yep, a little more specific question would help
IMHO
A lot of scout axles are successfully run under Jeeps. Their front yoke/hub assembly has some critics (not me).
Not really sure what your needs are;
1953 springs are probaby useless, new or upgraded springs might be a good idea.
What are you building? DD or trail rig?
Are you lifting? How much? SOA? SUA? Body?
I guess you have already done some measuring?
Are the axles wide enough for what you have planned for your truck?
Are you relocating the perches? Hangers?
Going to have to deal with brakes & master cylinder.
Is the frame sound? It's over 50 years old.

A lot of good info here for Scout equipment

From you name I guess you already have a "Land Crusher". I'm down the road from you about 30 miles.


Good luck

Scout II axles

The reason going to scout axles front have disc brakes and the rear has one piece axle.I was hoping someone had already done these modification and what springs they used.No problem welding in hangers for springs.The frame is good and I will plate the frame.This is going to be used for some off road.

keep the stock springs

I have a scout front axle under my 59 cj5 and I used the stock springs to do a spring over. It required a small bit of grinding on the differential housing to locate the passenger side spring correctly but was no big deal. I did the swap about 15 or more years ago and it has been fine. I run 5.86 gears, True Track and 38" swampers. The rear in a semi floating Dana 60 out of a F150 camper special
