Doin the SAS thing soon, has anyone reworked aftermarket TTB arms to work on a solid axle? Is it even worth the hassle, or safe for that matter??

Discuss. :popc1:

honestly, why?? you should be able to score the proper radius arms if you have a D44 to do the swap with, and even if you dont, they arent that expensive. the only rig i can think of off hand that used TTB arms would be Oscar, but he used aftermarket extended arms and modified them to work with a D60 and setup the bushing connection to be similar to that of a land rover

you can use the stock radius arms and get the bent and twisted extensions for them. I believe it prettymuch achieves the same effect.

How would you connect the radius arms to the axle?

Beavis, Go read a little on the swap and see how much the average total cost is.
Why would you try to save $20 - $75 in parts to do an inferior job?

If 6% of your cost are these radius arms, and you can't afford that ... I'd make sure you can afford the swap before you start. I'd hate to see you skimp on steering parts and not get new TRE's...
