of mine did a swap on a '95 jimmy aswell using a Tj front axle. Anyways, any questions just give me a shout.

still in the process on mine. toy axles new motor trans tranny. go with toy axles and a new t-case stronger than a d-30. your also gonna have to carry 2 spares if your keeping the s10 rear diff

Some good info on this site...


09-17-2006, 10:34 AM
Yah right now i have a dana 44 front but i need to completely build the axle its just the housing. its sooo $$ and hard to find parts for this axle. i think im just gona go dana 30 w/4:10's but even still its kinda hard to find one all together with brakes/steering linkages and the whole shibang!

09-21-2006, 08:28 PM
drew were about are you. i have a 92 cherokee with axles and everything . for parts

09-30-2006, 12:20 PM
kewl, is it a leaf set up or a coil?

09-30-2006, 12:34 PM
cherokees are coil up front with leafs in the rear :D

hey hey I got a 91 sonoma I'm thinkin of doin the same thing wanted a dana 44 but rare and $ gonna get dana 30s, same with my buddy with a 98 ranger. how did you get the 3in suspension out of you truck.... custom lift? If your puttin in the solid want to sell the 3in. PM on you progress with the SFA swap

10-19-2006, 03:13 AM
ask dave should the close to the same thing. sas is a sas if you ask me. oh and coils would be badass, flex more better than leafs

10-21-2006, 10:20 AM
but doing coils would be 10x harder to custom in! i think to start im gona do leafs, unless someone could show me an easier way to put coils in.

Balls First

yippers im still trying to come across "the right" axle. i am starting to tear apart all my old sfa crap! i got my hangers and stuff all welded up. just gota weld them in now! i will post pictures sometime this week!

11-21-2006, 09:22 PM
hopefully you wait for the axle before you weld the brackets in. it would be dumb to weld it in the find you have the wrong width. or maybe you ave the mesurments? god luck.

11-22-2006, 03:22 AM
yippers got all the messurements. we already finished my buddies truck! looks and drives amazing, way better than stock!
