SD Axles in an obs

I'm just about done with the back. I picked them up out of an 04 for 350 for the pair.

He wouldn't part with the sway bars, some I'm shopping for swap bars front and rear, but I have 3.73 gears and 4 wheels discs. And aftermarket SD wheels seem to be much more readily available around here!







I'll get more pics as we go! I have a Kingpin D60 for sale, and a 10.25 too. But It feels kinda wore out...

meause the play in the pinion... 1/8" is brand new so it may feel wore out but it may not be. mine had 3/16" play in the pinion when i sold the rear... had 118k on it.

what are you gonna do bout the spring perches being wider on the SD axles then whats in your truck....???

It's in and good so far, I'll definitely keep an eye on it though.

How do you like your 3.73? That was the main purpose here. I got the axles for how much a gear set for the front costs, so i figure wth!?

Turning radius is so much better than the kp! I'm still on obs springs so the ride isn't much different. Nice to have 4x4 again though!
