Scout 800, SOA or RS?

I'm putting Scout II axles under a Scout 800. One of the experienced guys on the BB said to go spring over in the rear and RS in the front (I'll be using 33" tires). Than one of my rock crawling friends (Scout 80, Cad engine, 37"s) came over and said I should go SOA on the front also so I won't have all the RS brackets in the way. If you ever did this you know its alot of work living under your vehicle for a few days, so I want to get it right. Also, while I'm doing this it would be very easy to streach the wheel base a little, 100" is stock but Im thinking of going with 103" or so. Give me some input. Thanks

I would personally start with a SOA, and run it that way for a while. You can always do a RS later.
Dont forget, our axles (SII) have 0* caster. doing an SOA will help that little problem out.
