you're a geezer, you know my original plan was leaf.


If I ever went D60.....nah....I've got the coil stuff already there, leaf will never be for me. Nor will a D60 unless one falls on my head for practically free.

I have a 94, that has rear abs,e4od trans. I smoked the rear end on it and want to know how hard would it be to put the old straight axles under it ? I have found a set with 4" lift for $200.00 I know what I need to do to the front. it is the rear that is giving me problems. how do I bypass the abs sensor on the rear without a trans swap? I have been told that these axles wont work? if they will can someone plz help me out with info?
thnx

is this old axle a ford 9" or from a more heavy duty truck? The 9" would be a bit difficult to mount the VSS sensor in, but they do make aftermarket sensors that mount up by the transfer case. I used a D60 from a '78 F250, and drilled the diff to mount the sensor, and it's worked flawlessly. So anyone telling you this is full of sheeeeett.

I was quoting Chris cuz he likely remembers that I was all set to do a leaf spring D44 front, I just couldn't find the proper axle.

Go here:
SAS with a little twist

go to posts 42-45. If you need more info. I'd PM GKR (Greg) and ask him about that sensor relocator and how it's been working. I don't think it's cheap though...I wanna say like in the $275 range.

bigred the answer is No. there is no axle tube behind those wedges. Either set it up for coils, or youll have to get a different D44.



biteme4u, if i understand you correctly, you want to build a big truck so you dont have to plow the snow? 39.5"+ tires? Cheap and 40s dont go together. Start saving up for one-ton axles, or buy a F350 and lift that.

I agree. He wants the clearance that the big tires get, but that big of a tire really means D60 front/Fullfloat rear if you want it to be reliable.

ok a quick question, about how wide do you make your radius arm mounts on the frame when your using 1.25inch heims. now i know i wont get an exact measurements beucase things could be different for other people. if someone had pics of their mounts with just heims hangin from them id get a better idea of what id need

thanks

roughly the width of the frame. use spacers like the cage stuff.

Are there 8-lug HP 44s out there? What is a good truck to get one from? Or am I better off 8-lugging one myself?

70s F250s, altho it comes in leaf sprung versions only (it is referred to as the D44HD if you want to search the forums for info on it). If you want coils you can either weld the Cs to that axle, or take the 8-lug outers and swap em onto a 5-lug axle coil sprung axle.

33's will often fit the 80-86 Bronco without a lift. How big you want to go from there relates to how much fender you cut away. Perhaps a 36 with alot, but you'll have the rims/tires hitting your radius arms when turning. I have 33's on my 86 bronco with no lift and no problems with rubbing the arms or fenders. Good luck!
