1999 f150 superduty sas

Little history on the truck. This was my wife's first vehicle saved every penny for 2 years to buy this truck. She has always wanted to lift it and a couple years ago we were in a financial position to make it happen we wanted to sas it so bought a 76 150 dana 44 and collected some parts. Well long story short I was shipped away for work and truck needed work on the front end to be safe for her to drive so we scrapped the sas plans and bought a 4" rough country kit and 35s. We installed an arb in the rear and have been wheeling it and driving it for the last couple years. Last trip to hidden falls we messed up the steering ( bent drag link into frame) and since ball joints and control arm bushings were all worn out again we decided it was time for the sas.

Traded a m&p 40c for the axles out of a 2008 f250. Planning on running a spool in the front and hooking up the vacuum hubs to act like a selectable locker, and a detroit in the rear with 5.13 gears. Truck has the stock 5.4 and 4r70w trans. Still trying to figure out transfer cases. I picked up a 205 Wednesday. Wanting to run a 203 doubler or strong box.

Got the front end torn down and old bracketed cut off. This has been the hardest part so far. This is my first "build" so cutting things off with no going back was a little nerve racking.Name:  image.jpg

Little comparison of the old and new brakes. It's going to be nice having good brakes again. Name:  image.jpg

Had to modify the transmission crossmember for the radius arms. After I built this I realized it won't clear the drive shaft. Rookie mistake I know. But I'm planning in building new crossmember when I get the tcase plan sorted out so it's ok.Name:  image.jpg

Built this temporary crossmember out of 2x4 1/8" to test my idea. Wanted to mount the radius arms back were the torsion bar mount was. Planning on building the real crossmember out if 2x4 3/16" and incorporate the t-case mount into it as well. And the radius arm tabs will also be better reinforced and thicker probably use the ballistic fab 90* tabsName:  image.jpg

Cool, the more 05+ 60's on the trail the better for aftermarket support.

I'm jealous. I've wanted to put the same axle under the same truck for some time now. What are your plans for the steering? There's not much room around the pitman arm the way it faces rearward.
