    Yes they are solid axle front and leave sprung and they have closed knuckles up front but they are tiny axles. It's easy to do a spring over with em.

    Or you could look for an 85 or old Toyota p/u.. :)

    Also, if you're willing to make the drive, I have a friend that has (3) Sammi's he'd sell for around $1300! :thumb:
