ford explorer sas

Ok so my buddy has a 2wd ford explorer and is wanting to turn it 4x4 and do a sas on it. this is the first ford that im gunna really "play" with so plz no flaming. What im planing is a 44 front and 9 rear is this a good start do far? hes wanting 33's to 35's so yeah. Can i use the coils and buckets from a say a 70's model bronco or something of the sort and the traction bars running from the 44 to the frame? and as for the tranny and tranfer case should i hunt for a doner 4x4 of the explorer or can i use a comethin like a c-4 or 6 and 203 tansfercase? If i go this way am i gunna have a prob like on the chevies with the VSS? im tried searching for threads on here and googled and yahooed some place but they all have started with 4x4s so any help and ides would be great.

If its newer than a 1998, you'll have issues with the VSS. 91-97 all had the sensor in the transfer case (or 2wd tranny).

Mine started out life as a 2wd.
