Doing some research..

So here I am at work, trying to keep myself busy when I decided I would start utilizing this time to make a decision on what route I want to go with an SAS.. Came across a pretty useful site, lots of info, lots of pictures and ideas.

http://nissannut.com

Anyways, looking into the options more, I think this may be the way I will go.

Do a radius arm / coil swap with a D44, all depends on your budget and fabrication skills

I am not a follower, I don't need a toyota to be with the cool crowd.

I'll stick with this for now, and MAYBE in the future, after I'm done destroying this one, I'll think about a toyota.

Well I'm definitely looking for a cheaper route, yet not as hokey pokey as the one on texas4x4.org .. Fabrication Skills, minimal. BUT, everyone needs to start somewhere, and I'll never learn and better myself if I don't.

Radius Arm Swap, would you say its more cost-effective, or an easier build, or both?

100% agreed.

You can pick up a set of radius arms for 25 bucks, build your own mounts, and an entire new bushing set is like 50 bucks

whats your plan? what size tire
What front axles? DO NOT use an U 100 axle. they are narrow and the diff is more centered. it will hit your oil pan.
