just wondering for doing a SAS in a 92 Sonoma(S10) what kind of axles should i use, without having to change transfer cases and saving a bit of money.
Starting it in 2 weeks. cheaper would be better :)

what side is the transfer case drop on? if its driver side, find an early bronco dana 44, should be the right width, and you could throw the eb 9" in aswell, unless you plan on bigger than 37's it should do fine

Sounds good s-10 is on the driver side

oh another thing i forgot to mention, is if you do get the eb front end, just use the radius arms and its a weekend swap(other than the odd bolts or brake lines or whatever you forget to buy)

alright thnx, early F150 would be the exact same as the bronco wouldnt it? and how much would a set of them cost around? complete ones.

its the earlier 70's bronco, some had a dana 30(the really early ones) and others had dana 44's(up to 1977, after they turned full size, which is wider than the early bronco and what is under my truck right now)

probably have to search around bc4x4 or craigslist or somewhere to find them, but shouldnt be more than 700, i think i had a set lined up for 500 or so once upon a time

only problem with toy and chev is the pumpkin is on the wrong side.

80's ford's didnt have a straight axle, and the 78-79 f150/bronco will be too wide, unless you have it narrowed, but that could cost some $$$$(or you just dont give a fawk like me)
