I didn't know where to post this so since it's got to do with my SAS I thought I'd post it here.

I'm wanting to start my SAS on the bronco and have ran across what I think is a deal!

I can get this hole setup for $300. I think it's a steal. The only thing is the front is welded and I'd have to change that. The back is LS.





So question is yah or nah?

Anything else I need to ask the guy.

3 bills seems good to me.
what gears are in it?
depending on the front springs your gonna run, you might not need
those tall lower spring mounts.
They've got 4:10's in them which I figure for now will be fine seeing as I'm running 35's with stock 3:50.

I don't plan on using the tall spring perches. I'll just cut/grind them off an use the stock spring cups.

From looking closer at the pick it looks like the 10.25 has been shaved some.

cinder blocks? Be really really carefull. I've had them colapse with just trailers sitting on them. I use 6x6 wood blocks now. Not bashing just don't want something to happen to a fellow Bronco owner :thumbup

I understand what you guys are saying. I've got them sitting with the wholes vertical. Do you think they would still possibly collapse? Once I had it sitting on the blocks (wheels still mounted) I shook it to see if it was stable.

Not trying to justify them but at the moment this is all I have.

I did notice you had them positioned so they are strongest but i just don't think i'd trust them with my life if it were me. I went to home depot and bought a couple 6x6's and then cut them in cinder block lengths. i also used a 2x6 screwed to the side of the stacked 6x6's to keep them all togeter so they can't slide apart.

Cheap insurance if you ask me

They are American Eagle 589 15X10 5 on 5.5 If I measure right they are 3.75" backspacing. When I ordered them I just told them what they were going on and what wheel I wanted.

You wanting them? I'll sell'em to ya!

Well got some work done today!

Got all the shocks, brake calipers, and some steering off. I don't have a big enough wrench to take the nut off the steering box for the pitman arm. Going to my FIL's tonight for supper so I'll get me a bigger wrench.

The brake calipers I hung them off a body mount so I don't have to fool with bleeding the brake fluid at the moment.



Couldn't get the ABS plug off the axle so I just disconnected it. I won't have ABS anyways after the SAS is completed. I rolled the pigtail up and secured it to the hub.

In this pic you see the level sitting on the frame. This is to make sure the vehicle is level so when I mount the solid axle under it everything will be squared up.

I don't really get the whole level thing. I feel like with suspension that you are customizing, you never know quite how it's going to sit until you set it on the ground. I built the front how I wanted it, then dialed in the rear to match. (Turned out to be a pita.) I'm just saying that level on jack stands isn't necessarily level on the ground.

How does everyone like the way the bronco is sitting now. Shawn (Gub_Ni) let me borrow some heavy duty jack stands. These jack stands are sitting on 2" cap blocks. These babies are befty!!:kewl:

Thanks Shawn!



I also built a couple of these for the axles. Makes moving them around a lot easier.
