    Hey, any solid axle is better than the IFS. My friend's Z71 Suburban on 33's busts transfer cases and eats balljoints for breakfast. Not to mention the stupid steering goes out of whack every 3 months... Oh well, wise swap! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    BTW, we need pics!!!!! And your signature, my friend Travis made fun of my other buddy Nick's Samurai on 31's. Well, Travis's 1980 Shortbed Chevy on 39" MT Baja Belted's gets stuck in a pond, and the Samurai pulled him out! A 62 horsepower Samurai pulling out a huge Chevy...too funny.

    same thing happened here but at the beach. my friend in an 83 chevy was digging ruts for the sammi to play in. well he broke something in the front axle. well this truck is on 44's and so the sammi on 27 inch tires pulls him out. everyone was freaked. it was funny.

    no i actually had a local shop do it. they do great work at a great price. having the local shop do it actually cost less than if i had tried to get the oru kit/steering/springs/shocks/etc. i really wanted to do it myself at home but when it cheaper to have a shop do it ill go with the shop.
