im buying stuff for my solid axle swap as i get the money. but in the meantime i have began working on putting the front spring hangers on and such. i want to go ahead and take out the ifs diff and cv shafts. just go ahead and get this out of the way. but i still have to drive the truck sometimes. a few ppl told me that if i took out the diff and cv shafts,...going down the road the tires would cave in cause they had no support. but i dont see how. i had a friend drive his without one shaft for over a year..............so,,would it be safe to take out the diff and axle shafts and still drive it????
