All of these parts are available fromJeff's Bronco Graveyard . This information came from Matt (aka JAFO) who has already done the swap. I just put it in a user friendly format. I will be pulling these parts together for my SAS, I'll be going with 4.56 gears, obviously you can choose whatever gearing you like. I hop you find the information helpful, and if you don't well..:goodfinge :goodfinge

I was not aware of that. Thanks Damon. When you say spindle bolts do you mean the bolts that hold the spindle on or the spindle nut?

yeah, that always has confused me. The two nuts with the washer that hold the hub and rotor on. IIRC, the nuts that actually hold the spindle on are the same size also, but the spindles are different
Excellent..that will save some $$$..Some list of parts has just been shortened. I should be able to save around $200 - $300 from that.

actually, i think you can just get weld on threaded ends, then just cu the tub to your needs and insert the ends, throw a bead around it and your done.
i thought about that but the rod is going to be huge. the TRE is already 7/8" then add on the bung and if u want .250 wall tubing, ur looking at a 2" dia. tie rod. it would be nice and strong for a center link :thumbup

Ok, here is my input.

Save yourself alot of death wobble and hasel. If you are ordering from Rock equipment, Tony, get a hieme (sp) joint trac bar. It is still ajustable and holds much better than the usual bushings you get. My experince and Dons has been that with aggresive trail time like the Dusy Ershim 34 mile trial that takes 3 to 4 days depending on how hard you push it, or running the entire Rubicon you will kill your trac bar bushing after a long trail and have the death wobble on the way home.

Also when you riem out your knuckles to do a highsteer, stop a little short of what you think is just right because they will seattle in and become perfect. If you do over riem them, I have the link for these great chromaly cones to fix a lose knuckle hole. i am running a ram and believe me if your tie rods are a little lose they will bore out more on the trail.

Hope all that made sense.
