Outboarding the springs means moving your spring hangers/shacklemounts outside of the framerails. BlueTorchFab, Poison Spyder Customs, and other companies make a kit to do this or you can fab your own brackets.
You'll also want to look into either an soa, link suspension, whatever you want.
As far as the axles go, if they're used/gunked up you'll need to rebuild them etc... You'll need new driveshaft's most likely. That kind of stuff.

That pretty much sums it up.
