Here's what it will hopefully look like after the straight axle is put in.
Starting the teardown. First, the stock arms and bracket must come off.
Then the front diff had to come out....
.... then the upper control arm brackets were cut off leaving a clean frame rail to work with...
Slide the D30 under to see how it looks.
...and all this left over. Anyone need S-Series front end parts?
Pop a coil in to see how things are lining up.
With the control arm lowers built, it was time to put on the axle brackets. These pieces were cut from 1/4" plate steel. Reinforcements were used all the way around supplying 360 degrees of weld around the axle tube as well as supplying lateral and torsional stability <back>
