Question IFS to Straight Axle ?'s

Anybody ever converted their IFS to straight axle? I have a 98 2500 Chevy that I am planning to do. Busted the CAD on mine. <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0">

Also it has front anti-lok how to you get around that. Oh yeah, anybody got a cheap ford dana 60?

I converted my '95. I used ORU's kit. The brackets can be fabricated but it's a real pain in the butt. I just unhooked my abs. The light comes on on the dash but you can take it out if it bothers you. If you have any questions e-mail me ChadH82@aol.com

i believe you will have to change the transfer case or get a driver side drop front end (ford). My buddy is about to do it and that is what he is figuring out right now.

Yea I will have to get a drivers drop. It is way more involved that just a t-case swap. The whole exhaust system is on pass. side and mine has dual cats, so it will be a ford front. How much did the kit cost from ORU? Did you install it or have it done?

I did everything in my driveway. It took about 3 days. ORU has a website at www.offroadunlimited.com. They have prices there. The labor for someone to do it would probably run close to $2000 I would think. Maybe more.
