    im looking for some close up shots of the rear spring mount on a SFA conversion. I am currently working on one and need some ideas for the setup. I am going to be using front springs from a k-5. I am also going to be running full width axles. any input would be nice

    because of the contour of the frame I think the best idea is to open up the frame box and mount the shackle in the frame. I was gonna do fullwidth but I got cherokee axles instead, great price and still street legal.

    also what have you guys used for steering setup? Is there any good way to keep the stock crossover that the s-10's have

    get rid of everything, retaper the pitman arm for a 1 ton TRE and go with it. If you have the front axle pushed way forward, get an Astro box since its the same but the pitman arm turns the opposite direction(arm is in front of the box).
