'67 Scout 800 spring-over-axle conversion Q's.

I recently purchased a '67 Scout 800 w/ 266 V8 and 4 spd. manual tranny. I am trying to get an idea as to how much entire spring over axle conversion project will cost. I have been told I will need to modify steering and brake lines. Does anyone know what exactly is required for the brake and steering modifications? Also, is there any other parts or modifications that I have not mentioned please let meknow. If anyone has any recommendations to do this service in the So Cal area I would really appreciate it. Also, any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Richard G.

Front drive shaft, check out www.dandcextreme.com and look at the buildup section.

that depends on to what level you take it. On the cheap side you relocate the metal lines, simply weld perches on top of your axles and possibly modify drivelines. Total cost less than 2 bills.

I wouldn't put those dinky springs back on a build up rig though, I'd be swapping the entire suspension, and I wouldn't run those stock axles so I'd ditch those and then your going to need to set your caster and then and then and then..

If your asking these questions, its way out of your league. Take it to IHonly and warm up the Visa.

I suggest you head over to the Binder Bulletin and start doing some serious research.
