SAS Check list

Alright guys here's what I have so far....










I know I need ball joints, brake lines, calipers, hubs and gears for the front; anything else?
As for the rear I only have the springs, shackles and hangers, so I need shocks, perches, tabs and gears. I'm thinkin of finding a rear D44 to make things a little cheaper parts wise.

Run down some specifics of what springs and all we are looking at... I have a set of axles sitting in my garage that are ready to go ( was/still am putting them under another rig ) But hell I just want a toy and I probably have enough parts to justify throwing them under the GF's Xterra !

Havent messed with Nissan's much so apologies for my lack of knowledge.. I can assume what the springs are but curious on what ya'll are using on these.

Thanks

Front springs are yota pro comp, rear springs are chevy 63's. D44 front axle, ECG steering, Crane knuckle, Rancho rs5000 shocks. TG hoops and lower shock mounts, Calmini front hanger kit.

When you mount your shockmounts on the axleside, turn them 90* to how they are now, or else they will bind.

Also, if your going to upgrade the rear axle, go straight to a 60 or a 14 bolt etc... Rear 44's are a recipe for disaster. You could run a 9.5" SF 14 bolt and retain the 6 lug pattern, or upgrade the front to run 8 lug.

Thanks for the heads up! What about a ford 9"?

You could run a 9" and do 5x5.5 outers on your waggy front end and have matching patterns. Might be kinda tough to find a 9" that is the right width.

A C&C 14 bolt with SRW hubs is suposidly 63" wide.

Or a 9.5" rear end out of a Land Cruiser.

Lots of different axle choices. What type of gearing are you going to run in the axles?

Toyota RUF's are the spring to run IMO. Keeps it low, and moves the tires forward, increasing your approach angle and allowing you to run bigger tires by keeping the tires out of the firewall.

good call on the Ford 9", but it will be a more $$ than a Rodeo D44. You can cut the 9" down to the width you want and order custom length shafts (Dutchman)...which all add to the cost. Just depends on how hard you plan on wheeling.

If you're just hitting the local 3.0-3.5 rated trails on 33-35" tires, the 44 will be fine. Anything more and I'd get a 9" or if you are not easy on the throttle.

I think I'll stick to finding a 44. I don't plan on doin any real crazy trails till I get a feel for the way she's gonna handle then if I get a wild hair I can always upgrade later.

'real nice' and 'junkyard' don't go together in my vocabulary - particularly around south Phoenix aka little Tijuana

It was at Just Truck and Van is all I know.

27th ave and buckeye has the lowest prices ive seen but the good stuff is usually gone everytime i go lol

if you dont end up getting that one id try the pick n pull on 34th and broadway they usually have decent prices

oh the other thing i think you want 97 or older , the 98+ dont use the standard dana 44 stuff but you may want to verify that
i know when i picked up the rodeo 44 i had i was told to go pre 97

here ya go

Thanks for the info Aaron. The only thing I didn't like is there isn't a 5:13 ring and pinion for the newer rodeo 44.

Anyone wanna do a JY day next weekend?

I guess I'll just have to be patient and wait for the right axle to come along.

I work this Saturday, I got next weekend off to go to the rodeo, and thats only during the evening.

Oh shit $180 is kinda steep, the one on 27th has completes for 85 with a $10 core, but I only saw 2 rodeos there and a couple of passports... I'll check the ones down broadway next weekend.
