The overall cost on my SAS is going through the roof, due to me not thinking of the small stuff, like cylinder refills, new welding goggles, stick, grinding pads, carb cleaner, new front end seals, gaskets, brake pads,turning rotors,u-bolts ect.ect.ect

I hear ya there. I think I have almost everything I need but tires and maybe wheels if I go beadlocks. I know for a fact I have all of what your are missing, but I'm positive there will be something that pops ups screwing up the whole deal. Oh well, it will be worth it in the end..

Here is my formula: figure out how much it will cost, then double it. Figure out how much time it will take, then double it. It works every time. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

yeah the little stuff will add up quickly....I did my SAS and chevy swap for about $2200

I started taking stuff off friday night and had the whole front end on saturday afternoon and then had it completed front and rear sunday noon time.

so my whole swap only took 2-2.5 days


a little advice:

use a torch to cut the IFS...some of the metal is thick!
have your front end ready to go with the springs on and hangers and shackles already on the frame so you can just bolt it up
