I gotta ask, why the watts linkages, why the radius arms?

If you spent the coin for axles, why the fuck are you using stock bullshit suspension? Thats kind of retarded.

mog axles are pretty cheap. especially overseas.
probably only a couple hundies. a mog build is at least budget....
at least he isn't trying to 4link it.......

im trying to make a bolt on convertion axle,so that i can sell them to other d2 owners , the idea is that you can swap your standard crap for one of these and some 40s with no messing about just a few hours labour, you would just drive your d2 into my shop in the morning and drive out the same day on portals with 40s that are fully lockable.

ahhhh....now I get it.

directions to the shop please. Never mind the wet bit I'll just get a snorkle (for me as the slut already has one).

nah, seriously good for you mate. Great idea. Sort of a "drive through" axle swap shop.

Really interested to see how you handle the electronics on this. That's a dragon I've yet to slay.

what are you going to do about the electronics? NAS D2's need input from the abs to operate without throwing all kinds of codes and kicking up all kinds of problems...

so to make this clear: you had custom tone rings made for the axle? I'm not familar with the mog axle, but how are you mounting the sensor so it read the tone ring? Also, I looked on that site and didn't see anything like you mentioned....more info

thats right , the axle is cut and a lower plate is fitted above the ring that is fixed to the shaft, the ring is in two halves that bolt together , the standard abs sensor is used. if you contact mark at disco parts by email just say you want to correct the speed after fitting bigger wheels he will give you more info on this part.

so you can set the mog axle up with abs calipers? Anways, don't give a shit about tc/hdc/abs, I'm using hard lockers, and I'm not even that concerned about the speedo. I'm just need to have proper input from the abs sensors so the truck doesn't start throwing rough road codes. I have something cobbed up now, but it's based on the LR sensor and tone ring, not a Toyota...
Good idea about the custom sensor/axle set-up...Greg, this is exactly what you need for your swap, lucky you... I could probably do the same with the toy axles, but I want to be able to use stock stuff for spares...

Every time someone cuts me off in the VW. I would not mind an 04 if the mileage was not suckish. The Classic is almost back on the road.
