Finally pulling the trigger on a SAS, found an axle that's out of a 76 k5. Rear is out of a rodeo. Plan is to run run 44044 leafs. Nothing crazy! This is my first expireance with anything like this so I'm gunna probably be asking a decent amount of questions. Thanks in advance

All the front end components are up for sale if anyone wants them. Front diff is regeared to 4.10s literally never used... New rack (500 miles on it) rancho lift, maybe has 6k on it.
What are you SAS guys running for front shocks?

Little update. Ordered 4.88 gears with rebuild kits, rims and tires last night 37x12.5 16.5 and basic D windows I believe were the name. The only thing left is the bar for the top of the flat top knuckle and shocks. I also have to pick up my axle. It was just removed last night from the K5

Got the IFS all cut off except the crossmember and rear LCA mounts. Test fitted the axle/springs. Need to order 3" bushings for the 44044 springs tho. Really stupid how they come with different sizes in them.

I got the front hanger tacked in. What should I set the shackle angle at? Without the axle or any weight on the springs.

Got 1 "c" off tonight. Probably the least enjoyable thing ive done so far. The rear is on it's own weight. Still need to redo the gas tank? Crossmember. Plan is to have the front axle somewhat put back together so I can bolt it in. Ring and pinions + install kits will be here by this weekend same with the fiberglass.
