cv joint front end converted to straight axle

What are your thoughts on it and how hard.Ive helped a buddy do this years ago and now im ready to do mine.I got a 90 model chevrolet z71 with the japsper 350, 5 speed transmission,6 in pro comp suspension lift along with a 3 inch body.Seems the indepedent front ends arent reliable when you start lifting a truck like this.

Pretty simple swap. There are quite a few 88-98 build threads.
totally depends on what you are gonna do with it as to which direction to go...

You should have found this on your own....
