Sorry to cut in, but if I was to box in the crumple zone, fab up a crossmember, use a front hanger from (lets say a 78' 250?), use the rear hanger (off the front springs) of an 80's leaf-sprung 250 or 350, and steering off a late 80's/ early-mid 90's 350 steering in order to do a leaf-sprung sas swap, correct?
If I follow correctly, I would need to narrow my front spring mount into my fabbed-up crossmember for 32" spacing, but I could mount them in line with the framerails (wih an x-member of course) for a 36" spacing? And most of yall get about 4"-5" of lift with factroy f350 springs, right?
It's time to put new balljoints and bushings on the ttb, and before I cuss and fight, and pour money into it (and still having to deal with all the allmighty tire-eater
), I'm going to at the very least least consider a low-buck solid 44 swap, even if i do end up spending a few extra $.
