Gm axles for soa

How easy is it to swap blazer or GM axles in a scout 2 for a SOA setup. I have heard that it is a fairly simple swap and that they pretty much just bolt in.

holy fawk this place has gone to hell

how bout you pull out a fawkin tape measure and check. Just because this place has gotten soft does not mean you can post dumbass newbie questions that really dont have an answer. Simple for me would probably be a cluster fawk for you. you wanna try again with a specific question?

The only problem is going to be clearance against the engine. In order to gain more clearance, you should probably replace the timing chain with an aftermarket unit. See this post for details.

How is this for specific. Is it true that if you replace your blinker fluid with halogen blinker fluid it will fix a sticky piston return spring?

the comedy is getting worse than the tech... (spelling corrected thanks to trout's ever vigilante spell checking!)



Yes it *can* be a "bolt on" swap... the stock GM perches line up almost perfectly with the SII spring spacing... however there is MUCH MORE to it than that. A simple search will guide you with more info than you can handle... and probably a couple step-by-steps.

1/2 the guys here are running GM front axles.. in one form or another.

Hence I said "almost"


then again, I have instaled "stock" axles that required prying and hammering on the springs to get them to drop in.... so.....

At least your a quick learner. Most people argue for 45 post before they get pissed and never come back.
